proofreading-and-editing

Proofreading and editing

An experienced editor gives feedback on consistency, tone, and bias-free language, and directly improves things like:

  • Spelling and grammar
  • Punctuation and abbreviations
  • Capitalization
  • Sentence structure

You can rest assured that your text follows APA standards and the conventions of your field.

Paper-formatting

Paper formatting

Applying APA format correctly can be a daunting task, but our APA paper formatting experts do it every day. Whether it’s a student paper or a manuscript, we will make sure the format is compliant with APA guidelines regarding:

  • Margins, line spacing, and indentation
  • Font and headings
  • Running head and page numbering
  • and more

APA Paper Formatting  costs $1.20 per page and can be purchased separately or in combination with Proofreading & Editing.

Citation-editing

Citation editing

Your citation expert will ensure that your in-text citations and references are correctly formatted and cross-checked. This includes:

  • Checking capitalization, italicization, and punctuation
  • Providing feedback on incomplete references
  • Improving your reference list’s overall layout

Citation Editing costs $2.75 per source and can be purchased separately or in combination with Proofreading & Editing.

Your team of APA experts

Instead of just one editor, we work with three experts, one for each discipline: language, formatting, references.

Every expert has years of experience in their field so they know the APA guidelines by heart, down to the smallest details and the rarest exceptions.

We put in the extra effort to coordinate these experts because we believe it’s worth it to guarantee the best possible result.

Satisfied

I was hesitant to use such a service on the Internet, but in the end I was really satisfied with the quality of the proofreading. It is quite expensive, but I think the price is reasonable for the professional service.

An excellent proofreading service. The editors were thorough, friendly and gave advice on subtle changes I could make to improve the quality of my expression. I would recommend this service to anyone who needs a second pair of eyes on a substantive writing project.

Very good service

Very good service! When I saw the price, I was a little shocked at first. However, now that I have seen the work behind the corrections, I find it justified. I could really learn a lot from the hints and have learned a lot about scientific work. If you have the money, I really recommend it!

A strong 4

The process was really simple and I got some advice and help with better grammar and structure of sentences. The customers service was also excellent in helping me with some questions. I want to give it a strong 4, the reason for this is that it helped a lot but my teacher still had some notes on grammar/sentences after the corrections of this service

Highest praise and gratitude for this service

I cannot remotely begin to adequately express how grateful I am that this service is available and for the hard work of the editing team. The customizable options are absolutely phenomenal; the 24hour option is truly live saving. The user friendly website, process of looking at information for what services I needed, information to understand how the process would work, uploading my documents, options to add notes, timely emails, and ease of accessing the revised documents was truly an impressive service. The comments on my 'most common mistakes' is a resource I will be able to use going forward to improve my writing skills, so helpful! I would highly recommend this service to anyone and everyone (maybe don't wait until your project deadline is 2 days away, but if that does happen to you like it did me, you will be so thankful for choosing this service!)
