Pricing and Payment Options

Online payment

Pricing depends on the services and turnaround time.

Editing is charged by the hour and proofreading by the word. For a return in 4 or more business days, standard rates apply. For a return within 3 business days or one that requires evening or weekend work, rush rates apply.

You may choose from several payment options.


Standard Rates

1. Standard Hourly Rate for Editing: $65 (Canadian dollars)

The standard rate for editing services is $65 per hour (CAD). Work can usually be returned within 4 to 10 days, depending on scheduling and the length of your document.

I will send you an estimate for the maximum cost before work begins. If I work more quickly than estimated, I will reduce your fee accordingly. In general, I work at the following pace:

Advanced Science Editing: 2 to 5 pages per hour (including journal formatting) Standard Science Editing: 5 to 8 pages per hour

Editing speed may be faster or slower than these ranges—see "Why Does Editing Speed Vary?" (right-hand column). Note: 1 page = 250 words.

2. Standard Per-Word Rate for Proofreading: $0.03 (Canadian dollars)

The rate for Proofreading services is $0.03 per word (CAD).

To calculate the total cost of proofreading, with your document open in MS Word, select "Word Count" or click the "Recount" button. Multiply this number by $0.03.


Rush Rates

Rush rates apply if you require work to be completed within 3 business days, or when evening or weekend work is necessary to meet your deadline.

The rush rate for Advanced or Standard Science Editing is $85 per hour.

The rush rate for Proofreading is 0.04 per word. Both rates are in Canadian dollars.


Payment Options

Payment is required within 1 week of receiving the invoice.

Why Does Editing
Speed Vary?

No two documents are the same. Factors such as length, complexity, and the number of corrections that are required all contribute to editing speed. Extra time may be needed for papers written by an author whose first language is not English.
