Dissertation Editing

Once you have completed writing your dissertation, it is time to go through it and carry out thorough editing. While editing, you should keep a lookout for spelling and grammatical errors, incorrect sentence structures, repetition of points, format of the research paper, and the citation style. Since editing requires one to focus on a number of areas, it is advisable that you plan in advance and spare adequate time for the entire process.

Once spelling and grammatical errors are corrected, you should read each and every sentence to make sure that ideas are conveyed to the reader in the least number of words. Many students have the misconception that the longer a sentence is, the more sophisticated it sounds. This is not true. On the contrary, long sentences confuse the reader, forcing him to read the same sentence twice or even thrice, and while doing so, he may lose track of your earlier points. And this can be detrimental to your grade. So, it is advisable to keep sentences short and crisp, and introduce new ideas in new sentences. It is a fact that writers cannot identify their own mistakes; therefore, editing and proofreading should be carried out preferably by someone who was not involved in writing the dissertation. At Dissertation Clinic, we have a team of experienced subject matter experts, editors and proofreaders, who are adept at spotting errors. With Dissertation Clinic by your side, no error can go undetected, and you can be sure of acing your dissertation.

While editing, one should not only focus on the content but also on the format of the paper and the citations. Our editors are familiar with the citation styles used by universities worldwide, including APA, MLA, and Chicago. They are also up-to-date on what the latest edition of each formatting style says and what kind of effort needs to be put in so that they adhere to those guidelines. The library at our centres is constantly being stacked with the latest version of every dictionary and writing manual available. So, before our editors get to work, we advise you to share the requirements of your university so that they can carry out thorough editing of your dissertation, while taking into consideration the guidelines set by your university.
