Proofreading Jobs from Home
Part- and Full-Time
We are an English language support service for senior academics in all academic and scientific areas, including engineering, mathematics, medicine, economics, law, management, the physical and biological sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. We offer proofreading jobs from home to candidates with knowledge and experience in one or more of these fields of study.
Remote – Part-Time or Full-Time Position
We currently have proofreading jobs from home for experienced candidates who are able to proofread scholarly articles submitted to academic and scientific journals.
The internet has opened up many different opportunities for earning an income while remaining at home, and among the most interesting and rewarding of these are home-based proofreading jobs. Professionally proofreading books, articles and other documents from your home for authors who are planning to publish their work not only exposes you to new writing of various kinds, from children’s books to advanced scholarship, but also allows you to improve that writing for its authors and future readers. If you have strong language skills, care about the quality of the text that you read and possess a keen eye for detail, taking on proofreading jobs from home may be a perfect way to earn an income.
The rates of pay start at £6 ($8.50 USD) per 1,000 words, and a FREE proofreading training course is provided.
All transactions between PRS and proofreaders are carried out electronically via email: PRS sends the proofreader an article (usually in Microsoft Word) via email, and the proofreader returns the proofread version in the same manner within a set amount of time.
One of the greatest benefits of performing proofreading jobs from home is the ability to set your own schedule. Instead of working for a set number of hours each day and week, you need only take on as many proofreading jobs as you can complete in the hours that you have available for or wish to dedicate to work. You can also proofread at whatever time of day or night best suits your personal schedule and habits: when proofreading from home, you can work in the middle of the night as long as you are alert enough to complete the work to a high standard. The trick is to anticipate accurately both the time it will take you to finish each job and the time you will have available, ensuring that you are able to complete every proofreading job by the agreed deadline. If you fail to do so, the authors for whom you are proofreading will be disappointed and inconvenienced, and, if they miss their own deadlines, the consequences could be more serious. Such authors are unlikely to engage your services again and may even pass on poor reviews of your work to other authors.
Taking on proofreading jobs from home is a particularly suitable option for anyone who is unable or unwilling to go out into the workforce. Parents caring for young children will find proofreading jobs from home to be profitable and a refreshing change from childcare. Retired academics and scientists who undertake scholarly proofreading jobs from home will have the opportunity to encounter the most recent research in their disciplines and areas of specialisation as they continue to make good use of their extensive experience by helping new scholars to present groundbreaking discoveries that will advance the knowledge in their field. Those who are unable to work outside the home due to a physical disability or simply because they live in a rural area and do not have the means to travel to a workplace will discover that proofreading jobs from home provide a rewarding and challenging career that may otherwise have seemed impossible.
Whatever your reasons for choosing to pursue proofreading jobs from home as a source of income, one essential ingredient for success is to establish a space in your home in which you can work effectively without being disturbed and certain times of day when you will have the peace and quiet required for professional proofreading, which is why parents of young children often proofread in the middle of the night!
