A range of service levels for grant applications or scientific papers are outlined below. These are charged on a 'per word' basis, ranging from £0.03 per word (approximately € 0.04 or US$ 0.05). Before taking on your job, I will provide an exact quotation for the total cost. To do this, I will need to see the document (in complete confidentiality) as the appropriate level will depend on the level of work required. My copy of the document will be deleted immediately if you decide not to proceed, or deleted upon successful completion of the work.

Please get in touch if you have other requirements as these can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
