Proofreading and editing for non-native PhD & MA students

It is a great achievement to be awarded an MA or a PhD, but this involves conducting time-consuming research. Once the research is complete, it needs to be collated into a thesis in a readable and well-structured format. A thesis ought to be the candidate’s original work, but almost all candidates gather information from various scholars who have themselves researched the subject.

With a growing tendency for students to study in countries other than their own, writing a thesis for a post-graduate degree may well be in a language other than the student’s first language; for example, a student may be very competent in English, even if it is not his/her first language, but difficulties can arise in writing a thesis of an excellent literary standard. This is how a professional proofreader/editor can help.

Firstly, there are the basic matters of correct grammar, spelling and punctuation, which apply to native and non-native English speakers alike. Sometimes, grammatical mistakes can change the meaning of a sentence, which can even lead to the candidates destroying their own arguments. A professional proofreader will notice grammatical errors and will draw the candidate’s attention to any ambiguous meanings caused by incorrect spelling, grammar or punctuation.

Secondly, a good presentation of the argument is vital in a thesis. A good editor will notice if an argument is not made clearly, or if there is unnecessary repetitive material in the text. Sometimes, a thesis can be improved by changing sentence structure or replacing ‘conversational words’ by more academic words. This makes the thesis appear more professional. The English language is rich with words that have similar or even the same meanings, and there are often many ways of conveying the same thought, but usually one of these ways is better than all the others. Experienced editors are aware of this and can find the best way of expressing your argument.

Thirdly, there is the matter of citation. The correct way of including citations can be complicated, in fact there are many accepted formats for citation. It is certainly vital that the candidate chooses one citation method and keeps to it throughout the document. The professional editor will correct any mistakes in citation formats, and also if quotation marks have been incorrectly used. At the very least, it is a matter of common courtesy to acknowledge your sources and where it is obvious you have not done this, the editor will draw your attention to it. An example for this is text such as ‘Certain scholars contend that….’ or ‘According to a well-known researcher….’.

A good thesis can indeed result in a post-graduate degree, but beyond that it can result in good career prospects. With regard to a thesis written in English, it is advisable for a native English speaker to get it proofread/edited, but is indeed essential for a non-native English speaker to get the thesis professionally proofread/edited. Therefore, don't leave it to chance with a project as important as your post-graduate thesis, employ a professional proofreader/editor.

A native English speaker PhD or MA student?

Some native English-speaking students attending an undergraduate or postgraduate academic degree or programme underestimate the importance of having their essay or thesis/dissertation proofread and edited professionally before submission.

Editing and proofreading services are extremely beneficial even to native speakers of English. In fact, many of our academic clients are native English speakers. But why is it important for you, as a native speaker student or academic, to have your draft edited by a professional essay & thesis proofreading UK provider?  

For two reasons:

I): As human beings, we are naturally blind to mistakes we make whilst writing. In what we write we see only what our eyes are trained, or would like, to see. We can hardly spot any errors in a copy we have scripted. It is only through the eyes of others that we actually realise our own language flaws - that is why "a second pair of eyes" is needed and that is why professional proofreading and editing services exist.

II): Being a native English speaker is never synonymous with being able to produce a clean error-free academic copy. An essential part of the job of the academic editor or proofreader is to ensure your text is well-written, well-structured and coherent and that there are no gaps or broken narratives in your writing.

That is why, if you are submitting a research proposal, essay or dissertation to your university or an article to a peer-reviewed journal publisher, it is definitely important to get your text expertly revised, edited and scrutinised by a “second pair of eyes” before submission to increase the chances of its publication.

10 common errors in scholarly papers

As a responsible dissertation and thesis proofreading services provider, we have collated the most common and serious academic English errors and issues that our proofreaders and language specialists have addressed in the thousands of academic papers they comprehensively proofread and edited over the years.

These language mistakes, if left uncorrected in an academic manuscript, will certainly impact the value, quality as well as credibility of your academic research work.

These errors appear particularly in papers written by non-native students:

1- Grammatical errors

2- Typographical errors

3- Punctuation mistakes

4 - Mixing up British English with American or Australian English

5- Wrong use of prepositions, connectors and pronouns

6- Colloquialisms

7- Non-academic, non-idiomatic and incomprehensible language

8- Informal words, phrases and expressions not suitable in academia

9- Mistakes in in-text citations, referencing style (APA - Harvard - MLA - Chicago - OSCOLA) and bibliography (extremely common)

10- Poorly structured sentences

We have helped university students, postgraduates and academics in the following academic disciplines, among many others:

Law / Biology / Physiology / Nursing / Political science / Physics /Media / Chemistry / Engineering / Literature / Psychology / Sociology / Arts / Culture / Religion / Language / Economics / Philosophy / History / Computer science / Technology / Medicine / Agriculture

Paraphrasing Service

In addition to our dissertation proofreading and essay editing services, we provide a professional academic rewriting and paraphrasing service. This service is provided to students and academics who need to cite from other sources of literature and require a paraphrase so as to avoid falling in the trap of plagiarism - which is an extremely serious offence in academia. Our paraphrasing service is delivered by highly-qualified and skilled paraphrasers and text rewriters who will expertly and professionally rewrite and paraphrase your original text employing a different structure, different words and different style, whilst maintaining your original intended meaning in the final paraphrased version. Need help with paraphrasing? Drop us a line.

The Ultimate Proofreader is a one-stop shop for all your essay and thesis proofreading, editing and paraphrasing (rewriting) needs. Our services are 100% hassle-free.

Quality Assurance

1) Manual from start to finish

Proofreading or editing a dissertation, thesis or essay professionally requires a unique skill because of the shades and nuances of meaning and subtle differences in the English language. Genuine editing and proofreading of a text can only be done by human brains, not machines. For this reason, our text proofreading, editing and paraphrasing work is done manually from start to finish to ensure high quality service. All proof-reading services based on tools or machines are mere scams and will lead to very poor results. Period!

We  will thoroughly and professionally correct and improve your text, both semantically and syntactically, in real depth. Our high-calibre English proofreaders and editors, based in the UK, the US and around the world, bring not only many years of experience in dissertation editing and proofreading services, but also academic knowledge, information, background, and - above all - a keen eye for detail.

2) Double-reviewed

Once your document has been proofread or edited, it is then assigned to a second-layer reviewer who peruses it to fix any errors that may still lurk in the copy and was not detected and spotted by the first proofreader. This stage is aimed at providing an extra layer of scrutiny and quality assurance for our customers.

3) Track-changed/Marked-up Copy

We provide a track-changed (marked-up) copy of your academic manuscript, in addition to a clean, finalised copy ready for immediate use. The track-changed version shows you which mistakes the editor or proofreader corrected, what amendments they made, and what improvements and suggestions they introduced.

The track-changes option gives our proofreaders and editors an opportunity to ask you questions or leave critical comments if they come across anything that is unclear, contradictory or does not make sense in your text.

Complaint Procedure

Our aim is to provide proofreading, editing and paraphrasing services that are 100% satisfactory to our clients.

If, however, for any reason, you think we have not met your expectations, we have a complaint procedure in place.

This is aimed at resolving your concerns or comments and investigating any complaint you may have thoroughly in order for us to take the appropriate course of action.

Want a revision?

If you simply have a specific concern or comment and would like us to revise your document (or parts of it) again, simply email us and request a revision.

Please explain why you think your paper needs to be revised. (For instance, you found a typo, a change in meaning, a grammatical error, Americanisms in British English documents etc).  

We will revise your document and address all your concerns – at no extra cost.

Want a refund?

If you believe that your paper was not proofread, edited or paraphrased up to an acceptable and good standard and you want a partial or full refund, please do the following:

-         Provide us with specific information and reasons as to why you think your paper was not done to an acceptable level. Being as specific as possible helps us to investigate your complaint fairly and effectively

-         Back up your complaint with as much evidence as possible (for instance, highlight any parts you are not happy with in a different colour and explain why)

Your complaint will be investigated by a senior case reviewer who will promptly look into the reasons for your complaint and take an appropriate decision accordingly.
