Professor Emerita Liv Helene Willumsen
University of Tromsø – The Arctic University of Norway
Marieke Krijnen was the language editor of my book The Voices of Women in Witchcraft Trials: Northern Europe (Abingdon: Routledge, 2022), which is a book on historical witchcraft trials. This was a very good co-operation. She contributed with important editorial work, clarifying the content of sentences and phrases. She suggested alternative words and formulations where necessary, and has an ability to emphasize the main content of a paragraph. She easily gets hold of new knowledge. She is quick in answering questions and keeps the deadlines perfectly. I strongly recommend Marieke Krijnen as language editor.
Dr. Dalila Ghodbane
Architect, Associate researcher, CEDEJ (Centre d’études et de documentation économiques, juridiques et sociales), Cairo, Egypt
I recommend the services of Marieke Krijnen without any reserve. She edited my doctoral thesis (in architecture), and reading her reviews and suggestions encouraged me and helped me keep the pace of the writing. She is very meticulous, and I could see her true motivation to make my argumentation clearer. With Marieke Krijnen, you will have the best possible support in your writing project. Finally, the communication between us was always very smooth, which made my experience of working with Marieke a real pleasure. I would definitely do it again.
Production Editor, World Scientific Europe
Marieke is professional and a delight to work with. Her attention to detail, editorial acumen, and reliability have made her an invaluable asset to our imprint. The notes returned on manuscripts are thorough and clearly thought out in response to the text. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Prof. Daniel Bertrand Monk
Marieke is a consummate professional. She knows all aspects of academic publishing and expedites careful copy-editing beautifully. She takes the most difficult part of shepherding a project to publication and makes it painless. I cannot imagine doing a large editorial project without her. Or a small one.
Dr. Eline Scheerlinck
Marieke’s proofreading of my article was impeccable. Grammar, punctuation, style guide: she paid attention to every detail. As a result, I feel very confident now about submitting my article for print. She is very correct and delivered before the deadline. Her commenting and correcting style is clear. Overall, working with her is a joy, and I am sure this will not have been the last time.
PhD candidate, University of Amsterdam
Marieke did an excellent job proofreading my PhD dissertation. I contacted her when I was already pressed for time, and she did not only agree to do it on short notice, but she even beat the deadline! What I particularly liked was that communication with Marieke was very pleasant, efficient and easy. She was proactive in making suggestions, but always checked in with me. I really enjoyed working with her and I would do it again any time.
Authors of “Microcultures”
Marieke did a phenomenal job with editing for our book, Microcultures. She was very professional and easy to work with. She delivered on time, on budget, and was very thorough. I’d highly recommend working with her.
Dr. Boris Verbrugge
Senior Researcher, KU Leuven
Extremely professional and incredible value-for-money
Marieke edited an article that I co-authored with a Tanzanian PhD-student. As an ex-colleague, I knew that Marieke would deliver, but the result was even better than expected. Aside from the foolproof language editing, she made clear efforts to understand the message that the author wanted to bring across, and she made some very useful suggestions as to how the article can be improved further. It was at least partly thanks to her professional editing services that the article was accepted without major revisions.
Dr. Andrea Núñez Casal
Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom
Marieke proofread and formatted my doctoral dissertation. I could not be more satisfied with the result. She was very conscious about and sensitive to the nature and challenges of my work and writing, involving embodied experiences of health and disease. She is incredibly accurate, reliable, responsible and transparent, all essential qualities in a editor, and especially so for early-career researchers, an uncertain stage in which the pressures of authorship and publishing are at its highest. In addition, working with Marieke turned the weeks before the official submission of my PhD into a pleasurable experience! I highly recommend her editorial services.
Prof. Hagar Kotef
Senior Lecturer, SOAS University of London, United Kingdom
Marieke worked with me on a book manuscript, and was a thorough, attentive, and very engaged editor. She worked incredibly efficiently, even though the text was quite dense theoretically. She did a fantastic work in making it clean, correct, and coherent – both in technical terms (style of references, redundancies, typos), but also in terms of the argument. Her work is truly excellent and I highly recommend her as an editor.
Dr. Lyna Comaty
PhD and author
Working with Marieke was a pleasure. She helped me turn my 300-page PhD dissertation into an interesting monograph publication. She quickly grasped the subject and had a very coherent proposal. I loved how she guided me in her comments and changes, always checking whether the changes were done and whether they made sense. Work was always submitted on time and she was always an email away when I had a question. She is a professional editor, I definitely recommend her.
Dr. M. Brand
I highly recommend the work of Dr. Marieke Krijnen. She read a rather lengthy document in a short time, was always quick to respond to my emails, and came up with excellent corrections and suggestions. I am happy with the outcome and would certainly trust her again with my work-in-progress!
Vice-President, Arab Center for Architecture, Beirut, Lebanon; coordinator of the Lebanese pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale, Italy
We were in urgent need of a copy editor for the Lebanese Pavilion’s catalogue at the Biennale Architettura 2018 and I asked Marieke if she could help. Even though she was involved in other works, she managed to deliver an excellent work in a record time. I think she’s one of the best choices we made for this project. And I highly recommend her for her efficiency, accuracy and availability. Thank you again Marieke.
UR (Urban Research), the imprint of Terreform
New York, United States
With her background in urban issues and editorial acumen, Marieke proofed our manuscript meticulously in a matter of days. Through her notes, we sensed that she was thinking along with our text, a rare and especially helpful trait. Needless to say, we will be relying on her services whenever possible in the future.
Dr. Miriam Stock
Juniorprof. University of Education Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany
Marieke is a great editor and a very pleasant and reliable person to work with. I had to review an article and needed some language editing. Marieke did a very quick, highly accurate and also creative editing of my article that improved the quality tremendously.
PhD-candidate, Institute of Geography, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany
I can highly recommend Marieke if you are looking for a professional editor who is reliable and very accurate. She responds to e-mails immediately and edited an article at very short notice. Thanks to her expertise in the Middle East, she also comments on content-related formulations. I agreed to all of her suggestions for changes which is the best proof for the high quality of her work.
Michela De Giacometti
PhD candidate, School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences, Paris, France
I had to submit an academic article and asked Marieke for editing and review. Marieke is very professional and competent. Her work was very accurate. Not only is she proficient, but her comments made my work improved. She is also very efficient: she works quickly and reacts rapidly to emails. Marieke is totally trustworthy! I recommend her!
