Scientific Proofreading

We are purveyors of world-class scientific proofreading. Our accurate and meticulous proofreading promises clear and fault-free prose. Our academic proofreading is provided by expert editors with PhDs in the relevant areas of research.

Our scientific proofreading focuses on making your work error-free. As well as infelicities in grammar, punctuation, and referencing, we catch all misspellings and typographical errors. We also flag up all misused, unclear, or unidiomatic phrases and expressions, proffering suggestions of our own where necessary. Through our careful interventions, we can elevate the scholarly register of any manuscript, helping to engage your reader as effectively as possible with your ideas, whether you are working in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics. We also relish editing interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research.

We moreover render your work consistent with regard to format. To this end, we are conversant with the dominant citation styles for all STEM subjects (including ACS, AIP, AMA, APA, ASA, Chicago, CSE, Harvard, ICMJE, and IEEE). Furthermore, we readily familiarise ourselves with the peculiarities required by different university faculties for the sake of PhD submission. Just let us know your referencing style and spelling conventions (e.g., American or British English) and we can begin transforming your manuscript into flawless prose.

All changes to your work are logged through Microsoft Word’s Track Changes facility. This enables you to keep tabs on our interventions, giving you autonomy over the final draft of your work. All proofreads are subsequently finished by our professional Quality Controller from the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, who gives the seal of approval to all work, thereby assuring eager, returning clients.

🇫🇷 We also offer French proofreading for francophone scholars. 🇫🇷

We can provide file conversion services and are able to edit LaTeX documents in Overleaf and PDF.


Scientific proofreading is for those clients who need the peace of mind of knowing that their manuscript is absolutely fault-free.

“I was extremely impressed and happy with the outstanding proof-reading service at Lex Academic. The editing I received was excellent, meticulous, and delivered in a very timely manner. Lex Academic offered well thought out interventions, grammar adjustments and overall made my Master’s thesis more concise and professional. It has been a pleasure to work with Louise and I would strongly recommend Lex Academic to all my colleagues, and I look forward to working with them in the future!”
