- When writers asked what to charge for copyediting journal articles, ie: correct grammar, spelling, and format information, provided by Internet Writing Workshop members may be helpful.
- Between $2 and $6 a double spaced, hard-copy page, depending on the kind of editing required and the difficulty of the manuscript.
- Typically around $2 per page for copyediting.
- By the page: $2 to $4; by the hour: rates start at $25 and go beyond.
- Even iff what’s wanted is light editing you should leave yourself some wiggle room, maybe 10 percent more, in case some pieces turn out more time consuming.
A page normally means 250 words.
Whatever you decide, have a contract.
