Is Reference Formatting what you're looking for?

Reference Formatting is time-consuming, especially if you aren’t confident in the style guidelines. It is also part of the marking criteria, meaning improper formatting will result in unnecessary mark deductions. With our range of editors from different academic backgrounds, we have experience in nearly all reference styles. Your editor will review your references carefully checking that the fine details are correct. This includes use of commas and full stops, capitalisations, journal and book titles, page numbers, the format of author names and hanging formatting where appropriate. Whether you submit your references on their own, or as part of you full assignment, let our editors take the pressure off the final formatting.

How do we format your references?

Proof Master aims to make our Reference Formatting service as simple as possible. Upload a Microsoft Word document with only your references. If you choose Reference Formatting in addition to your main essay being edited, please upload two separate documents – one for your essay and one for your references. This enables our word count tool to give you an accurate price quote. Once received, your work will be assigned to a suitable editor and they will use the Tracked Changes function in Microsoft Word to showcase their edits. Once complete, you will be notified via email. You can download your references from the email or from the “My Orders” section in your account. Two documents will be available – one showing all the edits, and a second clean version with these accepted, leaving any comments visible.
