Thesis Editing

Don’t let errors cause your thesis quality to falter at the last hurdle! A thesis represents many years of intensive research. Perhaps it is your first foray into academic publication. Elite Editing understands the enormous amount of time you have invested and the challenges you have overcome to reach this critical stage in your academic journey.

Coherent presentation of arguments and accurate thesis editing and proofreading are essential at this point. Only a fresh yet experienced pair of eyes can truly provide the clear, accurate thesis editing you need. Here lies the value of having your thesis reviewed by Elite Editing. Our dedicated thesis editing service ensures word perfection and professional layout in this foremost document of your academic career. Your thesis will be treated by us with the care it deserves.

Thesis editing by specialist eyes

Elite Editing thesis editors are the most accomplished in the business and fluent in the many conventions of thesis editing and writing. We have meticulously proofread and copyedited work for countless postgraduate candidates over many years. So we understand firsthand the ‘error blindness’ that even the most accomplished authors face on such intensive projects.

Our expert academic editors are not only highly qualified in academia themselves; they have also received rigorous in-house training covering all aspects of specialist academic editing, from appropriate conventions of academic language and tone to in-depth referencing knowledge of all styles, including all arts, science and legal conventions. Our thorough editing and proofreading ensures your text is error free and compliant with all style requirements, including stringent university thesis presentation requirements. In addition, with a fresh perspective, we apply specialist thesis editing to ensure all arguments are clearly articulated. We work quickly and efficiently to return a publication-worthy thesis that retains your distinctive voice.

Beat error blindness with professional thesis editing

You and your thesis need some distance! When you’ve shared such a long-term relationship, it is almost impossible to see the errors in your own work. Your eye will tend to see what it expects to see instead of what is actually there. Don’t chance typos, confusing sentences or jumbled ideas going under the radar. Elite Editing brings a fresh set of experienced academic eyes to edit and proofread your thesis thoroughly.

Our full thesis editing service ensures:

  • Coherence – logical flow and articulation of all presented arguments
  • Competence – flawless grammar, spelling and punctuation
  • Compliance – accurate layout and format according to academic conventions
  • Consistency – uniformity of style, language, key terms and referencing throughout

We’ll even perform some of the most labour-intensive thesis preparation tasks on your behalf. We will:

  • Create a compliant Table of Contents, List of Figures and List of Tables
  • Correctly place, format and number all thesis figures and tables
  • Create university-specific preliminary pages in the correct order and format for a thesis.
  • Cross-check all abbreviations, ensure correct usage and create a List of Abbreviations
  • Satisfy specified university formatting guidelines or format to generally accepted academic standards
  • Cross-check all in-text citations against end reference lists
  • Detect any missing information in the reference list
  • Format your appendices for internal consistency
  • Uphold all requirements of the ‘Guidelines for Editing Research Theses‘, the Australian Standards for Editing Practice

     and any department-specific thesis editing policies

Impeccable client support

Elite Editing puts academic writers first and we keep the communication channels open. If required, your editor will contact you to raise any questions about your thesis editing.

Thank you for the highly skilled editing service provided for my thesis. I am thrilled with the formatting and the greatly improved presentation, including tables and figures. The attention to detail in identifying errors and lack of clarity throughout is much appreciated. The reference list obviously need a lot attention too and I’m grateful for the patience shown in addressing missing information.

As a PhD student and a single mum of 2 small children, meeting the deadline for submission has been a challenge. To be able to send my thesis to Elite Editing and know that my thesis will come back to me 300% better was such a relief. The quality of work that I received was amazing....can not thank you enough for the tremendous work you have completed to my thesis. Thank you

I would highly recommend Elite Editing!!!. Not only Elite Editing copy edit my thesis to an acedemic writing standard, they also formatted my thesis to an APA standard. On top of that Elite Editing also formatted my entire thesis according to my University requirement which the editor downloaded from my university website, how cool is that. In addition to that, the editor read in detail all my references, format it and let me know if they were any references missing in the text I should add at the end. This saves a lot of my time since the final stages of PhD is extremely stressful. I would defenitely use Elite Editing again in the future.

Elite Editing were exceptional. The assistance I received from Peter initially, then Maise and Kellyanne was beyond what was expected. I made last minute changes and needed help quickly which was no problem for the team at Elite. I am extremely grateful and would certainly recommend to anyone who needs fast, polite and understanding service.
