“I am very happy with the review. In particular, I am happy that the reviewer gave explanations for the changes she made.”
🇺🇸 United States
How we will edit your dissertation or thesis
Our experienced editors are available 24/7/365 to rigorously review and comprehensively improve your writing.
Microsoft Word’s Track Changes We use Word’s Track Changes feature to highlight our amendments. We have alternative options for other formats, including PDF and Overleaf/LaTeX .
Improved style and appropriate register
We’ll improve your style and diction to ensure that your dissertation or thesis has a confident academic tone and an appropriate register.
I’ve changed “needn’t occur” to “is unnecessary” to enhance the formality of the text. In general, contractions (needn’t, can’t, won’t, etc.) should be avoided in academic writing. Dr Smith, PhD
Perfect clarity and structure
We’ll correct or query awkward phrasing and ambiguity to ensure that your writing is clearly expressed and easy to understand.
I would recommend being more specific here; do the physiological properties of FES systems create a challenging control problem or do they have to solve or address a challenging control problem? Dr Smith, PhD
Grammar, punctuation and readability
We fix errors related to grammar, punctuation and readability.
When a theory or model is named after two or more entities, the nouns are conventionally joined using an en dash. The same rule applies whenever the elements of a compound are considered equivalent, so the phrases “parent–child relationship”, “cost–benefit analysis”, etc., use an en dash rather than a hyphen. Dr Smith, PhD
General feedback and advice
We provide feedback and advice on the composition of the writing, both within the document and in the Editor’s Summary Report (for documents over 3,000 words).
To make sure an abbreviation is consistently applied throughout the document, a useful tip is to search for the term using Control F (Command F on a Mac). Dr Smith, PhD
Get the support of highly experienced academic editors
We’ll ensure that your dissertation or thesis is submitted in the best possible condition by assigning it to an academic editor with expertise in your field.
Each year, our editors review more than 6,000 dissertations and theses from a range of subject areas for students and PhD candidates from all over the world. Our clients’ feedback is overwhelmingly positive, and we work hard on each order to keep it this way.
Don’t lose precious marks for weaknesses in your English and academic style
At most universities, up to 20% of your grade depends on the quality of your writing.
Our editors will ensure that you don’t lose precious marks due to weaknesses in your writing ability. We’ll improve academic tone, register, flow and structure to help ensure that your writing is well received by the grading professor.
Are you an ESL student or academic?
Writing in a second language is challenging, and doing so to an academic standard is even more difficult. Even educated native speakers sometimes have trouble with the many obscure stylistic conventions that characterise academic writing.
As current and former academics, our editors know exactly what grading professors do—and don’t—want to see in a dissertation or thesis.
Hire the experts to help
Nothing influences your final degree classification more than the mark you receive for your dissertation or thesis.
If you choose to hire us to review and improve your dissertation or thesis, you are making an investment in your education and the result of your degree or doctorate. Our previous clients will attest to this.
There is no substitute for subject-matter expertise. With 300+ editors spanning the full spectrum of academic disciplines, we can pair most documents with a professional in your subject area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should i choose thesis pro or thesis essentials +.
Thesis Essentials provides a thorough grammar and language revision, so you won't have to worry about basic language mistakes. It is suitable for students who are confident in their writing and/or under close guidance from their research advisers. Thesis Pro gives you more holistic editing that not only ensures your manuscript is free of error but also enhances its content presentation.
How is Thesis Editing different from other Enago editing services? +
Enago offers 3 academic editing services- Top Impact Scientific Editing , Substantive Editing , and Copy Editing - targeting authors who wish to publish their research in international journals. Two to three editors edit each manuscript in the same research field for precise adherence to academic publishing conventions. These services also provide additional support for journal submission, including revision against peer reviewers' comments.
Will your experts fix issues in the content and structure of my thesis? +
Our thesis services may be equated to proofreading (Thesis Essentials) and copy editing (Thesis Pro). Neither of these services offers content edits or structural reviews. However, our experts will point out the issues they notice in Thesis Pro.
Can you format my thesis as per the required referencing style? Are your editors familiar with citation styles? +
Even though there are many distinct citation/reference formats, they all generally adhere to one of three basic principles: parenthetical, numerical, or note citations. Our thesis editors are well-versed with your institution's regulations and have over 10 years of experience in thesis editing & formatting.
Is there a thesis editing discount? I am a student. +
We offer a flat 15% off on our thesis editing services regardless of the word count of your paper since we understand that students are on a tight budget.

Proofreading and editing are essential steps of any well-written document. You’ve heard this time and time again, so we won’t harp on.

When proofreading is concerned, there are many options for you once you look up “free proofreading online” (or something of that sort) on Google. But here’s the thing. Online proofreading services are a far more reliable option.
An online proofreading tool is not going to recognize the intricacies of grammar and syntax as well as an online proofreading service run by humans would. After all, isn’t that why you’re on the lookout for an expert? With the comfort of the internet, you can avail quality proofreading by expert editors with no hassle. All online.
We’ve carefully curated a list of the best editing and proofreading services available, after going over each service and checking out their processes and editing quality. Here are some of your best options:
