An academic copy editor specializing in editing journal article submissions, dissertations, grad school and job application materials, and other academic documents, I’ve been a full-time editor for 4 1/2 years now. (I’m also a social psychologist and published researcher, currently conducting research on cultural influences on the COVID pandemic.) Samples of clients’ reviews of my work:
“Dr. Melton’s editing was phenomenal. The attention to detail was beyond what I had anticipated. Thank you so very much for your assistance with my dissertation!”
“I usually don’t rate or leave reviews but such an excellent editor! Really tries to work with you rather than leaving some vague comments like ‘what does this mean? I don’t understand this.’ Highly recommend!”
“Really satisfied! Available, a real concern about doing the best corrections, and helpful comments about the research content. I highly recommend Jeff!”
“Great edits! Jeff kept the integrity of my work while making revisions. I like how helpful he was with APA formatting, as well. Thank you!”
I am the co-founder and senior editor of Ocean Editors. Our company does standard editing as well as advanced manuscript review and scientific consultation with subject matter experts. Let us help you make your work the very best it can be!
