Thesis Editing Services for Students

As part of our thesis editing service, The Expert Editor has edited numerous honours, master’s, doctoral and postdoctoral theses and dissertations.

The Expert Editor is a popular professional editing option for students in Australia and overseas because of our affordability and flexibility.

We have considerable experience in assisting students who have written a thesis or dissertation in their second language. The biggest hurdle to academic success faced by ESL students in Australia and overseas is their English language proficiency. Our service is designed to ensure that ESL students overcome this challenge and produce a quality thesis. 

We also help many native-English speaking students. Even for a confident writer, a thesis is such a huge undertaking that a student inevitably becomes “blind” to spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes, language inconsistency, ambiguous expression and referencing style errors.

The Expert Editor’s thesis editing service is designed to improve the overall quality of academic writing and ensure adherence to referencing style conventions.

We abide by The Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) guidelines for editing research theses, and therefore cannot assist with content. If you require help with the formatting of your document, please contact us and outline your requirements (extra charges may apply).

Students retain complete control over their work. The Expert Editor edits Microsoft Word documents using the track changes tool so all our changes are clearly visible, with suggestions and comments made in the margin. We can also edit theses or dissertations in PDF using Adobe’s PDF editor.

At the completion of each job, students receive the following:

  • Track changes copy of the document, with the changes clearly marked up.
  • Clean copy with all the changes already incorporated.

Professional editors

The Expert Editor employs professional Australian-based academic editors who have considerable experience editing theses and dissertations. Each editor has high-level academic qualifications – either a PhD or Master’s degree – and many have additional qualifications in professional editing. They are equally adept at editing British or American English.
