“The Inclusive National Higher Education Forum (INHEF) is delighted to recommend Dr Rachel Finnegan and the services provided by Irish Academic Editing. Dr Finnegan’s proofreading and light copy-editing service is second to none. INHEF’s first official report was brought to an exceptional standard of coherence through Dr Finnegan’s service. We look forward to working with Irish Academic Editing again in the near future.”

Mr Des Aston, Chair of INHEF

"Rachel is an exceptional editor: astute, thorough and utterly reliable. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

Fiona Dunne, Managing Editor, Irish Academic Press and Merrion Press

"I have worked with Rachel for several years on various projects and highly recommend her as both proofreader and editor. Her attention to detail and appreciation of consistency and appropriate voice have been invaluable."

Jennie Harborth, Clean Copy – Proofreading, Editing and Publishing

“I would like to express my highest esteem for Dr Rachel Finnegan’s work and professionalism. I admit, I was a little bit worried that the complexity of the subject may constitute an obstacle even for a very experienced editor, but certainly this was not the case with Dr Finnegan. I am very impressed and would highly recommend her services."

Dr Adam Kucharski

"Rachel Finnegan has always delivered a great product back to me in a timely and cost-effective manner. I am impressed with Rachel's experience by professionally editing my papers and delivering them well before my requested deadline. I strongly recommend Rachel Finnegan to scholars working in the International Relations and Political Science field."

Dr Silvia Menegazzi, LUISS Guido Carli University, Rome

"As a non-native English writer, I was looking for a proofreader who could improve my sentences but without changing my style too much either. After trying half-a-dozen, I was very glad to find Rachel: she understands where I’m going with my texts, her edits are spot-on, and she balances very well these two aspects of correcting while still leaving the tone of my own voice perceptible. A reliable partner."

Clement, PhD, Switzerland

"I had the pleasure of working with Rachel at Irish Academic Editing recently. My article had to be changed from Harvard referencing to Chicago for publishing purposes. The process was both swift and precise with the work returned to me ahead of time. I will be using Rachel’s services in the future."

Adrian Callinan, MSc

“I would highly recommend Rachel for the quality and efficiency of her work. Rachel proofread and edited my book The Enterprising Community. I was amazed and thrilled with her professionalism and attention to detail. Her regular feedback and advice on improving every aspect of the content of the book was an outstanding feature of her work.”

Dr Senan Cooke, Lecturer, Dublin City University (DCU)

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Rachel Finnegan, I was highly impressed by the detailed comments and checking of facts corresponding to text, her attention to detail was excellent. She was flexible, efficient and worked to a very tight deadline. I will without doubt employ her expertise again, she was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her.”

Sarah O’Neill, Deputy Arts Officer, Fingal County Council

“We highly recommend Rachel Finnegan for proofreading and editing work. She has been our proofreader for several years and was also a tutor on our accredited proofreading course. She is highly competent, and spots errors that most other proofreaders miss. And she is friendly, reliable and great to work with.”

Cleland Thom, Founding Director, College of Media and Publishing, UK

“Rachel has completed several projects for me. I’ve no hesitation in recommending her to you. Her work is high quality. She’s fast, flexible, helpful and can take initiative when needed. Rachel met some tight deadlines ahead of schedule. I found her eminently trustworthy in all my dealings with her.”
