Hello there. Do take a seat.

 

 


 

How's the patient?

Whether you think there’s nothing wrong with your beloved manuscript or you’re well aware of its many infirmities, most academic writing could do with a health check – a second opinion to see that it’s consistent, clear and correct.
 
As it goes to proof stage, your work will need to be of a certain standard – in the pink rather than peaky. Ideally, it could do with a clean bill of health. And that’s where DocEditor can help.

The DocEditor

The Doc EditorHello there. I'm Cathy Tingle and, as my title suggests, I’m a doctor (of English) and an editor. I have copy-edited more than 80 non-fiction books for Palgrave, Routledge and others, and I hope to be editing until I retire.

Testimonials

I am so grateful to Cathy for editing a book and an academic article for me. She is so efficient and thorough, it’s startling! When you think you’ve covered everything, Cathy reads the manuscript closely and attentively and picks up those details you have missed that require correction. Yet she remains respectful of the document, so you feel supported and helped. That’s a rare skill.
