Language check of my PhD thesis

I received comment by the deadline that was agreed, and the comments really improved the manuscript. Even though the probably was not very familiar in the field of my research, she was able to give good comments that did not affect scientific content of my thesis. Also the price of the service was very reasonable compared to other services we have been using. Strong recommendation.

thanks and comments

Sean's proofreading is quick and helpful. I do appreciate for that. However, if there is a follow-up Q&A for the edited work, things will be more excellent. I sent my questions to the working staff of information desk last time, but there is no response.

Highly Recommend

I highly recommend the Scribbr service for editing needs. James, my editor, did a terrific job of editing my dissertation draft. He was efficient, pointed out 'the most common mistakes' and included comments in the document that were helpful to revise. The customer service team was very helpful with questions before utilizing the service and after signing up. Thank you, helping me to present my best work. ~ C. Hines

You might be familiar with a different set of editing terms. To help you understand what you can expect at Scribbr, we created this table:

Types of editingAvailable at Scribbr?
Proofreading
Correction of superficial mistakes, such as typos, misspellings, punctuation errors and consistency errors.
Yes!
This is the “proofreading” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with editing.
Copy editing
Focus on grammar, syntax, style, tone and the conventions of the field. The editor also considers the internal logic of the text and flags any obvious contradictions.
Yes!
This is the “editing” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with proofreading.
Line editing
Focus on language, style, concision and choices. The editor helps you strengthen your story, polish your sentences and ensure that your use of language drives home your ideas.
Yes!
Select the Structure Check and Clarity Check to receive a comprehensive edit equivalent to a line edit.
Developmental editing (i.e. content editing, substantive editing)
This is the first step of the editing process and applies to very early drafts. The editor helps you structure your ideas, decide what story to tell and find direction for your writing.
No.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.
