BAEW assesses fees according to the services required per project. Each project has its own scope, which may vary depending on its complexity, length, deadlines, and level of editing required.

For manuscripts, please contact me via email with the following information, and I will respond within 24 hours with a fee estimate:

  • length of manuscript (250 words per page)
  • time frame of project or deadline required
  • send sample pages via email
  • journal or publisher to which manuscript will be submitted
  • for non-scientific work, identify the anticipated audience

If your project is a book, we will negotiate a contract based on a variety of needs including the following:

  • anticipated length
  • level of editing needed
  • deadlines
  • rounds of editing required

Typically, I will give a fee estimate for the entire project that will be dependent on the level of copyediting or content editing required. For a large project, we will draw up a contract or letter of agreement; a down payment will be required and partial payments will be expected during the project. Any changes in the scope of the project or project deadlines will affect the project fee.

Fees for graphic design and other publishing projects are negotiated according to the scope and complexity of the design work required. Email as much detail as possible, and we will contact you to discuss the project and obtain further details. We will then send a written fee estimate for your project.
