    Fees: Editing of English

    The standard rates are as follows:
    Standard editing
    ---£4.45 per 100 words (includes first editing only)

    Intensive editing
    ---£ 6.65 per 100 words (includes first editing, plus second editing @ £2.20 per 100 words or £44.50 per hour, whichever is cheaper for you)

    Superintensive editing
    ---£ 6.65 per 100 words plus £44.50 for every extra hour

    As a rule of thumb, in order to see how much our fees are in US Dollars, multiply the above values by 1.6.

    It is not possible to specify in advance what kind of editing your paper will need. However, we will charge you at the lowest level that we can, consistent with the goal of bringing the English in your paper to a publishable standard. Please note that in most cases, intensive editing is required. Please also note that if your paper requires less time than we would expect for quality control, we will only charge you for the time we spend, at a rate of £44.50 per hour.


    There is no set fee for checking. Checking will incur a fee that is in accordance with the amount of effort involved, charged at £44.50 per hour with a minimum charge of £25. Usually, the fee will increase in relation to the amount of unclarity that the original text contained.

    Fees: Assessment of logic and flow of argument

    This service is charged at a standard rate of £107 per hour

    Fees: Administration

    There is a standard administration fee per paper of £16.

    This fee covers the cost of choosing, contacting, and sending your paper out to an editor, communicating with authors when necessary, keeping records associated with your paper, creating and sending out invoices and receipts, and processing payments. We do not make any profit from this fee. We charge it separately because we want it to be the same for each paper, whereas if we included it in the fees for editing, authors who send short papers would pay little whereas authors who send long papers would pay a lot, but the amount of administration needed is about the same for each paper.


    We will provide certification that Editing for Business has edited your paper for a standard fee of £12.


    We accept payment as follows:
    credit card: UK Pounds Sterling
    bank-to-bank transfer: UK Pounds Sterling

    Instructions for payment will be sent by e-mail at the same time as we return the revised version and an invoice.

    We expect to receive payment by personal credit card and personal bank transfer within 7-10 days and payment by a university within 30 days.

    The amount that appears in the EFB bank account must be the full amount that is shown on the invoice. Please notify us by e-mail upon transfer.
