IDEAS ON FIRE

Academic editing and indexing services for interdisciplinary scholars
Work with us

We are an academic editing and indexing agency helping progressive, interdisciplinary scholars write and publish awesome texts, enliven public conversations, and create more just worlds.

Our transnational team of developmental editors, copyeditors, indexers, researchers, and teachers work at the cutting edge of knowledge production, fostering the ideas and texts that build racial, gender, sexual, disability, and environmental justice.

From our clients

Ideas on Fire has been a vital partner in launching and sustaining Feminist Anthropology. The thoughtfulness and deep intent that go into the copyediting process are reflected in the content expertise of the team and the clear communication with our editorial team and authors. Transparency has been a steady component of this relationship: journal style is revisited and articulated as necessary, and timelines are always honored. Working with IoF gives us confidence in the quality of our journal.”

Sameena Mulla

coeditor, Feminist Anthropology

“I have always been amazed at the broad range of interdisciplinary scholarship that Ideas on Fire has worked on. Working with the team was one of the most beneficial decisions I made to ensure that my book and its index would be useful and accessible to readers in diverse fields. I am so pleased with the index that Ideas on Fire created. It was so clearly thoughtful and demonstrated a rich understanding of and engagement with my work both on my own terms as well as in envisioning a broad potential of readers.”

IoF is especially skilled at working with interdisciplinary scholars. They were able to engage my book with an attentiveness to and care for the methods, sources, and theories I use. IoF not only pulled out concepts and themes I knew were central, they also identified ones that never would have occurred to me. They were incredibly communicative with me about what I could expect and set a clear timeline that kept everything on track.”
