Your Alternative Editor

(sintesi italiana in fondo alla pagina)

Hi, I’m a freelance academic proofreader, working mostly with Italian academics but in an English-language context. I always aim to work in good harmony and dialogue with my clients, offering affordable rates for precarious academics. This, along with my experience – both as an author and an editor – in HE, makes me a good alternative to the more formal proofreading services out there.

I am an alumni of Utrecht University (Netherlands) and the University of Warwick (UK), and a former British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Glasgow (UK). I have several years of experience in academic publishing and editing, including as the managing editor of the SAGE journal of Memory Studies. I have peer reviewed for academic journals and publishing houses both in Italy and the UK. In the past I have attended a Proofreading and Copy editing course (Publishing Scotland), and I’ve completed an online Proofreading and Editing course with distinction (College of Media and Publishing).

Check out my website for more information (in Italian) about my academic background and expertise, services and rates. On the last two pages (in English) you’ll find some resources and articles about HE, as well as a few relaxing snapshots from my editing retreat.

Ciao! Mi chiamo Andrea e sono una correttrice di bozze. Grazie alla mia esperienza pluriennale nel campo della pubblicazione e dell’editoria anglosassone posso offrire un servizio economico ed “alternativo” (rispetto ai servizi professionali) di correzioni di bozze. Sono anche disponibile per traduzioni (unicamente verso l’inglese). Le mie specializzazioni sono la storia delle donne, gli studi di genere e di memoria (culturale e collettiva), e la storia italiana moderna. Per ulteriori informazioni sulle mie competenze, sul servizio che offro e sulle mie tariffe, visitate le altre pagine del mio sito.
