... thesis, article, book, journal, diary, paper or story. We guarantee our work to be accurate: If we make an error, we fix it without charge. Also, we do our best to meet all our clients' timelines. A dissertation usually requires about two weeks in the spring and fall and one week in the summer and winter. Please contact us if you are working under a tight deadline. As with all of our services, we charge $54 per hour for editing and proofreading. The price per double-spaced page varies depending on a variety of factors including the topic, the degree of technical or statistical material, the number of suggestions required and the number of references. If you would like us to estimate the cost of a particular project, please contact us at one of the addresses below. If you are new to our services, we would be happy to read two to four pages as a free sample. Additionally, we are happy to do any typing that our editing clients require.
The staff are very professional and nice to work with.

Ways to save money
- The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA)

- The Modern Language Society Style Manual (MLA)
- University-, Publisher-, and Journal-specific author guidelines.
Time spent that does not save much money
- Polish the prose. Read your manuscript out loud. Make sure your sentences are complete thoughts and that they say what you mean to say.
- Check your citations: Are they in the reference list? Are they spelled right? Are all the authors listed? Is the year right?
- Check your references: Are they cited in the text? Do the journal articles and book chapters have a page range, not just the first page? Have you listed all authors?
- Make sure every table, figure, and appendix is mentioned in the text and that each has a title.
- Don't spend time on the table of contents or lists of tables and figures. Unless you know how to make Word insert an automatic table of contents, we will delete whatever you do and start from scratch. Doing so takes very little time and produces much better results than the manual method.
- Don't set up your tables with spaces. If you don't know how to use Word's table feature, insert the data with tabs separating the columns and do nothing more. We will convert the tabs to a Word table and format it to conform to the guidelines.
- Don't use carriage returns or tabs to make a paragraph look the way you want it to look. If you can't figure it out, leave it as a block paragraph and we will format it using the robust tools provided by Word.
- If you don't have a firm grasp on its use, don't worry about the use of "et al."
