Frequently asked questions

Is it legal to get my essay, dissertation or thesis proofread and edited?

Yes. Read our article that affirms that proofreading is allowed at the majority of UK universities. We are simply removing spelling, grammar and vocabulary issues and NOT substantively changing the document.

Does proofreading affect/change the authorship of the document?

No, you are still the author. We don’t make substantive changes to the flow, logic or argument of the document.

How long does it take to proofread my document?

In general we would be able to proofread 5,000 words a day depending on the document. We have an express service for very tight turnarounds.

How can I send my thesis?

Request a quote first and we will email you with the upload link and payment details.

Can I pay with a credit or debit card?

Yes you can using Paypal. You don’t need a Paypal account to pay this way.

Do I have to be there with you when you proofread?

No, we are an online-only service.  You upload your document on the upload page and our proofreaders will start working on it.

Can I speak to the proofreader/s directly before/after proofreading?

There is no need to speak to the proofreaders directly, we can liaise with them should you have any questions. We don’t put you in direct telephone or email contact with them to protect confidentiality.

Can I send my document in chapters?

We generally prefer to receive a whole document, but will take chapters of large documents like PhDs.

I have a thesis outline, will you write my thesis from this outline?

No, we are NOT an essay writing or model answer service. Nor do we offer paraphrasing or rewriting services.

How can I pay?

By bank transfer to our UK account or Paypal if you don’t have a UK account.

Do you only proofread theses and dissertations in London?

No, we work with students from the UK and in over 30 countries overseas.

How do you make changes to my document?

We use the “track changes” feature in Word or using sticky comments and strikethroughs if you send a PDF.

Can you proofread other documents apart from theses?

Yes, we can proofread any kind of document. Contact us to discuss.

If I add formatting to the proofreading service does it take longer?

No, it won’t take longer for short documents. For long documents such as PhDs it will add an extra 1-2 days to the turn around time.
