Specific projects

I am a tertiary-trained academic writing teacher with 18 years’ experience in editing academic journal articles, papers and PhD theses in Australia and the UK, as well as in editing documents written by administrators within Australian federal and state governments. The confidentiality that is integral to my editor-client relationships precludes my specifying individuals or projects, with the exception of the following:

Spaaij, R., Jeanes, R., Magee, J., & Ebooks Corporation (2014). Sport and social exclusion in global society. New York, NY: Routledge.

Spaaij, R. (2012). Understanding lone wolf terrorism: Global patterns, motivations and prevention. Springer: Netherlands.

I would be pleased to hear from you at to discuss your editing needs. An information brief outlining my confidentiality and quality assurances, editing process, background and referees will then be forwarded to you for your consideration.
