Asia’s leading academic editing partner

Your success in gaining research funding depends on the ability to clearly articulate a complex proposal, which is precisely where our expertise is invaluable.

When editing a research grant proposal, we pay particular attention to how the background, proposed methodology and explanation of logistics are framed by an abstract, list of objectives and description of long-term impacts that clearly and logically emphasise the potential significance of the research.

Familiarity with the Grant Application Process
Over the last 20 years we have edited thousands of research grant proposals submitted from all disciplines. Our editors specialise in polishing research grant proposals to enhance readability and hence the chance of securing the target funding.

Subject Specialist + Language Editor
Your proposal is reviewed by a subject specialist to ensure compliance with the stylistic, result-reporting and referencing conventions of your field, followed by a language specialist who focuses on general linguistic and stylistic issues to enhance the overall readability.

Payment in Arrears for Faculty Members
We value the opportunity to cooperate with you and do our very upmost to ensure you don’t miss your proposal submission deadline at this busy time of year. To smooth the process, full-time faculty members who provide us with necessary contact details are eligible to pay for editing on completion.

Editing Scope

We edit papers from all fields, with the quality of our work having earned us respect across academia. Our editing improves documents in a number of areas:

Usage and Grammar
Complying with general usage and grammar conventions
Spelling & Punctuation
Ensuring correct spelling and appropriate punctuation to clarify your meaning
Standardisation of Terms
Checking for consistent use of key terminology

Writing Style
Improving the ways you combine usage, sentence elements and sentence groups
Enhancing the ways you link associated data, findings and ideas
Refining the overall organisation of paragraphs and sections, where necessary

Types of Editing Services

Standard Editing

by far our most requested service

Editing by native English-speaking editors
A subject specialist first edits the document to ensure compliance with the conventional usage and style of your field, and makes grammatical, semantic and structural changes to improve readability
The subject specialist also comments about areas that need further improvement or clarification
A language editor then revises the document to address any issues of general language use and corrects any remaining errors

Premium Editing

requires 25% additional time:
an equivalent surcharge is applied
All aspects of Standard Editing

The editors also leave comments on the overall readability of the document
The document is returned to you for any revisions needed after our work, including changes to the text, replies to our comments and any comments of your own
The editors then work on the revised document, making any changes needed and answering all of your comments


Revisions are an integral part of the peer review publishing process. For transparency, if you revise a paper that we have previously edited we will charge the next round of editing according to the following*:

Descriptions and Revisions Made
Light – up to 25% revisions
35% of original cost
Medium – up to 50% revisions
60% of original cost
Heavy – up to 75% revisions
80% of original cost
New document – over 75% revisions
100% of original cost
*The calculation is based on the Standard Editing rate regardless of whether the original service was Standard or Premium Editing.

File Types

We can edit in all file types, including Word, LaTex and PDF. However, editing is much more efficient if we can use a Word or LaTex file. This allows us to edit electronically, rather than by hand. If we work with a PDF, then we must print the document and hand write the edits, making it much more difficult for you to incorporate the changes.

If you have the LaTex (.tex) file, we can open that in Word and edit it using the “Track Changes” function. We will be careful not to touch any of the LaTex code, meaning that you can copy the finalised document back into your LaTex editor.

Of course, if you would prefer not to send the Word or LaTex file, we can work on the printed PDF instead.

Our Confidentiality Promise

AsiaEdit guarantees the absolute confidentiality of your documents to protect your intellectual property, copyright and privacy. This same policy guarantees that your personal and payment details will remain 100% safe and confidential.

We can supply a confidentiality agreement if requested, and we are happy to sign your own documentation to provide peace of mind.
