Other Academic Documents
WordsRU can assist you with editing a variety of academic and scholarly documents, such as conference papers, monographs, grant or research proposals, faculty self-review packages, instructional handouts and materials, and any other written obligations that academic scholars and instructors incur.
If your document is not listed here, just contact us and we'll be happy to address your unique editing needs! Our team of professional editors has a wide array of experience and expertise with a variety of subject areas and document types.
Academic conference papers serve to inform conference organizers of work that is either completed or currently being developed by a group of researchers with a common interest. A conference's "Call for Papers" or "Call for Abstracts" might have you wondering if yours is ready. Submitting a conference paper is a competitive process, and acceptable papers must be cohesive, succinct, and consistent.
WordsRU editors are prepared to bring your conference paper to the next level. Not only do we edit for the basics of grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation, organization, and overall clarity, but we also ensure adherence to the conference requirements. Both your research and your reputation is connected to the polished and effective presentation of your findings, so your editor will make sure that your paper stands out for excellence!
A monograph is a scholarly treatise on a single topic, examined in depth, and is usually written by only one author. Monographs can be as short as an essay or as long as a book, and any size in between.
WordsRU's chief editors will assign your monograph to an editor who has an understanding of your field of study to ensure fluency with the topic. While your editor will not alter your content, he or she will make suggestions and recommendations for improvement, if necessary.
Grant or Research Proposals
Whether your proposal is for a grant or for approval to conduct a research study, the primary function is to present your idea and a method to bring the idea to fruition. Both grant and research proposals follow the same basic formula, beginning with an introduction of the idea or problem, followed by a review of the current literature to support the project's significance a description of the methodology, and a summary of what has been presented.
Your WordsRU editor is aware that an effectively—written proposal makes the difference in securing a grant or obtaining approval to conduct your research. We take special care to help you convince your audience of the worthiness of your proposal, while maintaining a professional and informed tone.
Faculty Self-Review Packages
Periodically, faculty members are required to prepare and submit a multi-faceted and detailed accounting of their accomplishments to date and their intentions for future work. These accounts must not only be convincing, persuasive, and consistent, but must also follow explicit university guidelines.
WordsRU editors recognize that the presentation of your self-review documents is directly tied to your career in academia. Our high-quality editing ensures that your point is made, and that your self-review stands out among the rest. We strictly adhere to the guidelines you are required to follow, as well as edit for the basics of grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation, organization, and overall clarity, in order to help you win your promotion or tenure.
Instructional Handouts and Materials
If you are a faculty member preparing for a class, additional materials make all the difference in your students' understanding of and enthusiasm for your class discussions. If you are a student preparing curriculum for a class assignment, quality supplemental materials can really help you shine!
WordsRU's talented editors have considerable experience proofreading and assisting in the organization of instructional handouts and materials. We are well versed in the intricacies of PowerPoint presentations, single-page handouts, or whatever else you use to make course delivery lively and interesting. Your WordsRU editor will make helpful suggestions and comments to help you polish your materials, interest your students, and impress your reviewers.
