The Survey of Freelance ELT Editorial Rates and Fees

The Survey of Freelance ELT Editorial Rates and Fees takes place every three years, and the third survey took place in November 2019. The fourth survey will be run in November 2022. 

The survey is detailed and gathers data on fees and hourly rates across the ELT publishing sector for such tasks as proofreading, copy editing, content editing, writing, project management, consulting and training others. It also looks at emerging trends in negotiations, preferences for payment by set fees or hourly rates, issues surrounding increasing your rates in line with inflation, and so on.

ELT Publishing Professionals members have full access to the detailed results of all three surveys in the members' area of the directory website. If you are not a member, you can view a summary of the 2019 survey results on the ELTpp public page.
