Dr Smith, PhD To reduce wordiness, try to avoid using “there is” or “there are” to begin a phrase or sentence.

Dr Smith, PhD I modified the order of ideas in this sentence to improve the logical flow and readability.

We will correct grammar, punctuation and consistency.

Dr Smith

Dr Smith, PhD This phrase can either be hyphenated or unhyphenated when used in this context (modifying another word or phrase that follows it), but the unhyphenated form is more common, so I will follow that style throughout this document.

General feedback and advice

The editor will provide feedback and advice on the content and structure of your document, both within the text and in their Editor’s Summary Report.

Substantial improvement

“I sent each of my chapters individually over a period of a few months. Each time they sent a chapter back, it was improved. I particularly liked the suggestions for better words in a scientific-academic style.”
Marc, University of Illinois

Fixed my organization issues

“I have a wide vocabulary, but my organization reflects that English is a second language to me. My thesis editor has been very helpful in fixing this problem. The best thesis editing service!”
Olga, Universität Freiburg

Dissertation editing – excellent

“A very good dissertation editing service. I had two editors review my file, so there were a great deal of changes made. I accepted almost all of them and I think my dissertation is much better for it.”
Tabhita, Boston University

Get the support of highly experienced academic editors

We’ll ensure that your dissertation or thesis is submitted in the best possible condition by assigning it to an academic editor with expertise in your field.

Each year, our editors review more than 6,000 dissertations and theses from a range of subject areas for students and PhD candidates from all over the world. Our clients’ feedback is overwhelmingly positive, and we work hard on each order to keep it this way.

Don’t lose precious marks for weaknesses in your English and academic style

At most universities, up to 20% of your grade depends on the quality of your writing.

Our editors will ensure that you don’t lose precious marks due to weaknesses in your writing ability. We’ll improve academic tone, register, flow and structure to help ensure that your writing is well received by the grading professor.

Are you an ESL student or academic?

Writing in a second language is challenging, and doing so to an academic standard is even more difficult. There are so many obscure stylistic conventions that even educated native speakers sometimes struggle with academic writing.

As current and former academics, our editors know exactly what grading professors do—and don’t—want to see in a dissertation or thesis.

Hire the experts to help

Nothing influences your final degree classification more than the mark you receive for your dissertation or thesis.

If you choose to hire us to review and improve your dissertation or thesis,  you are making an investment in your education and the result of your degree or doctorate. Our previous clients will attest to this.

Subject-matter expertise

With over 300 editors spanning the full spectrum of academic disciplines, we can pair most documents with a professional who has experience in the subject area. We know there is no substitute for subject-matter expertise.

More than 300 experienced academic editors

All of our editors hold advanced degrees from leading global universities.

Many are members of leading industry bodies, such as the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS) and the Council of Science Editors (CSE).

Our rigorous selection process ensures that we work with only the best editors.
