Alternative Enterprise

Ocean Editors is not obligated to maximize profit for shareholders. This empowers us to provide clients with lower prices and simultaneously provide better compensation for our respected editors.


Why Ocean Editors is an alternative enterprise

  • Traditional English language editing companies charge high prices to clients, while their editors receive low pay.

  • ...but editors have the skills and credentials that make these companies valuable. Why aren't editors paid appropriately?

  • The profit maximization obligation of traditional businesses causes these enterprises to pay their editors low percentages, to create an artificial surplus for owners.

  • Therefore, our purpose is to connect clients with editors while operating with low overhead and low profit. Our social model is better for clients, journals, our editors, and is more sustainable, more efficient, and more competitive.

    We avoided traditional investment to pursue an alternative economy — in our interest, in your interest.
