Your Brain is Secretly Hard-wired to Ignore Your own Typos
Why is proofreading your own work so time-consuming?
Bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe
“Because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole”. It’s not because you’re careless or a bad writer. Your brain is actually being very smart! When we read someone else’s work, it helps us grasp meaning faster by using less brain power. BUT when you proofread or edit our own work, you already know the meaning you want to convey. So the words on the page you are re-reading have to compete with the version already in your brain!
…And that’s a BIG problem
Research consistently shows technical language errors damage your perceived intellect, trustworthiness and conscientiousness. One study found that an average of 21% of peer-reviewed journal submissions were rejected during the initial manuscript review¹. In some fields, not enough proofreading is the number one reason articles are rejected²!

What people are saying
- Editations was very thorough in their copy-editing of my management research paper for clarity of expression, style and consistency. Particularly important for me, however, was the time freed up by not having to do the painful proofreading, edits and rewrites of the article myself. They were proactive in their communication and the entire process was managed for me. I intend to use Editations to help increase my writing output in future, and I would recommend anyone seeking to write and publish research to do the same.2017-05-08T21:01:57+00:00
Munib K. - Founder, Wave Design
- I had Editations edit and proofread a research paper for a medical journal. When I'd written similar articles of +2000 words before, it would usually take around 50 hours to do - and I'd normally end up feeling that my ideas were not easy to follow on paper. The content was there, but the sentences were not concise and did not flow well. I hadn’t thought of hiring an external editorial service in the past, but I'm glad I chose Editations - instead of spending time out of my day doing painstaking edits, I was able to focus on the next paper instead. Their service was fast, thorough and really improved the readability of my paper. I would highly recommend it to my colleagues!2017-02-12T13:22:04+00:00
Thomas D. - Student, University of New South Wales
- In addition to editing and proofreading for grammar and syntax, Editations proved very useful for providing insightful feedback on my clarity of expression and argument consistency. This was for a research paper for a humanities journal, where the 6000+ words of the article can be difficult to keep clear and consistent. Not only did Editations assist with improving my article by editing and commenting on the structure and style of my writing, but they did so in a very timely manner. I highly recommend their services, irrespective of what discipline area the article is in.2017-02-12T13:35:55+00:00

- I started this year with a backlog of manuscripts that I had intended to submit for publication last year, but just couldn't between teaching, admin and other academic commitments. I'm grateful I came across Editations – they are friendly, attentive and professional. Their turn-around time is very good: 3-4 days. Their prices are reasonable. Highly recommended for busy academics and HDR students!2017-03-18T16:15:17+00:00
