“Working with Ideas on Fire was an incredible experience. I have new expectations for copyeditors and indexers now, thanks to their work. I recommend IoF to all the academics and writers I know.”
“It’s clear that IoF is especially skilled at working with interdisciplinary scholars. They were able to engage my book with an attentiveness to for the methods, sources, and theories I use.”
“I recommend Ideas on Fire’s services to anyone, from recent PhD grads and early academics to veteran scholars. The opportunity to have a fresh set of eyes on a project—particularly if those eyes are well-versed in academic culture and theory—is a gift.”
