Academic Editing Coffee/Tea Chat

January 12th @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST

For our first coffee chat of 2023, we’ll be discussing one of the most stressful aspects of being a freelancer: setting rates. [Image description: A pile of bills of currencies from all over the world. Photo by Jason Leung on Unsplash.]

As an Academic Editor, you are an expert not only in the techniques and best practices of editing, but also in the intricacies of academic publishing, of academic integrity, of citation and reference styles—and are often a specialist in certain academic fields, as well. So, how should you set rates that reflect all the many levels of expertise you bring to the table?

We’ll discuss:

  • How to account for your expertise and experience in setting your rates
  • Whether standard rates for trade editing accurately reflect the intensity of editing academic work
  • When it makes sense to charge per hour, per word, or per project
  • Whether people will really pay what you’re asking
  • And more!
