Elite Editing is Australia’s largest and most established academic editing service, specialising in the editing and proofreading of academic and creative books and reviews. We offer an unparalleled service to assist writers in preparing manuscripts for publishing or for submission for review; we also offer expert editing and proofreading for reviews, theses, essays and journal articles. Our editors are PhD-qualified and experienced in developing manuscripts for publication and we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on our work.
Publishing companies are notorious for hiring freelance editors who often cut corners when editing manuscripts, meaning that, sadly, many books are published today with unnecessary errors. Don’t let your book be one of them. Use Elite Editing’s editing or proofreading services for your manuscript to make certain that your book is the best it can be before submission to the publisher. Whatever the stage of your manuscript, your editor will work with you to bring it to the highest standard, ensuring not only faultless English, but also logical flow and organisation of ideas. We are adept at improving your work without compromising the integrity or originality of your argument or altering your unique voice.
Academic and writing careers increasingly depend on the quality of publications: not only on the depth of your research, but also on the clarity of writing in communicating that research. Trust Elite Editing to give your work its very best chance of success.
No matter what the subject of your book or review, Elite Editing will ensure it is the best it can be, preparing your manuscript or review for acceptance, publication and reception by your target audience.
We employ PhD-qualified editors from all disciplines, so whatever your topic, you can be sure that your manuscript will be edited by an expert in your field. Some of our areas of specialty are the sciences, including sports science, the biosciences, geography, physics, chemistry, mathematics and environmental science; the humanities, including literature, linguistics, history, philosophy, music and the fine arts; education; medicine, dentistry and pharmacology; architecture and design; business and economics; engineering and information technology; law; and the veterinary and agricultural sciences. We also have experienced editors of biographies and autobiographies.
Elite editing will edit your manuscript to guarantee perfect grammar, spelling and punctuation throughout, as well as absolute consistency in style, language, tone and key terms. We will eliminate repetition, redundancy and ambiguity, and identify flawed or weak arguments and unsubstantiated assertions. We are adept at checking arguments for consistency and coherency and making sure that ideas are expressed in the clearest possible way.
We will format your manuscript to the specifications of your publisher, or to your preferred specifications, creating a table of contents and lists of figures and tables, where appropriate, and ensuring that all tables and figures fit within the margins of the document. We will configure your in-text citations and reference list in a style of your choosing, cross-checking every reference and alerting you to any discrepancies or missing information, to ensure that your document is error free.
We love editing fiction books and we go to great lengths to make certain that the author’s voice is retained. When editing fiction, we guarantee flawless grammar, while taking care to ensure that your carefully constructed creative expression remains intact. We work with you to produce a coherent and cohesive text, with harmonious tone and style. We make no major changes to your work, but comment extensively, based on our years of industry experience, with suggestions that you, as the author, can decide to take or leave. In this way, you can be sure that the finished product is all your own work.
We are experienced editors of book reviews for academic journals, magazines and newspapers. We will polish your review to professional standards, ensuring clarity of expression, coherency of argument and, of course, faultless grammar, punctuation, spelling and fluency of style.
If you feel that your book or review requires only the lightest possible touch to make it shine, Elite Editing offers a proofreading service at a reduced rate. While we do not recommend this service to non-native English speakers, we are always happy to assess your manuscript or review and recommend the appropriate service.

I had my 70,000-word PhD thesis edited promptly and to an exceptional standard by Elite Editing. It sped up my completion date and helped me finish on time, which is the most important thing. The service was fantastic with excellent communication; so I was informed at each stage of the process. I would recommend Elite Editing to everyone, especially those who are close to completing their thesis.
