How To Find A Good Dissertation Proofreading Service

Writing a dissertation can create a significant amount of stress, especially when it comes to proofreading and editing the project. After you have spent days, weeks, and months working on your dissertation, proofreading the project yourself can be overwhelming, simply because you have seen the words, phrases, and sentences for so long. When you are ready to have your paper proofread, you need to find a reliable service, which can be almost as stressful as writing the paper itself. Here are some tips:

  1. Ask your classmates: Since all of the other people in your courses are writing dissertations, they might have a good resource to share. It never hurts to ask, even if you do not know the classmates very well. You might even be able to find a classmate who is willing to proofread your work if you will edit his or her work, too.

  2. Ask your professor: Professors and dissertation committee members are some of the best resources because they have been giving this type of advice for years. Your instructors will not edit your work, but they usually know local resources that students like you can use.

  3. Look at college job boards: At nearly every college and university, there are students who are looking for work, like proofreading. Many students who major in writing are game for editing projects like your dissertation.

  4. Hire an editing service: If you look online for a service that will edit and revise your dissertation, you will find more companies than you can imagine. It is not possible to investigate every company to see if they offer a good deal and a good service, there are a few things you can look for, like no spelling or grammar errors on their pages. You should be able to look at projects that have already been completed and you should be able to talk to someone at the company. When you talk to someone at the company, ask about the qualifications of the person who will proofread your paper. If that person does not have satisfactory credential, then you should move on to another company.

  5. Check into freelancing websites: These websites are full of professional writers and editors who are looking for work. They know what they are doing and they charge reasonable prices. You can post a job and then wait for the applications to come in so you can choose from several highly qualified candidates.
