List of Freelance Editors -- not an approved list, not vetted, not researched, buyer beware. 

Just a List that has grown over the years. 

MSA DOES NOT PAY FOR THIS. We do not guarantee that a person or service found 

on this list will work well. You can use any English editor you find through 

other sources! Using an editor does not guarantee a successful peer review. 

Negotiate all contracts/fees/payment and work schedule before starting work, 

directly with the freelance editor. Authors should feel absolutely free to ask 

for resumes/references/samples. We add additional editors/services if they request -- 

we do not approve or disapprove any claims they make. Do your research. 

This is just a list.
