We’re so confident that, if you aren't satisfied, we’ll provide a re-edit absolutely free.

Charlesworth Author Services has over eighty years of experience in publishing, and has helped hundreds of researchers to publication success.

“Several of my papers edited by Charlesworth Author Services have been published in high-ranked journals such as Journal of International Business Studies (Palgrave), Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis (Cambridge Core) and Journal of Money, Credit and Banking (Wiley Online). The copyeditors not only edit the text but carefully explain the rationale. I have improved my writing as a result.”

Louis Nguyen

Kings College London

"Charlesworth Author Services provides fast, thorough and affordable proofreading and editing services, especially for non-native English speakers. No further editing was required for all my articles edited by Charlesworth, accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals such as International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (MDPI) and Frontiers in Psychology."

Prof. Antonella Granieri

University of Turin

"Despite the fact that I have authored six management books and more than 130 academic papers in English, I use their editing services. Not necessarily because I am not a native English speaker and writer, but because their service is much more than just correcting my English. Charlesworth editors are actually 'partners in writing,' as they not only review my language and style but also the content."

Dr André de Waal

HPO Centre

"Very thoughtful editing and very professional service. The editors edit very responsibly, and so, the edited manuscripts are very satisfactory."

Jianjian Dong

Anhui University of Chinese Medicine

"It was easy to contact and communicate with them. Also, if needed, you can ask for the same editor as earlier for additional editing of your paper."

Kangcheng Liu

Central South University

"They have a variety of author services to choose from. Also, there is an office in China, and so, the communication becomes convenient."

Who are Charlesworth Author Services?

We understand the importance of your research and its publication. At Charlesworth Author Services, we offer a variety of packages for academic authors in order to improve the quality, clarity and readability of your written English - thus maximising your publication success.

Unlike most academic author and editing services, our editors always have PhDs or equivalents in your chosen disciplines, with native-level English and a first-hand understanding of the publication process. As a result, our editors understand your subject’s technical language and can ensure it is edited properly with this in mind, keeping it clear, concise and scientifically accurate.

This not only helps academics get published, but helps to streamline the academic publication process by improving the quality of submissions editors and publishers receive. We’re recommended by some of the world’s top scientific publications and institutions, including The Royal Society, The American Mathematical Society, The Royal Society of Chemistry and more - and are proud members of the Committee on Publication Ethics.
