WordsRU has considerable experience with editing prospectuses, idea papers, proposals, and final dissertation reports.
Our dissertation editing goes above and beyond the basics of grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, sentence structure, etc. Your WordsRU academic editor will also check your paper for compliance with the citation style you are using, as well as any school or department requirements for form and style. We can also assist you in formatting the front matter (title page, signature page, etc.) and back matter (appendices) to meet your university, school, or department requirements.
WordsRU's chief editors make every effort to assign to your project an editor who has expertise and experience in your field, to ensure that you receive the best possible feedback on your content. Furthermore, your WordsRU editor can work with you according to your convenience. You can submit your dissertation in parts as you complete them or all at once.
We will return two copies of the paper: a marked copy, with all corrections and comments showing, and a revised copy that has the corrections accepted and comments removed. Note that the revised copy will not necessarily be ready to submit to your Chair, Mentor, or Advisor! You should review the edit and address any comments or suggestions the editor has made. There may be additional information you need to add to the reference list entries or areas of your paper that require more development on your end.
WordsRU will not "slam the door" on you once the major editing has been completed! Your editor will remain available to answer questions, clarify comments, and review brief passages that you might decide to revise, based on the edit.
Most importantly, our high ethical standards ensure that your content and meaning will not be altered in any way. WordsRU will not write your dissertation for you, nor will our editors research, write, or add to your content. However, our editors will make suggestions and recommendations for how you can improve your dissertation, such as where you might add or remove text to make your point more clear. Our considerable experience with high-caliber academic work means that we know what your Chair, Advisor, or Mentor is looking for. WordsRU's dissertation editing service will help you to present a prospectus, idea paper, proposal, or final dissertation report that your reviewers can review without getting bogged down in form, style, or writing issues.
