Types of work we do

We offer personalised and flexible services, individually designed to meet each client's needs in communication planning, writing, editing, design, production and project management.

We seek to deliver top-quality projects on time and within budget.

Our commitment is to make the process as clear and easy as possible for the client.

We are always ready to discuss your specific project requirements and tailor our services to your needs and budgets.

Editing and proofreading

SUBStitution provides editing services at whatever level clients require. Sometimes a document needs the 'full works' - a structural revamp as well as work to ensure the content suits the audience and is clear and accurate.

Sometimes reports and publications need copyediting - a close eye on the grammar, punctuation, spelling, style and consistency.

We also offer the 'last loo' that is proofreading, checking and cross-checking text, headlines, quotes and captions, as well as the 'big picture' before your product is made public.


Publications Management

Whether it's a magazine, a newsletter or a technical report, SUBStitution can help every step of the way - from concept development to printing and distributing the finished product.

We provide our clients with support in every area of publishing - writing, editing, photography, layout, print management, distribution and advertising sales. The level of our involvement depends on each client's individual requirements.

Projects we're currently involved with include business to business magazines, newsletters, research reports, peer-reviewed journals, government reports, electronic newsletters, corporate brochures and annual reports.


Peer-Review Administration

The academic peer-review process calls for efficiency,confidentiality and a great deal of tact. For years, SUBStitution has been providing administrative support to several leading Australian peer-reviewed journals. We have a solid background in managing the `blind' review process necessary to preserve the integrity of the authors work and guarantee the reviewers' anonymity.

We work to strict deadlines to ensure prompt and efficient handling of manuscripts. This allows the editors to concentrate on the content and quality of the journals.


Project management

Efficient project management is at the very core of how SUBStitution operates. Over the years, we have established tried and tested project management systems that allow our clients to focus on the content, quality and strategic role of their publications.

Our 'golden rules' of project management are simple:

  • We ask the right questions at the outset to prevent problems and pitfalls down the track.
  • We listen to our clients and do everything in our power to meet their needs.
  • We believe in meeting deadlines.
  • We take responsibility for our work and that of our suppliers.
  • We keep our processes and pricing transparent every step of the way.
