New service: Reference checking and formatting

It’s been a while since I posted! I have been working on developing my business, taking a course with fantastic coach Malini Devadas of Edit Boost. I have been asked to present at the #CIEP2020 online conference of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, taking place November 2–4, 2020. And I have become the Social Media Coordinator for SENSE the Society, on whose behalf I now post on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, with the help of others.

After what feels like a year of me just working, working, working, I am once again actively developing my skills and thinking about the direction in which I would like to take my business.

It is with this in mind that I have decided to offer a new service: reference checking and formatting. Clients who want to save time, who seek to preserve their energy to focus on the content of what they are writing, or who are held back from submitting their manuscript because they dread dealing with the references and citations can now hire me to fix their references and bibliography.

I will not only ensure that all required elements are present in their reference list entries but also consult each reference online to check that all details are complete and correct, including the author name and the title. I then present them with a clean list in the required citation style.

I am super excited about this new service and have decided to offer it at an introductory rate of 1 euro per reference, plus VAT if applicable. More information can be found on my services and rates page.
