How To Find A Trustworthy Dissertation Editing Company: Directions For Students


A dissertation is one of the most important academic achievements, therefore, it needs to be your best work. It will create the first impression about you in your professional field. A well-written dissertation is a big step forward towards your future career.

When writing a dissertation you spend hours and hours in the libraries or internet databases preparing your final draft. You have done extensive research on the subject, had countless meetings with your supervisor, and finally you need your dissertation to be edited. The truth is, every time you reread your work, you will find something that needs rewriting or changing. What is more, with every rewriting there is a possibility to improve your paper. The biggest question is – are you sure about what needs to be changed and what should stay as it is? If you are not, then professional editing help is just what you need.

There are countless editing companies online that offer their services. The biggest challenge is to find a reliable dissertation editing company that you can trust your scholarly work to. Here are some tips on how you can find a trustworthy editing service.

  • Look for a professional in your particular field of study. While there are many good editors that can offer their help, not all of them know the subject that you have written about. You don’t want a chemistry professional to edit your literature dissertation, do you? Thus, the first thing you should find out is if the editing service has the professional that you need.
  • Check out the editing service website. Is the company old enough and has a lot of returning customers? Are there positive responses from the clients? The website is the company’s image. If you find grammatical errors, or if the person you are communicating with is not very polite, then it is a bad sign and you should stay away from such company.
  • Find out about the payment methods of the company. Make sure that they do not ask for personal information. Check the prices. If the fees are too low then there is a high probability that this is unprofessional service that is looking to make quick money.
  • Make sure that you will be able to stay in touch with the editor throughout the whole editing process. If some new information comes up, or you will have some questions, you should always have the opportunity to get in touch with the editor.
  • Find the company that employs native English speakers as editors.
