Chris Cartwright - Editor

Exeter, United Kingdom

I am an experienced copyeditor specialising in Business, IT and Physical Sciences for authors, academics and publishers.

Overview

Reviews (1)

I have been a freelance editor for the last three years, and a business/IT consultant for the last 30.

I regularly edit scientific books and journal articles (Wiley, OUP, CUP, Sage). I also do a lot of work for non-native authors. I have a strong background in business (McKinsey), IT (consulting) and science (Cambridge University).

I have a strong personal interest in music (classical, jazz, folk), horology (clocks), photography (digital and analogue), cookery and poetry, and have edited texts in all these areas.

I work in Word, pdf markup (comments or BSI marks) and LaTeX.


My core business skill areas are marketing, software, organisational design and management, project management, data science and analytics. However, through my McKinsey experience, I am familiar with most aspects of corporate life. I have built a (£6m) business and managed its trade sale.

My core science skill areas are physics and engineering.

Chris helped us with proof reading a paper before submitting it to a scientific journal . He was very professional and delivered high quality on the agreed time. He did more than we initially asked for.
