Service Description

I will proof-read and edit your research proposals, conference papers, theses, or academic and other publications efficiently and professionally. I can also format your document and generate an automatic table of contents.

My preferred method is MS Word's "Track Changes" tool. This allows you to submit your document to me electronically wherever you are and to see your original work (and the changes I make). The tool also allows you to accept some or all of the suggested changes.

When editing your document, I will
* check that your grammar and spelling is correct
* ensure that the style you use throughout your document is consistent.
* check that all the references in your document are correct according to the chosen referencing method. It is, however, not my responsibility to check whether or not the document contains your own, original work and I will not be held accountable for any plagiarism committed.

I cannot and will not check the validity of your statements/research/arguments.

Editing does not improve the factual content of your document.

Your responsibility:
*Final responsibility for the meaning and use of the document belongs to the student or client. You must carefully read through your edited document to ensure that the meaning has not been inadvertently changed in the editing process. You should also consider all editorial suggestions and questions and respond to them.
