Complete Prep Editing & Formatting Service
In 2018, we combined our most popular services to present our Complete Prep thesis and dissertation editing service. When you order our Complete Prep service, we review every detail your thesis or dissertation needs addressed: errors in grammar, clarity, style, voice, and citation and layout formatting. Our clients call it "the works."
You've labored years to compile your data and present your findings. Why leave the final stages to chance? Become one of the thousands of thesis and dissertation writers who have entrusted their final draft thesis and dissertation editing and formatting to us today.
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.
What Complete Prep Covers
- Grammar: In our first pass of essay editing, we correct subject-verb agreement, pronoun referents, run-on and fragmented sentences (i.e., sentence boundaries), weak or improper verb usage, and other fatal grammatical mistakes. In this stage, we correct for basic grammar before we move on to the next step: style and voice editing.
- Style & Voice: In our second pass over every essay or article our clients order, we edit for style and voice. Style and voice editing addresses tone, word choice, pronoun usage, sentence structure, the overuse of active voice, and more. It also ensures that your writing conventions are consistent with your field's style guides (for example, numbers and statistical terminology are written differently in APA than MLA, and the correct use of italics varies across disciplines). "Voice," meanwhile, addresses the use of the passive voice when an active voice is better or required by your style guide.
- Proofreading: Once we've edited for grammar, style, and voice, we complete our essay editing with a final proofreading pass to ensure that the final details are covered: every last comma use error, extra space, unneeded carriage return, and stray period (the list could go on) is found and corrected.
- Citation Formatting: Included with our Complete Prep package, we check and revise your citations (footnotes or parenthetical references) and reference list to exacting compliance with your academic style. Are the commas after the journal title in your APA reference list still italicized? Are your DOIs full URLs? Are your Chicago footnotes citing previous authors correctly? We'll cover all these fine details.
- Layout Formatting: Layout formatting requires using multiple Word functions (e.g., the styles pane, pagination, headers and footers, section and page breaks) and takes hours of precious time. With layout formatting automatically included with your Complete Prep editing order today, we format your paper following your department's style guidelines to ensure that the margins, page numbering, spacing, headers, Table of Contents/List of Tables, table and figure tags, and anything else they require are correct.
No Revisions Necessary
After we've completed editing and proofreading your dissertation, we'll send a copy of your edited dissertation draft back to you with track changes turned on for your review (and to show our work). We don't leave comments for you to address or any marginal notes that you'll need to sort through. When we find an error, we correct it so that you don't have to. Your final daft is here. It's that straightforward.
