When you want to present your hard work in its best light, Elite Editing is the intelligent choice. Our senior PhD-qualified editors are at peak international standard in the field. We are here to offer superior copyediting and proofreading for your work.

We take elite seriously as both our name and service level. Professional editing requires a very specific and rare combination of skills, and our rigorous editor selection process sees only a very small percentage of applicants succeed in joining our team.

  • PhD qualified, or hold tertiary qualifications in a language-rich subject area
  • Fluent in all academic style guides
  • Holders of professional industry memberships
  • Practising lecturers & tutors in diverse fields
  • Strictly native English speakers
  • Extensively published
  • Committed to rigorous quality assurance standards
  • Undergoing constant training & professional development

We are proud to introduce our stellar academic editing team. As Australia’s largest academic editing service, we have too many editors to list them all here. These are the profiles of a small selection from our large group of talented editors.
