Editors For Students does not endorse or recommend plagiarism, which academic institutions define as the use of another writer's words or ideas without citation. We strongly recommend that students writing essays that will be graded primarily on their grammar seek academically legitimate and endorsed sources of writing help. These include peer review, the use of writing centers, and meetings with professors and advisors. Writers who are unsure of the ethics of using professional editors in their particular courses should check with their professors before using our services. Professors who do endorse the use of editing services often find that it helps them and their students to focus on course ideas and materials and relieves their workload. Although we offer our services directly to students, professors with pre-publication manuscripts do work with us and are encouraged to inquire about editing for their drafts.
In keeping with generally agreed upon guidelines for ethical editing as suggested by sources such as the Chicago Manual of Style, we do not staff editors specifically hired as experts in a given field. This ensures that editors do not develop ideas and concepts for our clients and instead allows them to focus on elements of grammar and style.
Like our essay and dissertation editing services, our admissions essay editing service does not provide substantive revision or developmental editing. Other Internet sites do provide these services, along with coaching and rewriting, and we recommend that writers seeking such services search for them online if such services are deemed legitimate sources of help in the context for which they are writing.
Our thesis and dissertation editing services, to which committee chairs often refer their students, are designed to help graduate students prepare grammatically clean and properly formatted drafts. These services, before the Internet put them in reach of students seeking them online, were traditionally performed by professional typesetters, editors, colleagues, university employees, and partners working offline. Editors For Students does not provide research or developmental editing for thesis and dissertation writers and we enjoy working with clients with interesting and developed graduate work who seek additional clarity and precision in their drafts before publishing them.
Advisors and professors with questions about Editors For Students are encouraged to contact us for more information about our services.
Our Quality Guarantee: We will ensure, as we have since 2002, that the final draft you receive from us is completely ready to publish or turn in and will work with you until it's ready or refund your payment.
