The Original All-Academic Editing Service
You've reached this page because you're seeking clarity, consistency, and grammatical precision in your writing. You've come to the right place. Since our founding in 2002 as the original all-academic editing service, we've provided final-draft proofreading, formatting, and editing services that students (and professors) can afford for their most important work.
We were the first online service to make dissertation and essay editing widely available and affordable and to prove that professors would endorse professional editing for student writers. In fact, our oldest online review comes from Amazon.com in 2004:
Our PromiseThe final draft you receive from us will be completely ready to publish or turn in, and we'll work with you until it's ready or refund your payment.
Our Editing Services
Essay Editing ServicesOur essay editing and essay proofreading services address style, voice, basic grammar, and typographical errors.
Express Essay Editing & ProofreadingOur express editing and express essay proofreading services are available for essay writers who need us to meet 24 and 48 hour deadlines.
Thesis & Dissertation Editing & ProofreadingOur thesis and dissertation editing and proofreading services were created to ensure that your final draft is ready for submission and publication. For "the works" (i.e., editing, citation formatting, and layout formatting combined), the easiest service to order is Complete Prep Thesis and Dissertation Editing.
Resumé Editing & Admission Essay EditingOur resumé editing and admissions essay editing services assist your academic and professional development at accessible rates.
Dissertation Formatting ServicesOur dissertation formatting service ensures that the guidelines for the appearance of your draft––enforced by universities, departments, and style manuals––are met, and our citation formatting service ensures that your reference list and internal citations comply with your chosen academic style.
Tips for Essay WritersOur essay writing tips for college writers offer teaching tools for composition professors and writing centers and helpful advice for writers struggling to understand and ins and outs of common essay types.
Since our founding in 2002, we've prepared (i.e., edited, formatted, and proofread) tens of thousands of pages of student dissertations for publication in ProQuest and ERIC's databases alone.
The rates for our services are set to meet the needs and budgets of graduate and undergraduate students. We've done the math, and our per-page rates are comparable to the hourly rates offered elsewhere, and our prices are slightly lower than those of our competitors' rates per page.
We edit. They proofread (and call it editing).
Other companies use a pool of casual or part-time editors who produce work like the sample we recently requested from another service and re-edited here.
The Editing Process
When you order editing services from us, we'll change the grammar and style directly in your draft using Word's track changes function. After we edit your essay or dissertation and return it by email, you can choose to review each of the changes individually or accept them universally. Unlike other services online, we don't leave comments or suggestions for you to review. Instead, we'll return an error-free, print-ready draft.
Grammar check apps like Grammarly can help writers find many of the errors in their papers and dissertations, but they routinely make incorrect suggestions and reduce your writing to a standard style that reads as artificial and clunky. Your final draft needs a human eye to check for contextual errors, revise to ensure natural phrasing, and help you maintain a fluid, consistent style.
What You'll Need to Get Started
To place an order with us, you'll need a Word version of the essay, thesis, or dissertation draft that you'd like us to edit, the total word count of the document, any instructions or guidelines that you'd like us to follow (such as formatting guidelines or comments from a professor or advisor), and a payment method.
