Document Formatting

I have extensive experience in designing and formatting publications and dissertations for myself and for professional bodies. If you require assistance in preparing your document for final submission or publication, contact me to discuss the formatting requirements and file formats. I prefer to work in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), the Apple iLife suite (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), Adobe Acrobat (DC or Pro) and Adobe InDesign.


Document formatting
From €50.00 per hour, minimum of one hour

Reference/Bibliography Checks

I can help straighten out your reference list and adapt your citations to the appropriate format for your publisher or examiner* (Harvard, APA, Chicago, MLA and more). I will also run a complete check of your document and flag any missing citations either in the body of the text, the footnotes or the final reference list. Please note that I charge flat, rather than per-word, rates for checking bibliographies, as this can mitigate disproportionate expenses on your end.

*Reference checks for assessed work must be approved by your supervisor(s), as it is the student’s responsibility to develop their own citation skills and to ensure that all works referenced are actually cited.


Reference checks (for completion and consistency) start at €50 per hour, with a minimum of one hour.

Bibliography revisions (for completed bibliographies, with checks for in-text consistency if relevant) start at €1.50 per bibliographic entry.
