Academic Editing Services


When you use Fix My English you get editing from me, Dr Ruth Amos.

I have a PhD in Chemistry and ten years experience as a postdoctoral researcher. I have worked in the fields of Synthetic and Physical Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Synthesis, Computational Chemistry, Materials Science, Catalysis, and Separation Science.

Document types

I provide a copy editing and ESL editing service for journal articles, conference papers and proceedings, reports, book chapters, funding applications, academic theses, and dissertations. 

While my area of expertise is Chemistry, I am experienced in editing documents from a wide range of scientific fields.

English as a second Language 

I have experience in ESL editing through working with Dr Gruyter Open and with my own PhD students from countries such as Iran, Korea, and China.

My editing will improve the clarity of the English and consistency of style and formatting of your manuscript ensuring that your work will not be misunderstood or misrepresented. I will edit for word choice, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalisation.

ESL Editing will ensure that your work will be at the highest possible standard and will have the best chance of publication.

reference formatting

I can also format your references according to the referencing style required for your document. If you want your references to be edited, you must include them in the word count.

Thesis editing

Academic theses will be edited according to the guidelines of the Institute of Professional Editors.

what will you receive?

When you upload your manuscript in a Microsoft Word format I will use track changes and provide you with two manuscript copies – a copy of the manuscript with changes shown, and also a clean copy of the manuscript. I will also provide a short summary of the changes that I have made, with explanations of any major changes.

I am happy to provide email correspondence about the changes I have made if clarification is required.
