I can help you improve the clarity and consistency of your language, increasing your chances of publication. I work with journal articles, conference papers, books/book chapters and grant applications. I also offer a student service for postgraduates who need a proofreader for their doctoral thesis or master's dissertation.

I understand how important it is to be published in peer-reviewed journals and to obtain research grants. Getting your submission into the best possible shape is key if you are to obtain research funding and publish in high-quality journals.

I only work in areas in which I have some knowledge. These include mathematics (including mathematical biology), physics, engineering, mathematical computing, and classical music.

I work with the following types of written material: 

  • research papers
  • articles
  • books/book chapters
  • conference papers
  • grant proposals
  • websites
  • blogs
  • theses and dissertations


Eleanor provided the final copy editing services for my book "Quantum Computing for Programmers", which freely intermixes text, tables, sizable mathematics, circuit diagrams, and programming code snippets. Despite the fact that the book has been reviewed before by many of my colleagues and several paid contractors, Eleanor substantially improved all areas, including in the mathematical formulation and typesetting, grammar and spelling issues, and the references and index. Eleanor by far exceeded my expectations. Without hesitation and with great enthusiasm I recommend Eleanor. She is the best!

Eleanor Bolton was the copy editor of my mathematics textbook. Not only did she correct typos in the text but also typos in the math and LaTeX coding. She made sure that the book conformed to the publisher's style in fonts, headings, footnotes, citations, figures, tables, and such. Several times she encouraged me to make a particular mathematical argument more clear, for which I am grateful. Her work was of course thorough and timely. I could not have had a better copy editor.

Martin Buntinas

Author, Classical and Discrete Functional Analysis with Measure Theory

Eleanor provided us with extensive help, over many sessions, during the revision process of our book. It was a pleasure interacting with her. We are really grateful for her patience and attention to detail. In addition, along the way she taught us some subtleties of the English language that we were not aware of!

Carlo Heissenberg and Augusto Sagnotti

Authors, Classical and Quantum Statistical Physics: Fundamentals and Advanced Topics

Eleanor edited and proofread my book on quantum mechanics, and she did a fantastic job. Having a PhD in mathematics, she has a clear understanding of the subtleties of scientific texts, and she improved every single aspect of my book. She is careful, incisive, respectful, and incredibly efficient. I highly recommend her.

Marcos Marino

Author, Advanced Topics in Quantum Mechanics

Not only did Eleanor fix my grammar, she helped me write what I was trying to say more effectively. I think that the manuscript has really been enhanced from its previous state. Eleanor really helped me clarify my mathematical statements too. I think that, in contrast to people I've worked with before, she has an appreciation for the subtleties of writing mathematical statements. It was also really easy to go page by page through the document. The comments were really detailed, but not overly so – I appreciated the exposition.

Travis Cuvelier

Graduate Research Assistant, University of Texas

Eleanor helped me edit the final copy of my doctoral thesis through her careful proofreading. She caught many grammatical and typographical errors in addition to identifying important discrepancies in content. She completed her work quickly and thoroughly, and I highly recommend her.
