Proofessor - Proofreading Services



Many of our clients are aware of the need to publish their research work in respected journals and the benefits this can have for their professional reputation and career. In response to this demand, Proofessor now offers a service specifically tailored to those who wish to submit their papers to academic publications.


With this service, our qualified and experienced staff will:

  • Proofread your paper, amending the use of English where appropriate, including suggestions for change and querying of unclear elements where relevant.
  • Ensure that the paper is formatted to the style specified by your target journal, e.g. making sure that references are correctly presented both within and at the end of the text; ensuring that all figures and tables are appropriately labelled and referred to; ensuring that the paper complies with the editorial requirements of your target journal.

Users of this service should, therefore, be aware that their paper is likely to be returned with queries and suggestions for further attention – however this service in not an academic or peer review.

If you would like to use this service, please contact us at and be ready to supply your manuscript, the full title and publisher of your target journals (plus the ISSN number where possible) and a copy of the editorial guidelines for the journal involved (or a URL for the online version).

Unsure if we are suitable?

Send us a small amount of words from your own work. A first time customer is welcome to send 200 words for a free sample for either proofreading, heavy editing proofreading or paraphrasing. This is not a discount and it should be sent in advance of your full work so that you can test the quality and check if the service can benefit you.

Who is checking my document?

All our proofreaders must have the following before we consider their application: Native English speaker, Graduated in UK / Ireland universities, Excellent command of English. We have strict testing criteria before allowing them to join in order to ensure that all our team is composed of the strongest proofreaders.

What is your turnaround?

Normally we need 24 hours for any document 1 – 3000 words for proofreading or heavy editing or 2500 words for paraphrasing. However, although 24 hours is the normal minimum deadline this can change in busy times according to the availability of editors. In peak months such as April, August and September we normally needed a longer turnaround time. Additionally on other days per year we may need a longer deadline from you if it is very busy. It is also advisable to leave as much time as possible. If you have a short deadline please still feel free to ask whether we can do it. We sometimes have editors who are available for short notice documents. It is best to send the document when asking to save time.

I have a very long dissertation and my deadline is too short.

You do not have to send us your whole essay all at once. Once you have finished each section, you can send us that section for proofreading. We can be proofreading this section – e.g. your introduction – while you are writing another section e.g. your method.
