We are a group of five academics in law, the social sciences, and the humanities who provide top-tier academic editing to undergraduates, postgraduates, and fellow academics, as well as in-depth editorial services to policy researchers. We have more than 15 years of experience as editors and proofreaders and have worked on a wide range of projects. We specialize in editing and proofreading master's and doctoral theses and dissertations, but are always happy to edit essays of any length.
We have two streams of editorial work:
A. General Proofreading
General Proofreading corrects grammar, punctuation, formatting, verb tenses, phrasing, sentence construction, and word usage. We can also correct for house style and other formatting issues, as well as reference-checks and indexing. We also change sentences that sound awkward and will highlight parts of the text where the meaning is too vague to be edited or rewritten. All changes are tracked and subsequent rounds of revision come at no extra cost.
B. Thorough Editing
Thorough Editing involves two rounds of work: (1) a rigorous review of the work's logic, organization, and whether the research supports the argumentation; and (2) a more fine-grained reading to check for the mechanical elements of language covered under General Proofreading. We will also improve the dissertation's syntax, style, and flow. All changes are tracked and subsequent rounds of revision come at no extra cost.

Thank you for reading and all the best with your work.
The main chapters of a dissertation are: introduction, literature review, methodology, findings, analysis, conclusion and recommendations. To save time and allow for a fluid process, you can present the same introduction and methodology that you submit in your research proposal, but remember to change the tense to past tense. You may also use the same literature review presented in the proposal, but this should be expanded to include at least 20-30 authors and 5-6 sources. Furthermore, the literature should be critically reviewed by including your own opinion of the presented theories and by incorporating evidence of theoretical debate.
