I got a warm recommendation about Lex’s editorial services. My coauthors and I asked for an English translation sample for our new French book, and we weren’t disappointed; Lex’s sample was reviewed by a native English colleague who was impressed by its quality. Although Lex’s price may seem a bit high, their work is priceless!

I have been using Lex Academic for a couple of years. Louise and her team are extremely helpful and professional in revising my scientific documents. They are proactive to respond to my enquiries and always revise my document very efficiently. Especially, I have used the substantive editing service, which can help me revise the jargon and improve the manuscript in more plain or general language. From a scientific point of view, the experts in Geological and Materials Science fields not only correct my grammar mistakes but provide me with insightful feedback, which dramatically improves my manuscripts. I would be happy to use Lex Academic again in the future.

Dr Inês Hipólito (Berlin School of Mind & Brain | Co-Founder and Vice President of International Society for the Philosophy of the Sciences of the Mind) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Thank you so much for your extraordinary work. I was very pleased with the result, already submitted. Also, would like to let you know that the first paper you proofread for me (the co-authored one) was accepted and will be shortly out at Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology. So good work team! Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

I have used the services of Lex to proofread several of my papers: for example, for the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics and for the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Finance. Since I am not a native speaker, I repeatedly use unclear, incorrect, or outdated expressions in English. The editors at Lex have done a perfect job cleaning up the texts so that they are much easier to understand. I think this has helped a lot in getting the journals to accept the articles. Therefore, I recommend all non-native speakers to use the services of Lex before submitting their papers.

Dr Sepehr Ehsani (Postdoctoral fellow at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and the MIT Computer Science and AI Lab) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I’m grateful for the attention to detail and professionalism that editors at Lex Academic showed in copyediting and indexing our edited volume. The book had 22 chapters along with an index, and we wanted the multi-authored text to be doubly reviewed for clarity and consistency. This was achieved with the meticulous help of Lex Academic within an agreed-upon timeframe and the final publication benefited tremendously.

Mori Arkin, CEO Arkin Holdings (Arkin Bio Venture Partners Ltd., M. Arkin Dermatology Ltd.) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Having used their proofreading and copy-editing services on several occasions, I can say that the Lex Academic editorial team are careful, knowledgeable, and professional. I would entrust to them my work and gladly recommend them to my peers and colleagues in the life sciences.

Natasha Gukhool (Senior Rotational Pharmacist, MPharm University of Portsmouth) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

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!

Dr Anna Anguissola (Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Pisa) ★ ★★ ★ ★

Lex Academic provides all sorts of personalized options in terms of attention, feedback, and timing. They can accommodate urgent work, as well as lengthier commitments; their staff is able to engage with scholarly work in the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. As a returning client, I could not be happier.

Dr Uroš Kovač (European Research Council Advanced Grant, GLOBALSPORT) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Louise Chapman assembled an index for my monograph. The work was excellent: I had to make very few changes to it before submitting to the publisher. The index was assembled with care: Louise clearly knows what makes a good academic index. The deadline was fairly tight, but Louise delivered, even a few days earlier. I’m very happy to recommend Lex Academic to colleagues, as well as to return to it for my own work. Thank you Louise!

Professor Luciano Floridi (Cognitive Science, Yale University) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Lex Academic copyedited my new book for Oxford University Press. I was extremely impressed with the entire editorial process, which significantly shortened the time I would have needed to submit the manuscript to the publisher. The editing was excellent and delivered in a timely manner. The editor was careful and meticulous, suggesting very well-judged, editorial interventions. Lex Academic offers an outstanding service and I do not hesitate to recommend it to all researchers in need of rigorous, academic, editorial support for their publications

Dr Guy Tal (Shenkar College of Engineering and Design) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I heard once that any film is created twice: first by the director and then by the editor. Now that Louise Chapman from Lex Academic has edited four of my articles (so far), I get this! Louise does not simply correct grammar mistakes or change a word or two in a sentence; rather, she transforms your paper into something completely different—an elegant, fluent, and highly academic essay. Since I “found” her, I can’t imagine submitting an essay without running it through her editorial filter. It is not that my papers were not published in the pre-Louise era—they certainly were. But now that I have a Maserati, who wants to go back and drive a Honda? And Louise is a Maserati for life.

This is just to say how grateful I am for your thoughtful engagement with my work (just finished reading all your comments/corrections). Thank you very much! As a non-native speaker, I do struggle with writing in English, and it is so good to know that I can ask for your help with my next projects 😊

Dr Sharon Oyhanart (PhD in Dentistry, University College London) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was looking for someone to help me improve details for my college application – specially in terms of format so that it would be in line with what’s expected by UK institutions – and Louise’s vast experience and history of success in securing positions and funding made her the perfect person for the job. She promptly and meticulously assessed my documents delivering insightful feedback with the greatest professionalism in record time. My experience with Lex Academic was exceptional and I would recommend it highly to anyone in need of educational consultation, copy-editing and proofreading services.

Dr Johannes Lenhard (University of Cambridge) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I was very happy with the services: highly professional, delivered earlier than promised and with more features included than expected. Fantastic service!

Dr Anna Melnyk (Delft University of Technology) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Excellent quality copy-editing service! Lex Academic provided me with very fast and good quality copy-editing service. Their suggestions helped to improve flow in our multi-author paper and smoothen overall writing style. While going through their comments, me and my collaborators also learned about how our writing styles can be improved. This was very useful! Many thanks to Louise and to Lex Academic for supporting academic with such an excellent service!

Dr Maria Nwaigwe (University of Liverpool) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I have used the services of this company for editing of my doctoral thesis. They did it quickly – in record time and with minimum problems. In my opinion, Lex Academic is a very professional and reliable organization. Their proofreading and editing is meticulous and detailed. They are well acquainted with requirements of various academic Institutions and professional requirements of examining bodies. In addition, their interpersonal and intercommunication skills are great and I will recommend them especially for Non-native English speakers , with whom they can skilfully interact. The fees are moderate and we get good value for our money. Personnel – officers are courteous and helpful.
