Great! You received the edited document from your editor. Now it’s time to process the suggestions. Luckily, this is a piece of cake. In only two steps, you can make sure you get the most out of your editor’s feedback.

Step 1

Accept the changes

Start accepting the editor’s changes and implementing the feedback in the comments. You can accept or reject each change by clicking “Accept” or “Reject.” When you accept a change, always check that the grammar and punctuation (spaces, commas and periods) are correct. Additionally, check to make sure that each sentence conveys what you intended it to say. After you click “Accept” or “Reject,” you will automatically be directed to the next change.

You can delete the comments one by one by clicking “Delete.” You can also right-click on the comment to delete it.

Step 2

Perform one final check

When you are done accepting and rejecting the changes, it is wise to do a final pass to ensure you’ve processed each correction and suggestion. Click on “Revisions” below “Final: Show Markup.” This will allow you to see all the remaining changes and comments in the document.

Don’t forget to do a final spell check to ensure your text is free of common errors, such as duplicated punctuation and double spaces. Once you’ve processed all the changes and deleted all the comments, the changes will no longer be visible to others. You can submit this document as your final version!

Two final tips

  1. Read your final version one last time to make sure everything is as you’d like.
  2. Save your document as a .pdf file to come across more professional and to ensure the layout doesn’t change.

You will receive a notification via text message and email as soon as your thesis has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

Can I upload my thesis in sections?

Yes, you can upload your thesis in sections.

We try our best to ensure that the same editor checks all the different sections of your thesis. When you upload a new file, our system recognizes you as a returning customer, and we immediately contact the editor who helped you before.

However, we cannot guarantee that the same editor will be available. Your chances are higher if

  1. You send us your text as soon as possible and
  2. You can be flexible about the deadline.

Please note that the shorter your deadline is, the bigger the risk that your previous editor is not available.

If your previous editor isn’t available, then we will inform you immediately and look for another qualified editor. Fear not! Every Scribbr editor follows the Scribbr Improvement Model and will deliver high-quality work.

However, every editor has a slightly different editing style, so you may notice small inconsistencies in editing choices. As with every proofreading order, be sure to carefully review your editor’s changes and suggestions as you finalize your text to ensure that everything is as you want it.
Can I have my thesis edited during weekends and holidays?

Yes, our editors also work during the weekends and holidays.

Because we have many editors available, we can check your thesis 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. This includes weekends and holidays.

Do you choose for a 72 hour deadline and do you upload your thesis on a Thursday evening? Then you will have your thesis back by Sunday evening!
