I'm looking for a native English speaker with a good knowledge in academic proofreading in the field of social sciences. Knowledge both in academic-level writing in social sciences and especially in critical theory will be taken into account when choosing the proofreader.
There might be some minor editing of the paper necessary, but the work consists mostly of checking for the language errors, sentence structure, clarity, tightening and polishing the language and choosing the right wording so it adhers to the academic level writing. It might be that some sentences will have to be divided in the interest of clarity and to make the information easier to manage. Attention should also be paid to the use of definite and indefinite articles
The paper will consist of about ~[url removed, login to view] words --- but please take into account that a large chunk of the text comes down to the list of References (approx. 2000 words), which does not need to be checked! There are also a lot of in-text references that have already been thoroughly checked, and several direct quotations and citations from books (probably a couple thousand words).
! ! ! The document for the proofreading will be sent to the proofreader between 7th and 8th of May and should be finished by 11th of May at the latest (in 3 days). Please make sure this will be possible for you before biding on the project. ! ! !
Proofreading should be done in Microsoft Word with "Follow changes" option turned on and with possible explanations of why certain corrections to the text have been made (if the proofreader will deem that necessary in some of the cases). But I would ask the proofreader to please be careful not to change the meaning of the text.
- if you have some experience with writing or proofreading articles from social sciences;
- subjects you feel comfortable proofreading;
- if the demands written above for the proofreading are manageable to you.
