Change of address 11 July 2013

I've moved! You can find my new address and phone number on the Contact page.

Email address alteration 20 June 2013

One of my email addresses (the very old NTL World address: i.kingston@ntlworld.com) will shortly cease to function. If that is still lingering in your address book please switch to ian@iankingston.com. Thanks!

Twenty-first century publishing

I provide a full editorial and typesetting service to publishers of books and journals, including any or all of the following:

  • Copy-editing
  • Rewriting
  • Proofreading
  • Indexing
  • Typesetting
  • e-books (Kindle etc.)
  • Illustration
  • Author liaison

I work on books, journals and electronic media, primarily in science and medicine, but also in a number of other subjects.

The left-hand column contains a quick summary of what I offer and the tools that I use. There is more information about these on the individual pages of the site, so please explore if you’re interested in what I can do for you.

Thirty years’ experience

I was one of the very first freelance editors to work primarily on-screen and my experience in this field extends back into the 1980s, when I worked on electronic projects at Oxford University Press. I also have a thorough grounding in traditional methods, so whatever your needs I can meet them.

I was also among the first freelance editors to join the Internet revolution, and I try to stay current with new technologies as they develop. As a consequence I’m able to take on all manner of quirky jobs, such as fixing troublesome PDF files or converting strange graphics files, saving you time and money and keeping your authors happy!

Let’s talk!

Whatever your project, you can call me or write to discuss it. I don’t subcontract anything, so you can be assured that your job always has my complete attention.
