Specific projects

I have been working as a professional academic editor for the past three years alongside Dr Lines at Capstone Editing. I completed the Capstone Editing Certificate in Academic Editing in 2015. I have experience editing academic documents from several fields. My editing follows the Australian Standards of Editing Practice and the IPEd ‘Guidelines for Editing Research Theses’. I am primarily an academic and technical editor, specialising in formatting and referencing—I am familiar with all referencing styles, especially Harvard, APA and AGLC, and I can follow any specific formatting styles.
