£18.99 per 1,000 words

At Proof Master, we have developed our Dissertation Editing services so that academics can submit their work with confidence in the clarity and strength of their arguments. With the amount of pressure that naturally stems from a work that takes such a large amount of time and effort to achieve, it can be easy to be stressed when there are still areas that you are not happy with when you reach your final draft.

By providing a fresh and professional perspective on your work, our editors are able to quickly identify and address the areas that may confuse readers. Having likely read your work countless times, it is easy to miss the places or ideas that may confuse those that are reading it for the first time.

Dissertation Editing Services Overview

Fundamentally, our Dissertation Editing service provides an in-depth edit of your work. This will range from correcting simple grammar and spelling errors to a broader restructuring of your work. This means that both technical issues and the overall arguments covered in your research will be addressed evenly so that it works sentence-by-sentence and across paragraphs. Your editor will also ensure that the tone of your writing is appropriate for such a prestigious piece, with vocabulary often being swapped out for more technical terminology in places. The end result will do your arguments justice by communicating your ideas in a clear and sophisticated manner unobscured by silly writing errors.

  • 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

At Proof Master, we aim to offer Dissertation Editing services that are simple to use for all of our clients. To begin, simply send over your dissertation, thesis, or publication, and we will find an editor that is well-suited to your work’s requirements. With all of our editors coming from a wide range of academic and sector backgrounds, we are confident that we will provide an editor that is more than capable of assisting you. This means that, no matter how technical the language used or ideas discussed, your arguments will also be addressed thoroughly. For a comprehensive approach that goes deep in the technical details whilst addressing your work as a whole, we recommend combining our editing service with our Dissertation Proofreading service. When it comes to your work, you can also rest assured that your privacy will be paramount. This is because, at Proof Master, all of our editors are required to sign a Non-Disclosure agreement before beginning any editing work.

In terms of the specifics of how your edited document will be received, you will receive two documents: one that features Microsoft Word’s Tracked Changes function and another “clean”, formatted version with comments made clearly visible. The Tracked Changes feature of Word is used for all of our services, apart from our Document Rework service, as it makes clear any alterations made whilst allowing you to compare them with the original quickly and easily. Prior to receiving your edited work, it will have passed through a final Quality Control check to ensure that there are absolutely no errors made before sending it to you.

You will be notified when your document is finished with the edited version downloadable from either your email or the “My Order” section of your account. We always aim to have work returned within the allotted timeframe but, should there be any cause for delay, you will be notified straight away.
