Editorial Services

I am accepting offers of free-lance editorial work, especially (but not limited to) academic writing. My specialties are all in the humanities: East Asian studies, history, religion and theology, and musicology. I am able to work with most academic writing, however, except mathematics and other material that is heavily dependent on formulas and equations.

The services I provide range from simple proofreading through copy editing and line editing, to help with book preparation. I welcome any inquiries, and am delighted to consult with you on what may be most valuable for your purposes.

My fees obviously depend on the difficulty of the text and the level and amount of work needed. I will provide an estimate as part of our initial consultations. Generally I base these estimates on a scale roughly between $40 and $60 an hour, but may go higher or lower depending on the specific job. Email me at richard@richardcleaver.net to start the process, with a brief description of your project and what you want me to do with it.
