Proofreading is usually the last step before printing, binding and finally submitting your thesis. It is important that you leave some time for this to be carried out properly. Too many errors in your document and the examiners will ask you to resubmit it even if the research itself is passed. If English is not your first language then professional proofreading by a native speaker is absolutely essential. I have been proofreading for decades and have been offering academic proofreading for PhD candidates for 9 years. It is very important that you use a proofreader who is experienced in working with PhD level chapters.
My proofreading service includes the following:
- Correction of grammar
- Correction of spelling and punctuation
- Improvement of sentence flow
- Correction of mistakes in citations
- Improvement of vocabulary
- Replacement of bad syntax
- Formatting of headings/ subheadings
- Ensuring your list of references is accurate and consistent
The track changes feature in Microsoft Word will be used so that you can see all the improvements. If you need an urgent service then this is also possible.
The standard fee for PhD proofreading is £12.95 per 1000 words
Sometimes your text may need more than proofreading. For this I have a full editing service for clients whose work needs more time spent on it to get them the result they are looking for or to meet their supervisor’s requirements.
