Thesis Development

Copy-editing services

Fine-tune your doctoral thesis for submission

Our copy-editing services will ensure correct grammar, punctuation and English spelling consistency; aiming to eliminate errors whilst also improving the language and academic tone of your doctoral thesis proposal, thesis draft chapters, or the full doctoral thesis. We will also look to broaden your lexical choice and vocabulary to improve your sentence and paragraph structure, as well as the syntax. As much as possible, we will suggest wordiness and redundancy/repetition for you to consider removing. We will not correct but will highlight format guide such as referencing style used, although we will provide examples for reference should an issue be found.

Our copy-editing service will be provided by a native English-speaking professional who is familiar with both, the business and research writing standards.

You can sign up for your copy-editing support either for your full doctoral thesis, or on-demand for your thesis draft chapters or your doctoral research proposal drafts. For those who are on a self-study path, we provide the DoctorateHub Clubs for you to connect with your peers to jointly progress and support each other.

Self-study Clubs with peer support and moderation

Do you prefer to obtain feedback on your latest drafts and develop your research further with peers? It takes time and practice to become a fluent researcher, develop the ability to establish a research focus and to derive a narrative from there. Wherever you are in this process, you might want to team up with peers to not feel as though you are walking alone. The DoctorateHub Clubs are a great place to team up with peers. You can join an existing club or set one up that is tailored to your needs.

Full Thesis Copy-editing

The full thesis copy-editing service includes a single review cycle with a written report covering feedback and recommendations. We will return your full thesis back to you in two (2) separate documents – the thesis with all the track changes and comments, as well as a report which summarises feedback and recommendations. The full thesis review is followed by a Q&A via email and a video-orientation call as required.

With this service however, we are only doing a copy editing and not thesis review * of the content per se.

For the full thesis copy-editing process to be most effective, it is recommended you use this service only when a near-final version of the thesis is available. The full thesis document should be sent in either Microsoft word, or Open Document format.

The standard turnaround time for copy editing is 15 working days (3 weeks). Shorter turnaround times might be arranged for at additional charges and are subject to agreement.

*Please note that the full thesis copy-editing does not include a thesis review. We can offer a thesis review as an additional service if required. To learn more please go to the thesis review service.

On-demand Copy-editing

On-demand copy-editing can be provided as written feedback on your thesis proposal and your thesis chapter drafts, as well as through targeted video-orientation calls that help you in clarifying writing and editorial matters. This allows you to get feedback, guidance and direction on current developments and prepare for your next actions.
