My thesis and dissertation proofreading and editing service is designed to polish your thesis or dissertation to ensure it's ready for publication. Canadian universities use a mixture of British and American spellings and styles, and Canadian students earn degrees at universities around the world. Why trust your hard work to some American editing mill? You are an important and unique client to iProof. Although I specialize in editing for Canadian graduate students, I also serve clients globally. From Greenland to Capetown, I've had clients from every continent (except Antarctica).

iProof.ca is not a big business. I love words and I love learning, so I offer this proofreading service to assist others to achieve academic goals. I give every thesis my personal attention. Occasionally, I have someone help me, but I consider that every document I work on reflects on my personal reputation. I have helped numerous students complete academic documents from general essays to doctoral dissertations. Request an estimate.
My standard time to edit your thesis or dissertation is 8000 words per 24 hours with a minimum of 48 hours. That's not to say I can't sometimes work faster, but a faster turnaround time depends on what other obligations I have, as well as seeing a sample of your writing. Use the thesis estimate request form, and I will give you:
You can place an order for thesis editing without requesting a sample if your thesis is not much more than 10,000 words long. But be aware that there is a chance I will return your thesis and fee, if your thesis is not ready for final editing, or I am too busy right now (check my calendar). Once you place your order, your completed thesis will be returned in just a few days. The guaranteed return time is calculated right on your order form before you pay. Order Thesis Editing Now
If you include the reference page in the word count of the thesis, then I will ensure that all the reference entries are formatted correctly as part of the quoted price. If you are confident that the references are correct, you can leave the references off the word count, and I won't touch the reference page. For the first group, I assume you know enough about your academic style that most entries are mostly correct. I'll request that you pay a surcharge if your reference list looks like you haven't even tried. If you only want me to fix your reference list, then I will charge an hourly rate of $50 per hour. For help with APA, MLA, Chicago and other styles, I recommend the resources at the Purdue Writing Lab (OWL) or check out my pages on APA style.
Scientific and technical dissertations are often written using the publishing tool LaTeX and exported as pdf documents. pdf documents are not suitable for editing, but I can edit documents directly in LaTeX. You will need to estimate the word count exclusive of all formulas. Obviously, I can't edit or proofread any formulas or code. I will fix grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as above. I use OverLeaf, so if you have a paid account, you can share your document with me and see the Track Changes. Otherwise, I cannot provide Track Changes for LaTeX documents.
I can make minor changes to pdf documents, but editing a thesis in pdf is impractical. You need to supply the thesis in the format in which it was created. I can edit documents created in MS word, Apple Pages, and LaTeX (see above). If you send the sample edit in pdf, I will provide a shorter sample edit. Converting a pdf document to Word is not practical because the process introduces numerous errors that make the editing a lot more work.
My thesis editing price is similar to my advanced editing price, except you get a discount for the large order. The first 6000 words are priced at 2.75 cents per word ($165.00) and additional words are priced at 2 cents per word. The minimum price for a thesis is $165. I have completed thesis projects as short as 6000 words and as long as 75,000 words. If your thesis is shorter than 6000 words, order the essay editing service. No project is too big or too small (sometimes I don't have time for a very big one). Thesis editing includes all copyediting related to style, logic, syntax and wording. I can ensure your references are correctly formatted and your words make sense. Unlike many other services, I do not charge extra if you use English as a second language (see below). Request a 1000 word sample edit when you order my thesis proofreading service so you can check out our work before you pay.

If you are a confident writer who has a good grasp of grammar, you may not need copyediting for your thesis or dissertation. Why pay more? My basic proofreading service is applicable to all types of documents, including advanced academic writing. If all you want is to have an expert grammarian review your document and fix occasional typographical and grammar errors (or even the wrong word here or there), but your writing is clear and understandable and you don't make big syntax errors or need transitions and references reviewed, then order our basic proofreading service at 2 cents per word. Order Basic Proofreading
Dissertation proofreading includes all grammar, punctuation, wording, and editing for flow and transitions required for Ph.D. level writing. Formatting for required academic style is included. We can help with pagination, headings, and tables of contents.
We can edit dissertations written in LaTeX through our account at OverLeaf. The word count should exclude formulas and technical data that you don't need us to review.
Some schools require you to provide a certificate of editing when you have your thesis edited. When you order my thesis editing service, simply check the box at the time of order and I will include a certificate when I return the completed document. The certificate will confirm that the only thing I did was work on your grammar and wording and that the content is still 100% your original work. Order Thesis Editing
I follow the Canadian Editors' Association ethical guidelines for thesis and dissertation editing. It’s not plagiarism to have someone help you with your writing; plagiarism is when you use someone else’s work without attribution. Plagiarism is also when you pass someone else's work off as your own, such as when you buy an essay or hire someone to write an essay for you. On the other hand, sometimes editing can help you avoid unwarranted accusations of plagiarism because an editor can fix your references to avoid flagging for plagiarism by a computer review system. An editor can point out where ideas should be referenced. I've provided editing services for PhD candidates and graduates, university professors and college teachers. Almost all professional work is edited before publication. The job of the editor is not to add ideas or content; the job of the editor is to ensure that your ideas are expressed in the best way possible. I use the “Track Changes” function in M.S. Word to document all edits. That way you can review the changes and see how to improve your writing.
I do not charge extra for writers whose first language is not English. However, if your fluency is such that I frequently have trouble understanding what you are trying to say, then I may request a higher fee.
I offer an editing service for submissions to academic journals. The price for Academic Journal Editing is in line with thesis editing, but the form asks for different information so I can properly format and edit your academic journal article based on the style of the journal you are submitting to.
