While I was a graduate student, I supported myself by working for four years as an thesis and dissertation editor at USC for both the Graduate School and the Rossier School of Education. I’m familiar with university formatting guidelines as well as MLA and APA styles. Now I free-lance as a manuscript editor for style, formatting and content.
My rates are based on the job, that is, how much work needs to be done on the manuscript at $40 an hour for formatting, $50 an hour for copy editing. Once I see your manuscript, I’ll be able to give you an accurate estimate for the total job.
