Ms. Hoyle holds a Master of Physics (4-year degree) with Honours (MPhys(Hons)) in Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology, gained at Lancaster University, UK. She has been a full-time freelance copyeditor since 2004 and particularly enjoys the varied and cutting-edge aspects of her work, along with the one-on-one help that she provides and the satisfaction gained from the end results. She has copyedited books, reports, and over 300 papers in physics and related fields such as economics, engineering, and computing for non-native English writers, many of which have gone on to be published in major international journals. She is confident in both British and American English texts, pays close attention to style guides, and is proficient in editing in a wide variety of formats in addition to MS Word, including PDF, HTML, PowerPoint, MathType, and LaTeX.
Books she has recently copyedited include the graduate-level textbook Introduction to Reactive Gas Dynamics, by a non-native English writer, for Oxford University Press. Her own writing has been published in the internationally distributed premier UK physics magazine, Physics World, and she has subedited (copyedited) at the Institute of Physics (IOP) Publishing. As a full-time copyeditor, she is committed to her work in STEM (scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematical), including economic editing. She has been an Associate Member of the IOP since 1998 and is a Member of the Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators (ISTC). She is also a Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), with which she has been affiliated since 2004.
