Erudite Scribe Writing Editing and Publishing


Erudite Scribe is a Writing Editing and Publishing business providing services to academic and professional authors.  We are skilled at thesis editing, especially at assisting authors for whom English is a second language.  We offer ESL (English as a Second Language) editing services to scholarly and scientific standards. We edit master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral theses and dissertations.  Copy editing is provided at $50-$60 per hour, structural editing at $60-$80 per hour and complex scientific and technical editing at $70-$90 per hour.

We follow on from thesis editing to successful examination with provision of a service translating research theses and dissertations in to monographs publishable as books.  We can work towards publication of doctoral theses as monographs within a year of successful examination. We offer electronic publication as well as paper publication to academic authors who are able to access funding to sustain such projects.  We can also enter into partnerships to publish and distribute electronic textbooks. Towards this end, we work in collaborataion with eContent Management. These services are available to authors who can fund the production costs of 120 or more copies.  The average cost to the author for production of a book from a manuscript of 60000 to 80000 words is approximately $5000.  Technical complexity, colour plates, specialised diagrams and other design issues may add to that cost, as may language and structural editing issues, as will printing, freight  and distribution of additonal copies. Erudite Scribe can provide cost estimates, provide the thesis editing and subsequent structural editing, and manage the provision of all of these services as a seamless, efficient one-stop project shop.

Academic life can be busy and fraught with conflicting demands from undergraduate students, academic advisors, research supervisors, administrators, senior faculty members and peer researchers.  These demands can build to impossible levels at which personal life, teaching and research may suffer.  The pressure to publish mounts, and the time for each and all of these vital activities seems to shrink daily by immeasurable but cumulative fractions.  Consult Erudite Scribe today to discuss who we can contribute to easing your burden and enhancing your chances of success in examination, teaching and publication.
