Manuscript Editing

Maja Kos provides independent-editor referrals to Kellogg faculty and doctoral students. Depending on availability, she may also be able to provide in-house copyediting for Kellogg tenure-line faculty. As subject-matter experts, authors are responsible for technical content. Maja edits to correct errors and improve readability.

When a paper is ready for editing, Maja will add it to the queue. It is important to note that she will not be able to hold a place in line for faculty whose paper is not yet ready for copyediting.

When Maja is unable to accommodate a request for editing due to high demand, she will provide the faculty member with a list of vetted and reliable independent copyeditors. Doctoral students and visiting or clinical faculty in need of copyediting assistance may also contact Maja for the list of referrals.

To submit your manuscript for copyediting, please send it to Maja in Word or PDF format. Word files will be edited electronically. PDF files will be printed and marked up manually.

Faculty and doctoral students seeking substantive/developmental editing of their work should contact Maja for a list of referrals.
