Apibūdinimas: Hey Editors,

Here is a long-term opportunity for experienced editors (with at least two years' experience), a sharp eye to correct grammar, spelling, syntax, and sentence structure errors.


1. Must be native English Speakers

2. Two years plus editing experience

3. Conversant with APA, MLA, and Chicago style guides. The ability to follow any other customized in-house style guides is an added advantage.

4. Must be able to meet strict deadlines.

5. Experience editing ESL papers and scientific journals.

6. Will undergo a short editing test (edit a small sample of about 200 words). You can equally attach samples of your past work (mainly academic editing).

7. Must be able to commit long-term.

8. Ability to consistently deliver quality work, failure to which this contract will be terminated without prior notification and in some instances we'll be forced to refund the client; of which evidence will be provided. There's no room to revise already delivered work, so what the editor delivers first hand must be accurate and perfect.

9. Payouts are made at the beginning of every month but for smaller projects, payouts are made every week or immediately the project is completed (immediate payouts will also depend on other factors which will be discussed later).

10. Ability to use MS Word's track changes tool.

11. Good communication skills, sending updates and responding to queries on time.

12: Pay is $6 per 1000 words and this pay is revised upwards after the first milestone/project is completed; this milestone is meant to evaluate new editor capabilities before absorbing them into our team. Once satisfied with the quality of work delivered, there's a 50% increase of the above rate (this increase will apply on the second milestone/project). Therefore, if we fully absorb you into our editing team, for substantive editing you earn $12 per 1,000 words and for copy editing $8 per 1,000 words.

Note: For a start, bid for $180 for 30,000 words.

It's also important to note that if you don't address all the above requirements in your bid, your application will be turned down immediately.

Happy bidding!

Budget: $180
