Emma Hoyle

Physical sciences editor & proofreader

Personal, professional editing and proofreading for scholars, researchers and academics.

Your work, in my expert hands. Since 2004.

Improve your written English

As a professional editor and proofreader of over 16 years, and trained by the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) as an Advanced Professional Member, it’s fair to say I know how to help you get the best out of your scholarly work, be it clarity, grammar or spelling.

Checked by a qualified physicist

My grounding in science as a Master of Physics means that you get all my technical understanding gained from checking thousands of physical sciences research articles, from physics to economics.

Don’t just take my word for it. As well as helping academic authors one-on-one (you can see some of their comments below), I have copyedited for the peer-reviewed journals Nature Astronomy and Nature Physics, among others.

Personal service

Many scholars, researchers and academics come back to me again and again. Because when you hire me, you get me. This means I know exactly what your needs are, every time.

I can tailor my editing to you, and I am always happy to answer any questions you might have afterwards.

Not fluent in English?

If you lack confidence in your English, don’t worry. I am here to help you.

I have worked with hundreds of academic authors who are multilingual or use English as a second language. I feel strongly that a less than perfect understanding of English should not prevent good research from being published.

Meet Emma

Hello! If you have never used a professional editor or proofreader before, don’t worry. Many of my clients have returned to me time and again to help them with their work through the years.

I also help new writers all the time too.

Whether you want editing or proofreading in the physical sciences, from physics to economics and (almost) everything in between, I will walk you through every step of the (simple) process, and carefully work to your particular needs.

If you have written a physical sciences article, you might:

•  have written your paper in Word, LaTeX or Overleaf

•  have a target journal in mind

•  want tables, figures, references, appendices included/excluded in the edit or proofread

Or you might have written a different project, such as a physical sciences report or research proposal, with a target audience and set style.

Whatever form your writing takes, your goal is the same – you want it checked with care by a professional editor and proofreader who is also knowledgeable in the field, before you send it for publication.

I can do all this for you without ever changing your unique author’s ‘voice’.

I know retaining your intended meaning is of paramount importance, and not just in research papers.


Emma is very professional. Always accurate and punctual in delivering. I have used her services many times and it has always been a pleasure to work with her. I strongly recommend her.

Easy to work with

I had other written work edited before, but never had an article purposefully proof-read for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. Ms Hoyle did a very thorough job and was very easy to communicate with.

Important that Emma is a physicist

Fantastic and thorough job, excellent proofreading quality and very fast. The most important for me is that Emma is a physicist, this is priceless when it comes to understand and correct scientific or engineering publication and jargon. Thank you very much, I will definitely use your service again.
