Formatting Services

Formatting your thesis can be frustrating, to say the least. Supervisors and committees can be excruciatingly particular when it comes to formatting; it is not unusual for PhD students to have their document returned dozens of times to correct minor typographical errors or style inconsistencies. Making the process even more daunting, University guides and style manuals are typically long, detailed, and nuanced.


Our team of editors have years of formatting experience and will ensure that your thesis or dissertation is formatted correctly—the first time. All we need is a draft, your University style guide, and we will take care of the rest.

Students often find formatting to be the most frustrating part of writing their dissertations, as they are primarily focussed on getting their ideas down on paper, rather than getting page numbers in the right spot and the headings accurate and uniform.

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.
