Who better to hand over your document to than an academic editor who understands precisely what you are experiencing (all of our editors have been on this journey themselves) and who can cast a fresh set of expert eyes over your research writing?
Our strong professional relationship with all Australian universities means that we are well placed to provide you with exactly the support you need to ensure your document is edited to the highest professional standards, strictly following your university or departmental guidelines, and to the tightest of deadlines.

Elite Editing’s full thesis editing service ensures coherence, competence, compliance and consistency in your document. Your thesis or dissertation will be assigned to an academic editor who is an expert in your field. Many of our editors will have published academic papers in your discipline and will be able to advise you on appropriate academic tone and language for your topic.
Your editor will check your document for logical flow and articulation of argument; ensure flawless spelling, punctuation and grammar; implement or check for professional layout and formatting according to university or faculty guidelines; leave no stone unturned to produce perfect references according to your chosen style; and ensure that your style, language, tone and key terms are absolutely consistent throughout. When formatting your thesis or dissertation, your editor will build you a fully automatic table of contents, list of tables and list of figures, apply thesis margins for printing according to your universities specifications, ensure that all tables and figures are neatly and correctly placed within the margins, and check that your preliminary pages and appendices conform to the overall style of the document.
If you have written a thesis by publication, we are adept at transforming the thesis elements into a cohesive whole regarding style and formatting, and we can work with you to follow your specific instructions. Alternatively, we can help you extract key chapters from your completed thesis and turn them into flawlessly presented articles styled for submission to the top-ranking peer-reviewed journals, according to their author guidelines.
If you feel that your document requires only the lightest touch to make it shine, we also offer a proofreading service at a lower cost. Although we do not usually recommend this service to students who are writing in English as an additional language, we are always happy to assess your document for you so that we can guide you towards the appropriate level of service for your thesis.
In all our editing for students, Elite Editing upholds and applies the Guidelines for Editing Research Theses, to which your university will also be a party, and the Australian Standards for Editing Practice.

I had my 70,000-word PhD thesis edited promptly and to an exceptional standard by Elite Editing. It sped up my completion date and helped me finish on time, which is the most important thing. The service was fantastic with excellent communication; so I was informed at each stage of the process. I would recommend Elite Editing to everyone, especially those who are close to completing their thesis.
