Science Communications Agency


At 24 Media Labs we understand that academic budgets and timescales can sometimes be tight. We can help. Our aim is to provide you with the communication services and advice you require at a price you can afford.

If you would like to discuss your project with us, please contact us here. We guarantee confidentiality.

Academic Writing and Editing

For academic writing and editing we typically charge €65 per hour*. We always try to provide an accurate assessment of the total budget required for a particular project. We can also work on a per word rate for writing and editing if you feel more comfortable with this. You will then know before we start work the final budget required for a project.

Rates vary and will depend very much on the information provided before commencing work and the style, purpose and aims of your project. To give you an idea of the typical costs of different projects here are some examples:

  • Proof-reading a 7000 word manuscript prior to submission for peer-review: €195 (e.g. 3 hours work)
  • Light editing of a 7000 word manuscript prior to submission for peer-review: €390 (e.g. 6 hours work)
  • Writing a complete 7000 word manuscript ready for submission to peer review: €3000 to €4500 (e.g. 45-70 hours work)
