Line Editing Service

Line editing, our most commonly requested editorial service, takes full advantage of the doctoral-level expertise all of our editors have to offer. Our editors are equipped to assist scholars and academics with a variety of projects in need of developmental feedback, including early-stage doctoral proposals, thesis chapters, or an article in development for publication.

Critical review and feedback on the strength of a paper's argument and structure is one of our client’s most common requests when seeking editing services.

I was struggling with the incorporation of tables and figures into my thesis and my university provided no help. I found Thesis Editor by accident; I would recommend their service to anyone in similar difficulties.  They not only assisted with tables and figures but also with formatting according to UK requirements (I am an American non-resident student).  The response time was excellent and Dr. Dawn Leach always met strict deadlines.  Altogether an excellent way to get help with the details of the dissertation process.
