We have been undertaking academic writing, editing and proofreading for over twenty years with a variety of stakeholders and academic institutions, including the University of Tasmania, Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland, and the University of Melbourne.

Academic writing refers to the forms of expository and argumentative prose used by university students, faculty, and researchers to convey a body of information about a particular subject.  

  • Academic writing follows well-established conventions of citing and referencing, according to each discipline.
  • Unlike creative writing, academic writing in English is linear, and its objective is to inform.
  • Characteristics of academic writing include a formal tone, use of the third-person rather than first-person perspective (usually), a clear focus on the research problem under investigation, and precise word choice.

Academic research editing ensures the non-fictional information being presented is true and accurate.

  • We will verify the information in the text or correct any erroneous statements or claims. 
  • We are concerned only with the validity of the information and will not typically critique other aspects of the material.
