Premium Editing for


Business Academics

Since 2010


Writing has been called the currency of academia—and it’s not hard to see why. Whether it’s being used to secure research funding, a prestigious appointment, publication in a top journal, or any other life-changing opportunity, your writing must be exceptional to succeed in today’s fiercely competitive academic market.

At the same time, many academics are being asked to do more with less time and resources than ever before. You can’t afford to put your writing on the back burner, but you also can’t feasibly polish every important document to the level that it deserves. Turning your hard work and complex ideas over to an untested third party for some general edits is equally unthinkable.

This is where CS Phares is poised to serve you best. 

For 13 years, we’ve helped business academics communicate their ground-breaking ideas: FT 50 articles, white papers, case studies, investor reports, tenure packages, grant applications—you name it, we've edited it. This experience in business academic writing exclusively has helped us develop an arsenal of field-specific knowledge and tools to maximize our clients’ chances of success with their documents.


Ready to unlock the value that polished, persuasive writing can bring to your career?

In the three years that I have worked with Catie, my coauthors and I have enjoyed better results with our writing projects and more time to work on other things. Once I hand something off to her, I can trust that it will come back polished to a standard that journal editors notice. I appreciate her attention to detail and her helpful comments that improve not just the paper in question, but our writing in general.
