Why Use an Editor?

“Donna Reeder is the best editor I know. Donna has produced excellent...work for me on many occasions over several years—copy editing...formatting...indexing...selecting book cover designs...her gifted language skills and editing ability...high work standards, substantial professional skills, and her thoroughness and performance level are all outstanding.”

~Steven Pressman: Review of Political Economy, and Eastern Economic Journal; author, Understanding Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century; and Fifty Major Economists, 1st–3rd editions; Economics and finance faculty: Colorado State University; Monmouth University


Donna edited nearly every manuscript that eGEMs has published...We relied on Donna’s finely-honed editing skills, her attention to detail, and her flexibility in accommodating our often unpredictable flow and length of manuscripts.

Her ability to improve manuscripts while staying true to the authors’ meaning is something we valued highly.

Her commitment to timeliness is also something we’ve never had cause to doubt, as she always completes her work by or before deadline.

Donna is among the most reliable and professional editors I have ever worked with, and I recommend her services without reservation.

~David Padgham: Managing editor: eGEMs (AcademyHealth): http://www.egems.org


“From the very beginning Donna Reeder advised us on...the copy-editing process, including designing the house style and guidelines for authors... Her work is of the highest standard, and...turns badly written drafts... into a clear and enjoyable article.

Authors and editors alike have benefited immensely from her recommendations over the years.”

~Jurgen De Wispelaere: Senior journal editor: Basic Income Studies journal;

McGill University, Montreal, Canada
