Contingency Fees

Contingency fees are invoiced to your account when unexpected circumstances arise. To avoid expensive contingency fees, transparency and open communication between client and editor are key to keeping costs as low as possible. 

Rush fee

                Clients occasionally present a project that cannot be completed on schedule unless editors agree to work additional hours at night, on weekends or on holidays. In such a case, a rush fee may be negotiated to cover the overtime involved.  

Late fee

                Because our editors reserve time for projects and depend on clients’ schedules, it’s necessary for contracts to protect the editor’s working time. A late fee is assessed if the client doesn’t provide the manuscript so that work may begin on time.  

Cancellation fee

                Invoiced to your account if the project is cancelled after our editor has begun work on your manuscript or project. 

Publication Discount

Stacks Editing will discount your total invoice if you publish your work and provide our editors with a final or bound, published copy of your thesis, dissertation or other project. Each published academic or scholarly project builds on the body of work already published in your research field, contributing to the overall knowledge base nationally and worldwide. If you wish, we will refer you to an experienced publishing house or printer who can talk with you about the particulars of preparing your project for publication.  

We will advise you generally on how to obtain a registered copyright from the U.S. Copyright Office.

Copyright Registration

We will advise you generally on how to obtain a registered copyright from the U.S. Copyright Office and/or a 13-digit numeric commercial book identifier – an International Standard Book Number (ISBN) – for your published work.
