We have a simple, standard fee structure for all clients. We do not differentiate between proofreading and 'substantive editing' or 'rewriting'; ALL documents are revised to the same high standards.
If you ask us to check a document previously edited by Textcheck for a second time, such as after review by a journal, we charge ONLY for new and changed sentences. There is no charge for sentences that have not changed
New document: A document that we have not checked previously. Revised document: A document that we have checked previously.
All payments are due in US dollars.
If sending a short document, please note that there is a minimum fee of $US20.00.
Payment is due when your document has been completed.
If paying from research funds, please initiate the payment process as soon as our service is completed.
* The number of words is the wordcount of the original document in MS Word (see Tools > Wordcount). The wordcount of the reference section of manuscripts is reduced by 50%. Numbers in tables are not included in the wordcount.
** Textcheck may request a 50% payment in advance for long manuscripts from new clients. To avoid this, please provide an official e-mail address and a recommendation from an existing Textcheck client if possible.
