Publishing with Precision
Even high-quality research takes on little value when described in poorly written prose that often leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation—instead of publication.
Reliable and Affordable Service
We match the right academic editor to your needs. With preparation from academic professionals, your manuscript or journal article will conform to your precise standards.
The help you need, when you need it.
Editing your article, manuscript or thesis requires a thorough examination of the text for concision, consistency and clarity after a complete and thorough proofreading.
Specialists specifically focus on your required citation style (whether APA, MLA, Chicago Style (CSM), Canadian styles, Harvard, Turabian, International English, ASA, AMA, Australian, Vancouver, Oxford Style or another citation style of your choosing). They can easily handle citation style guides from your school; arrange reference materials; make sure direct quotes are cited; and examine in-text citations to make sure they appear in your reference section or bibliography.

Earning a Ph.D. requires years of concentrated and meticulous effort. Becoming a professional scholar, theorist and writer involves doctoral coursework in which the candidate must continually research, write and present studies of academic article length and quality assessed by professors who are experts in their field. The doctoral candidate then undertakes a two-day-long process called comprehensive examinations, which consist of writing broadly in a number of disciplinary areas. A committee of experts on each subject critiques the exams regarding the substantiveness and quality of content, construction, organization and prose. Only those Ph.D. candidates who pass this stage are allowed to design, write and publish a book-length primary research study called a dissertation. Again, a committee of Ph.D.s with specific expertise in the named areas evaluates the candidate's writing. To confer the doctoral degree, they require flawlessness and excellence. This arduous process prepares us to be true editors and writers, while a Master's degree — which each of us have as well — simply does not.
