What We Cover In Every Edit

We take care of both editing and proofreading, including the following:

  • Undertake light rewriting of poorly presented sentences to improve readability and ease of understanding. If substantial rewriting is required, we provide suggestions for improvement.
  • Highlight areas where clarification and additional explanation is needed.
  • Ensure that your in-text references are in the correct style* and are included in the end-text references.
  • Ensure that your reference list is in the correct format*.
  • Highlight areas where additional references are needed (e.g. sweeping statements/unfounded arguments).
  • Generate the table of contents page, list of figures and tables.
  • Ensure consistent style figure and table captions.
  • Insert captions where we are able to or highlight areas where captions are needed.
  • Ensure consistency of heading levels and styles.
  • Ensure correct page numbering (e.g. roman numerals for pre-matter).
  • Ensure that your format/page layout is in line with your institute’s requirements*

* You will need to provide us with your institution’s requirements for these points.
