Dissertation Editing & Proofreading Services
*Your dissertation editing, proofreading, and formatting will be approved by both your committee and school.
If not, we'll refund the full amount paid, no questions asked. We're proud to say, in seventeen years, we have never had to pay a refund.
The vast majority of theses fail to conform fully to the required citation style. This is one of the main reasons for rewrite after rewrite, leading to lost time, considerable cost, delays in the job search or even failing to graduate. We are here to manage that process and to help secure committee approval for you.

Dissertation Editing and Proofreading Service
What's involved in proofreading
We examine your dissertation to remove errors in spelling, agreement, and punctuation. Mistakes in grammar can come across as errors in logic since they certainly confuse the reader, making it appear that the premises of your dissertation are disconnected or flawed. Dissertation proofreading focuses on catching the errors such as sentence fragments, subject-verb agreement, pronoun referents, run-ons, ineffective or inappropriate verb forms, and other grammatical errors, especially the ones Microsoft Word's spelling and grammar check routinely ignores.
What's involved in editing
Our dissertation editing service focuses on these components in the editing process:
- Advice and counsel:
We take scrupulous care of your dissertation. To accomplish this, as we work on your document, you will have continual access to your dissertation editor. We believe communication is an indispensable component of a superior editing service.
- Overall structural consistency:
If needed, in this phase of editing, we craft paragraph development phrases. These strengthen the relationship between ideas, helping to ensure that your argument provides clear support for your conclusions.
- Voice and style:
Once your dissertation is structurally complete, we work to enhance your distinctive voice and style, removing ambiguous or inappropriate words and phrases and replacing them with ones that are specific and apposite. This makes your writing more professional and more consistent.

Why we proof and edit
Some students find it difficult to control being too verbose. Some are not quite sure what to include and what to leave out. Often, writers are so engaged in their own work that they fill pages with a great deal of information but fail to organize their work properly or express themselves with the best word choice. We specialize in beautifying language, and transforming drafts into the dissertation you want.
Dissertation Formatting Service
We have a dissertation formatting service in addition to dissertation editing and proofreading. We prepare your doctoral dissertation according to the latest version of your style guide. We can also accommodate your university-specific guidelines. Combined with proofreading and editing, after our formatting service, you have a fully paginated version of your dissertation with preliminary pages, headings, citations, and references in proper form and arrangement. Additionally, a citation to reference verification is made to note when citations are not in the reference section and references are not in the body of the dissertation as in-text citations.

I’m writing to tell you that you did a great job on my Ph.D. dissertation. I thought it would take a couple of weeks. Wow. You did a remarkable job in a short time. You are well worth it. God bless.
Dissertation defense on March 17... Will keep you posted! I will refer your company to others. You were a God-send!!!
(Traci passed her dissertation defense with flying colors)
I heard from the form and style review person, two levels above my committee. She said she would return my thesis by the end of the day tomorrow. I can't remember if I told you that I have a five on three separate sections, those granted by the reader approved with commendation. So, my friends, I am truly grateful. Again, thank you.
Could you please pass my thanks on to the dissertation editor and corrector. She did a fantastic job. She really considered content and grammar. Best wishes, -Todd
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! I went through all of the editing changes made to my dissertation.
Thanks for all your help with my dissertation. I just wish I had found you sooner.
My dissertation has been delivered to my committee~~ yippee!! Never could have been done without your great assistance!!! I look forward to using your service throughout this entire dissertation process. :) Have a nice evening, I'm going to celebrate.
When I was searching for someone to format and proofread my dissertation, I checked five or six sites on the Internet. I could not thank you enough for a job well done!
I have the final draft from you. I appreciate your comments. Your dissertation formatting is a lifesaver. Thanks
Thanks so much. WordSharp is the best. Hopefully I will get this next version approved. I read the corrections and the writing editor did a truly amazing job of fixing my "hidden verbs" and split infinitives. Just my luck to have an English major on the committee! I also appreciated the writing editor's suggestions on content, which I'll review and refine as well. After spending so long looking at the same pages, I'm at the stage where what is on the page is not what I am seeing.
Hi--I have used your service previously to edit my dissertation proposal and your claims are 100% accurate. My proposal was approved shortly after. My husband has used your service and I have recommended it to the other doctoral candidates who are writing their dissertation! Ok that aside I have completed my sections 4 and 5 and need them edited (full editing as before).
Thank you for the timely turnarounds through the dissertation editing process. Warmest regards,
We asked Dianna if she was excited about being almost finished. This is what she said:
I am very excited!!! Thank you. I used your services for my proposal so I am confident I will pass.
