Do you provide a clean copy of my document?
No, we do not provide you with a clean copy. You will always receive a file edited with tracked changes.
We do this for two main reasons:
- In most papers, there are sentences that the editor cannot edit without additional information from the author. In these cases, your editor will provide guidance but leave you to implement the feedback. If we were to simply accept the changes for you, then these issues would be left unaddressed.
- We believe students should be accountable for their work. Our editors can correct language errors and coach you to be a better writer. However, the end product belongs to you and should reflect your ideas and decisions.
