If you're already confident with your paper's voice, style, and logical coherence but would like its word-level errors, punctuation, and typographic errors corrected, one of our academic proofreading services is the best choice for a final review of your essay draft.
What Does Proofreading Cover?
Our essay proofreading service resumes where your word processor's spelling and grammar checks leave off, providing a final review of your document that software can't parallel. By correcting the following commonly-overlooked errors, we dramatically improve the impression your writing makes.
- Basic Grammar: In our review for basic grammar, we correct basic grammatical errors like agreement and number errors that may be left in your otherwise clear and organized draft.
- Spelling and Word Choice: We carefully review and correct your essay, looking for the errors that spell checkers routinely miss like homonym substitutions and incorrect word choice.
- Punctuation and Spacing: We find and fix misplaced commas, periods, colons, semicolons, dashes, extra spaces, and parentheses in your final draft.
- Typographic Errors: Typographic errors, such as extra letters and spaces, can undermine your reader's confidence in your writing. We'll make sure that these errors are removed from your final draft.
Our final pass proofreading service is available with 72-hour, 48-hour, and 24-hour deadlines. We'll also review and correct your references and citations using your preferred style guide with our citation and layout formatting services added.
The Difference Between Proofreading & Editing
Our proofreading services address basic grammar but do not revise for style and voice. If your draft requires more extensive revisions, you'll likely want to order our essay editing service.
A thorough essay proofreading requires a human eye that remains attentive to your style, the context of each correction made, and the content of your thesis. For these reasons, natural intelligence remains, as it has been since our founding in 2002, at the core of our editing service.
