Our rates are based on an average of 10 pages an hour for manuscripts formatted per Shunn’s guidelines. If your manuscript is not submitted in a 12-pt. Courier or Times New Roman font, double-spaced between lines, with one-inch margins on each side, it will be reformatted to match these guidelines and priced accordingly.
