Thesis Editing and Proofreading Service

(Calculate cost)

What's involved in proofreading We examine your thesis to remove errors in spelling, agreement, and punctuation. Mistakes in grammar can come across as errors in logic since they certainly confuse the reader, making it appear that the premises of your thesis are disconnected or flawed. Thesis proofreading focuses on catching the errors such as sentence fragments, subject-verb agreement, pronoun referents, run-ons, ineffective or inappropriate verb forms, and other grammatical errors, especially the ones Microsoft Word's spelling and grammar check routinely ignores. See a full editing and proofreading list.

What's involved in editing
Our thesis editing service focuses on these components in the editing process: Personal service from your thesis editor
When using our professional thesis services, your file is always corrected by academic editors with a decade or more of experience working with students and with knowledge of writing and publishing academic journal articles and other projects. Your insight and opinions are integral to the success of your project. Please include all of your instructions and concerns when submitting it.

Meeting the needs of students
Our thesis editing service is for students who need added organization, clarity, and style to their writing or who need their language raised to academic standards. Additionally, it is a perfect service for those students who may be non-native speakers who need help that goes beyond just proofreading. Thesis editing at this point in the process greatly assists your advisor and committee by presenting your research in a more organized, highly readable style. Something many students do not think about, thesis editing also greatly facilitates the shift from your thesis defense to the launch of your career.

Whether you are completely self-assured about your writing or hesitant of your ability to share your thoughts, you can benefit from editing. Our thesis editing service corrects your document's, flow, continuity, and word choice as well as makes sure you are properly supporting your thoughts and positions. In addition, we make sure that the meaning in your writing is clear and easy for readers to understand. We want you to be successful and we do our best to make sure your writing represents your ideas in your thesis in the best way possible.

Professional thesis editors save time
By making sure that all of our thesis editors have more than a decade of experience writing and editing, we get your project done quickly and efficiently. Our thesis editors are all published authors who are committed to helping you. We have advanced degrees and experience in a variety of scientific areas. Remember, beyond just proofreading and editing, our thesis editors are here to answer your questions and give you suggestions.

Why we edit
Some students find it difficult to control being too verbose. Some are not quite sure what to include and what to leave out. Often, writers are so engaged in their own project that they fill pages with a great deal of information but fail to properly organize their work or express themselves with the best word choice. We specialize in beautifying language, and transforming drafts into the thesis you want.

Thesis Citation Style Formatting Service

(Calculate cost)

We offer our thesis APA style formatting as an add-on service when you order thesis editing and proofreading. We prepare your thesis according to the latest version of your style guide. We can also accommodate your university-specific guidelines. Combined with proofreading and editing, with our APA style formatting service, you have a fully paginated version of your thesis with preliminary pages, headings, citations, and references in proper form and arrangement. Additionally, we create a citation to reference verification file for you to note when citations are not in the reference section and references are not in the body of the dissertation as in-text citations.

Thesis formatting
Specific to your school and citation style.

If you send your thesis in Microsoft Word format, we can return two copies to you when finished. One is the original with changes highlighted. The other is the final version.

All of our thesis editors have doctoral degrees and years of training as teachers, published authors, and professionals in various disciplines. We provide the right editor for your needs. We default to American English, APA publication style, and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. We’re happy to use other styles and conventions. However, any deviations from these rules must be noted by the author beforehand to avoid re-editing.

No. The editing function has been a long-time feature and the files we send you are for a PC or Mac.

We much prefer Microsoft Word because of its Track Changes feature. However, if you check with us first, we support digital texts in a range of formats (e.g., Microsoft Word, Works, AppleWorks, Pages, Rich Text, and Open Office).

Our editors ensure that your thesis editing complies with your style requirements. Specify whether you are using APA, MLA, Chicago, CSE, either of the Canadian styles, Harvard, Turabian, International English, ASA, Australian, Vancouver, Oxford Style, or another citation style of your choosing.

A member of our thesis editing staff can usually respond within two to three hours. We complete a thesis within a few business days. An editor and proofreader will accept it only if we can have the finished thesis editing back to you before your deadline.

Proofreading and editing are approximately 1 cent per word; the exact price can be determined using our cost calculator. Formatting is approximately ½ a cent per word.

We currently accept PayPal, Zelle, SquareUp, Venmo, bank cards, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, and Maestro. The method of payment is a secure system with industry standard 128-bit encryption. This is the premier form of encryption available for Internet transactions and is the same level of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and most retail stores. Please note: An account is not required to process your credit card and our staff never see your personal data.

The proofreading and editing rate is based on word count and your choice between proofreading and editing or formatting too. Unlike other thesis editing companies, we do not have confusing editing rates per page or vague quotes. We provide exact figures for editing services. Send us your file and specify editing and proofreading and whether you want formatting too.

MS Word has a feature you can use to obtain a word count. Alternatively, send it to us. We will calculate the amount and send you an email with a link to your invoice and payment options. If you want to calculate it yourself, multiply the number of words in your thesis times 0.013 for proofreading and editing or times 0.019 for proofreading, editing, and formatting. For instance: 30,000 x 0.013 = $390 [USD].

Our smallest charge is $25 [USD]. If you have a project with a word count that is shorter than the minimum, we may be able to work on it for you, but the charge would be $25 USD.

We reword individual sentences. We may rearrange sentences. We may offer suggestions to improve the organization of paragraphs and sections within your thesis. Complete rewriting would constitute plagiarism and is not an option.

The entire payment process is conducted through one of their secure websites. No banking information or credit card data is ever collected or stored by us.
