    PhD Services

    Experience, Security, Confidentiality

    Our PhD services are designed to help at any stage in the preparation of a thesis or publishable paper.

    Why Us?

    Our subject specialist editors have wide experience in proofreading and editing theses, thesis proposals, journal articles, conference papers, grant proposals, etc.

    We understand that preparing your own PhD thesis or a peer-review paper for submission can a daunting task, but our expert editors have proofread and edited hundreds of PhDs and publishable papers. We’re familiar with the anxieties of clients who are working at this level and we can provide precisely the type of help you need. Our support team will discuss how best to assist and will agree everything in writing before we begin.

    Security and confidentiality are cornerstones of our business. Your documents and research are protected and we will never make your work available to anyone other than your specialist editor, our senior editor and our key support staff.

    PhD Service Options

    PhD Proofreading

    Our PhD Proofreading service provides a thorough check of your text, finding and correcting any errors of spelling, punctuation and grammar or incorrect word use.

    Proofreading is designed to be used as a final check for an already well-written document where the meaning is clear and the writing style concise.

    All corrections are made for you, and these are highlighted using track changes.

    PhD Editing

    Our PhD Academic Editing service is designed to ensure that a thesis or piece of research is presented in an appropriate academic style of English and is clear, concise and coherent throughout. It is ideal if you don’t have a naturally good writing style, or if you feel that you’re struggling to put all your ideas together coherently after years of research. It is also advisable if English is not your first language.

    What’s Included:

    PhD Proofreading
    We make a thorough check of your text, finding and correcting any errors of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

    Sentence Construction and Flow
    Where necessary, we simplify sentence construction to ensure clarity of expression.*

    We remove repetitive and redundant words and/or sentences.*

    We improve the overall style and tone of your writing to make it suitably academic.*

    We check that your in-text citation style is consistent and, if appropriate, that you have a Table of Contents and Lists of Tables and Figures with correct pagination. If included in the word count ordered, we can also check your bibliography.

    We also adjust page layout to suit your university or journal requirements. (Formatting is only available for Word documents) Example

    All corrections are made for you, and these are highlighted using track changes.

    *Please Note: We will never interfere with or change your ideas, arguments or content.

    On-going support and alterations

    Our PhD services include support beyond the initial proofread or edit.

    We understand that a PhD or publishable paper is subject to change and we regard editing this kind of text as a process rather than a one-off service.

    You are welcome to return with amendments – whether because you decide to make some ‘tweaks’ after the edit, or because your supervisor, viva panel, peer reviewers or colleagues make a suggestion or require alterations.

    We remain available to proofread or edit such changes without any further charge, provided of course that they are reasonable (up to 10% of the original word count: this is usually more than enough to cover most eventualities).

    Our Editors

    Our editors are all native-English-speaking PhD holders from the UK’s top universities.

    We select our editors based both on their ability to edit and improve your academic English and on their subject knowledge. They therefore have the experience and qualifications to make the improvements needed to produce a document which meets the exacting standards of academic English required at PhD or publishable level.

    Find Out More


    We understand that the cost of proofreading or editing is expensive for a PhD student. Our editors are passionate about new research and find thesis editing the most interesting part of their work, so we discount our normal rates (based on anticipated word count) to try and make our PhD services affordable to everyone.
