Welcome

Welcome to Academic Editing, Hester Higton's editing business. I provide editing and proofreading services in a broad range of humanities subjects and some physical sciences. I can also undertake small-scale research projects in the humanities.

Services for publishers and academics

I am happy to work for academic publishers, university staff, and research students. As a trained academic myself, I can edit academic writing with ease, and without introducing errors through lack of basic knowledge. I am also trained to spot the flaws in a sophisticated argument, and know how to carry out further minor research without having to raise every little question with the author.

Services for businesses and museums

Apart from my academic work, I am happy to provide a range of services for businesses, from checking advertising copy for grammatical errors to writing new documents for you.

As a former museum curator, I am also able to provide a copywriting and editing service for museums mounting exhibitions, preparing new leaflets, drafting press releases, or creating websites.
