Step 2: Determine price and turnaround

Calculate how many words are in your document (this is easily done in Word), then go to our pricing page and choose
your turnaround time to determine how much your editing will cost.

Step 3: Submit your document

On the pricing page, hit 'submit' to upload your document and choose your payment option. We prefer you submit your document in
Microsoft Word format, but if you need to submit it in a different format, please email us at

If you would like to arrange an alternative submission method, please contact us.

When submitting your work, please make sure you include all relevant details including your deadline, word count, type of
(e.g., British, US, Canadian), minimum/maximum number of words required and whether you need your
references checked or modified to meet a specific format (e.g., APA, MLA, Harvard, Chicago, Oxford, etc.).

Once we receive your work we will send back an email confirming that we have received your document. If you do not receive a confirmation email please don't assume we have received your document - check with us first!

Unless you have made other arrangements with us, we must receive your payment before we begin the job.

Step 5: We edit your document

Our administrator will select the most appropriate editor to work on your document and forward it to him or her along with your
instructions. Editing begins immediately provided we have verified we have received the correct payment for your job.

For large thesis projects, your editor will contact you directly via email to introduce him/herself and make him/herself available
for any questions or concerns you may have. You will be able to communicate directly with your editor regarding any editing issues. We are considerate of our editors' time and want them to be able to focus on the editing of your documents, so all administration and payment questions should always be directed to

Step 6: We return your document

We will send two versions of your document in Microsoft Word format via email.

  1. The first version, titled "Edited", is a clean, edited copy that is ready to print, publish, or submit.

  2. The second version, titled "Critique", includes a letter from your editor outlining what changes were made and why they were made.
    Your editor may also suggest important areas to look at before printing or publishing your document.

Following this letter you will find a "tracked changes" copy of your document. This utilizes the 'Track Changes' function in Microsoft Word
and highlights the changes the editor made to your document. This allows you to view all word insertions, deletions, and modifications
made to your document.

You can view past examples of our editing work to see what a critique looks like.

Step 7: FREE Revisions if Required

In 99% of cases, clients are pleased with our work the first time. However we are very happy to revise or clarify any areas of our editing.

We perform revisions at no extra charge provided they are within the scope of the original project.

If you request additional work on new content or a change of formatting to that first requested there may be an additional charge. You will always be informed of any additional charges before we begin.
