Overview


Having worked at LexisNexis as an editor and commissioning editor then IOP Publishing as a production editor, I built a successful career in legal and STM publishing before specialising as a freelance academic copy-editor/proofreader, first for Palgrave Macmillan and then Oxford University Press and Intellect. More recently I have established supplier partnerships with Cambridge University Press, Bristol University Press/Policy Press, and Edward Elgar Publishing.

Selected academic journals I work on for OUP include Analysis and The Economic Journal.

My background in legal/STM publishing has also given me the opportunity to work on high-profile projects for global leaders in their respected fields, including Thomson Reuters, Chambers and Partners, and The International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Establishing clear expectations at the beginning of the copy-editing schedule is key to my successful working relationship with authors of monographs through to editors of multi-contributor titles. Building a sense of reliability and trust is paramount, contacting the author(s) to introduce myself and outline my approach to the copy-editing process.

Giving an author a copy-edited sample chapter at the earliest opportunity also makes for a happy working relationship so that the correct level of editorial intervention is established early on. My job as a copy-editor is ultimately to help shape the manuscript into clear, consistent, concise and accurate copy for all stakeholders involved – with more than 20 years' experience in publishing, nothing brings me more satisfaction than knowing that I am working with authors to help deliver print-ready titles.
