Thesis & Publication Editing

For academics & PhD students looking for the ultimate finish to a critical piece of work

£18.99 per 1,000 words


For most academics, your final thesis or publication is the product of many years of intense work. Many hours of research, analysis and writing are all combined into just one document.  It is expected to be of an incredibly high standard and written with sufficient clarity that it could be replicated. The conclusions have to be accurate and based on evidence, and details that could be overlooked. Thesis/publication writing comes with a lot of pressure!

After hundreds of hours immersed in this work, you know everything possible about it. That also means that you read it from an expert position. This service aims to ensure your ideas are perfectly clear to a new reader, that your progression through the research is logical and that every sentence communicates exactly what it needs to.

Service Overview

Our Thesis & Publication Editing service provides an in-depth copy edit of your work. Clarity with both of these documents is essential. Your editor will review each sentence for more than simply grammar or spelling errors. They consider whether the structure of the sentence is clear, whether it links to the sentence before/after it and whether each paragraph follows on from the previous. They will ensure that the tone of your writing is suitable for such a prestigious piece, which may involve some vocabulary swaps or more substantial changes to sentences to correct the tone. The overall aim of our editors is to ensure that your hard work gains the respect it deserves, with the focus being on the outstanding contribution your research has, rather than be flaws in language.

  • Method is unclear/ cannot be replicated
  • Analysis is confusing to the reader, preventing ease of understanding
  • Language use may not be correct, preventing the reader from focussing on content
  • Academic tone requires improvement
  • Citations or quotations are not appropriately embedded
  • Conclusions do not integrate supporting research

What to Expect

Proof Master aims to create an easy user experience. After we receive your file, it will be allocated to a suitably qualified editor. All editors hold higher-education degrees, with many holding PhD, Doctorate and Professorship qualifications across diverse backgrounds. Our editors sign Non-Disclosure Agreements prior to commencing work with us, meaning you can rest assured that your work will remain secure and confidential.

For proofreading and editing services, our editors will use the tracked changes function in Microsoft Word. This enables you to see and approve every small change they have made. Our editors may also use the comments function in Microsoft Word to bring your attention to areas they feel need further work. For businesses choosing our Document Rework service, the tracked changes function will not be used, and rewritten sections will be indicated in a different colour.

Once your editor has completed their work, your document will proceed through a final Quality Control check and you will be notified once your document is ready. You will receive two versions of your document – one showing the tracked changes and a final, ‘clean’, formatted version with any comments clearly visible for your attention. You can download your documents from the email or from the “My Order” section of the website. We aim to return all documents within the allocated deadline, hopefully giving you plenty of time to make any last-minute additions before your own final deadline.

What Our Clients Say

Fast 12 hour turn around

I spoke with the director James yesterday as I was worried that my deadline was really tight. He was able to get my work back in 12 hours. Cost a bit more but so worth it for getting my work sorted on time! The standard of work from this company is very high i’ll definately be using them again.
