All of our professional academic editors have substantial experience of proofreading and editing for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, academicians and university faculty.

A trusted name in academic editing services

For academics: we can help improve the written English of your journal manuscripts, research proposals, CV/resumes and other documents. Our Cambridge Quality Guarantee is an assurance of this promise.

For students: we can deliver significant improvements to the English quality of your essays, assignments, applications and other documents.

For manuscripts that are intended to be published, we recommend our two-editor premium service. Having two editors review your manuscript ensures the highest possible level of accuracy. Read more about our services for journal manuscripts here.

A thorough review of your document

Through our rigorous and thorough academic proofreading service, we are able to add real value to documents such as:

“Accepted in my target journal”

“My manuscript was rejected from my target journal due to English language flaws. They requested that I seek professional help to fix the issues. After reading positive reviews, I tried Cambridge. The experience was highly satisfactory – after their work, my manuscript was accepted by the journal!”

– Jonas, University of Amsterdam.

“Corrected my grammar issues”

“Many thanks to the editors, Suzanne and Kathleen. After spending tens if not hundreds of hours working on my manuscript, I think I would have gone crazy if I had to proofread it. The editors have done a fabulous job of correcting my many mistakes.”

– Geoffrey, London, UK.

“Very satisfied with the work”

“I used Cambridge to edit my thesis and was very satisfied with the results. I subsequently used them to edit the manuscript that I developed from the original thesis. Again, they delivered satisfactory results. I will use them again in the future.”

– Fabiano, Toronto, Canada.


Subject-focused academic proofreading and editing services

Our ability to draw upon a wide talent pool of over 100 professional editors enables us to match documents with editors who are subject-matter experts. When a document is submitted to us, the editing manager reviews it and then assigns it to the editor from our team with the most appropriate qualifications, experience and skill set relevant to your paper’s topic.


Academic editors of the highest calibre

Our professional editors have the highest academic qualifications and experience from leading British and American universities.


How we will review your manuscript

Our premium quality editing and proofreading services for academics and students exceed beyond the simplistic grammar and punctuation reviews you will find from many other proofreading service providers. Our editors have the skills and expertise to add real, measurable value to the quality of your documents. We utilise the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word so you will see all of the amendments that we have made. If you are submitting a PDF file, we have other edit-tracking mechanisms available.
