Project Description

I am looking for a professional proofreader/editor for my academic paper. The paper is about 22,000 words and is in the field of finance. This is a revised and extended version of the paper which was previously proofread by a [url removed, login to view] member (see my previous projects). I attach a random section of the paper to give an idea about its current state.

I need regular editing for the first 1,500 words (Introduction part). No need to change sentence order but some sentences may require changes to improve the flow and readability. For the rest of the paper, it is 85% proofreading/ 15% editing (If a sentence is really bad then it should be edited or highlighted). The ultimate goal is that native speakers who will read the paper shouldn't be distracted from the content of the paper by the language.

Proofreading: spelling, grammar, articles, prepositions, awkward phrasing
Some sentence editing: if a sentence is awkward and hard to understand restructure/change

I expect the work to be finished within one week after the starting date. You must be a native English speaker and have relevant experience. I am not a native speaker.
