Academic Text Revision and Editing Service
The service is for EUI academics who are not PhD or LL.M. researchers. Materials suitable for revision include articles, conference papers, working papers, etc..
Max Weber Fellows should follow the procedure laid out under Working Paper on the MWP pages.
All other EUI Fellows and academics should contact their respective administrative coordinator.
The required working hours for the revision and editing of a text depend not only on the length of the text but also on the types and numbers of errors, text ambiguities etc. Therefore the author of the paper and the text editor must agree on the expectations and the estimate of working hours before work begins.
Procedure for submitting a text
1. Contact the corrector on the list (following the ranking) for an estimate of the hours needed for them 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.
English text revisers and editors
Following an Open Call for tender for the provision of English text revision and editing for academic purposes the following framework contracts have been allocated to:
1. Alyson Price
2. David Barnes
3. Lisa Robbins
Only for thesis corrections.
A thesis corrector can only be contracted for other editing jobs if there is a good justification for not using the ‘official’ editors. In such cases a SAR containing the justification (i.e. unavailability of the ‘official’ editors, special expertise …) should be submitted to the Director of the Academic Service submitted via SAR.
Any other external correctors
Only under exceptional circumstances and if approved by the Director of the Academic Service via SAR.
