References are checked for free

The only completely correct references are usually prepared using bibliographic software.

Assuming you are using some version of APA style we will cross-check your references for free. This means that we will check that each reference cited in the text appears in the reference list, and each entry in the reference list is cited in the text. We will also check that the text citation and reference list entry are identical in the spelling of author names and year.

We do not make a systematic check that all your citations are complete, although if something looks wrong we will either check it, or highlight it, depending on time constraints. Similarly, we do not make a systematic check that all your citations are correctly formatted, but we will highlight any that we notice are inconsistent.

Weekend work costs more

While we can be very flexible in scheduling your project, we enjoy our weekends too. Therefore a 50% supplement (0.10 /word) applies when a manuscript is received on Friday (or later) for a Monday deadline.

Minimum charge

For very small texts there is a  minimum charge of €50 to cover administrative overheads.

Turnaround times

How long will it take? It mostly depends on how many words you have. A rough estimate is a full day per 6,000 words, plus the following morning for a final check. More important: don’t leave it until the day before your deadline to contact us. We’re all usually busy, and it’s very unlikely that we will be able to help.  On the other hand, consider booking some time in advance. If your deadline is the end of the month, let us know before, and we’ll save a couple of days for you.
