Academic Editing Services Explained
What makes a good academic editor?
Academic editing is the most challenging type of editing there is. It requires deep knowledge of academic language, grammar usage, and complex document formatting methods, as well as the ability for unerring application of the many different referencing styles. Academic editors must have a very keen eye for detail, be able to concentrate for hours at a time, work under pressure and meet tight deadlines. In addition to having the required natural abilities a good editor must have had the right training, and years of experience. Very few people have this set of skills.
