Which level of service?

Proofreading

At the student proofreading level, your entire document will be checked for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar. One of our editors will work through the whole document twice to remove all typographic errors, while your references will be checked in the main body of the document as well as your final references list/bibliography. This service is recommended for authors who feel confident about their English language usage, but would like a second pair of eyes to review their document without making any fundamental changes.

The proofreading process:

  • Removes typographic errors ✓
  • Repairs spelling, grammar and punctuation ✓
  • Ensures consistency of abbreviations ✓

Editing

Therefore, repeated terms will be substituted with appropriate synonyms, short sentences will be combined using linking structures, sentences will be rephrased where necessary, and the overall written standard of the document enhanced to the level of a native English reader’s expectations. Feedback and advice will also be given on your writing content and referencing approach, suitability of sources, etc.
