Academic Text Revision and Editing Service

The service is intended to get articles, conference papers, working papers etc. revised. The required working hours for the revision and editing of a text depends not only on the length of the text but also on the types and numbers of errors, text ambiguities etc. Therefore a dialogue between author and language editor regarding the expectations and the estimate of working hours is highly important.

 

All EUI fellows should get in contact with their respective administrative coordinator.
 

Procedure for submitting a text


1. Contact the corrector on the list (following the ranking) to check how many hours would be needed for her/him to do the job.

2. Contact the Language Centre Assistant to check if the required number of hours is still available within the respective framework contract.

3. Open a financial commitment with the Financial Management of your Unit, attaching the approval from the Language Centre Assistant.

4. Confirm the job to the corrector.
