What is Thesis Editing?

editors in thesis

Authors crystallize their ideas and research work in an academic document, known as a thesis. Writing a thesis has multiple objectives: achieving an educational qualification, securing funding, qualifying for a research program, etc. However, if the thesis does not have the required language quality or does not meet the submission guidelines, it may be outrightly rejected. To avoid such a situation, authors rely on thesis editing. 

What is thesis editing?

Thesis editing augments the overall quality of the thesis to improve the chances of its acceptance. It covers the following aspects. 

What does a thesis editor do?

A thesis editor rectifies grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors, improves syntax, ensures clarity and coherence in the text, and maintains the consistency of font, style, and format. In addition, the editor also checks if the thesis complies with the necessary style guides and submission protocols. Put simply; the editor makes the thesis ready for submission. 

What qualities must a thesis editor have?

Authors invest a lot of time and effort in writing the thesis. Therefore, they must not be entangled in the tedious process of thesis editing. It is always viable for authors to opt for professional thesis editing to receive;

Thesis editing is a critical and time-intensive process, but it helps the author establish a successful career when done by professionals. So, authors must choose the right thesis editing service to make a brilliant first impression on their faculty and superiors with a well-edited thesis.

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

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.

You've reached this page because you're seeking clarity, consistency, and grammatical precision in your writing. You've come to the right place. Since our founding in 2002 as the original all-academic editing service, we've provided final-draft proofreading, formatting, and editing services that students (and professors) can afford for their most important work.

We were the first online service to make dissertation and essay editing widely available and affordable and to prove that professors would endorse professional editing for student writers. In fact, our oldest online review comes from in 2004:

Our Editing Services

Essay editing services, express essay editing  & proofreading, thesis & dissertation editing  &  proofreading, resumé editing &   admission   essay editing, dissertation formatting services, tips for essay writers, our experience.

Since our founding in 2002, we've prepared (i.e., edited, formatted, and proofread)  tens of thousands of pages of student dissertations for publication in ProQuest's database alone .

The rates for our services are set to meet the needs and budgets of graduate and undergraduate students. We've done the math, and our per-page rates are comparable to the hourly rates offered elsewhere, and our prices are slightly lower than those of our competitors' rates per page.

Our Competitors

We edit. They proofread (and call it editing).

Other companies use a pool of casual or part-time editors who produce work like the sample we recently requested from another service and re-edited here .

The Editing Process

When you   order editing services   from us, we'll change the grammar and style directly in your draft using Word's track changes function. After we edit your essay or dissertation and return it by email, you can choose to review each of the changes individually or accept them universally. Unlike other services online, we don't leave comments or suggestions for you to review . Instead, we'll  return an error-free, print-ready draft .

Natural Intelligence

Grammar check apps like Grammarly can help writers find many of the errors in their papers and dissertations, but they routinely make incorrect suggestions and reduce your writing to a standard style that reads as artificial and clunky. Your final draft needs a human eye to check for contextual errors, revise to ensure natural phrasing, and help you maintain a fluid, consistent style.

What You'll Need to Get Started

To place an   order with us , you'll need a Word version of the essay, thesis, or dissertation draft that you'd like us to edit, the total word count of the document, any instructions or guidelines that you'd like us to follow (such as formatting guidelines or comments from a professor or advisor), and a payment method.

Our Reputation

We are proud of our reputation as the highest-quality thesis editing service available. Testimonials from our past clients and the examples of our editing we provide here demonstrate the quality of our work.

Editing examples

The following documents provide representative examples of our work for past clients.


I want to thank Capstone Editing for the invaluable assistance they provided in editing my PhD thesis (following the ‘Guidelines for Editing Research Theses’ as per University of Adelaide requirements). The final edited thesis was perfectly expressed and did not contain any typographical or grammatical errors. This was affirmed by my thesis being accepted without corrections, which I believe is rare. I am especially grateful for the care taken to avoid changing any of my ideas in what was a complex work. In reviewing the edits and comments, I felt at all times that my work had been treated with the greatest sensitivity and respect. Capstone Editing proved their editors to be highly skilled, professional and trustworthy. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to postgraduates and academics seeking a professional academic editor.

I would confidently recommend the editorial services of Capstone Editing. They are fast, capable and professional. My editor identified a number of places in which the expression and clarity in the grant were able to be improved. Her careful editing saved me valuable time and identified details I had missed in my own revisions. She was careful to ensure that any changes to the expression didn’t change the meaning, and clearly noted where there may have been ambiguity. In today’s competitive research environment, I honestly believe the services of Capstone Editing represent a very worthwhile investment, and I intend to utilise their services again with future grants.

A good editor may be the difference between a pass or fail, or more positively, a High Distinction or a Distinction. A good editor will not only attend to spelling, grammar, syntax and structure but will also read and understand the point of the assignment and thus recommend changes in accordance with the specific intentions of the work. A good editor is clear and precise. A good editor offers suggestions towards increasing clarity, that is, what you think you are saying may not be what you have said. This is all the job of a good editor. Capstone's editors are among the best. I have never received less than a High Distinction in any subject since using their services.

Dr Lisa Lines was recommended to me by a colleague as an expert editor in her field. It is my pleasure to assert that her editorial services were well worth the investment made. Not only am I grateful for the numerous corrections to errors that I had missed, but I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn from her expertise. While I hope to implement some of these skills in the future, I will certainly engage her services again. Her attention to detail, her professionalism and her courteous manner in dealing with my work were greatly appreciated. Dr Lines formatted my thesis in such a way that it is both easy to read and navigate. It was reassuring to have someone trustworthy to help me in the final stages of my PhD. I recommend Capstone Editing to students and academics alike.

Our simple order process provides easy access to professional academic editing. In some cases, your university will provide funding for thesis editing and we can invoice them directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the steps to write a thesis statement.

A thesis statement outlines your main argument. An effective thesis statement will be clear, specific, focused and concise. It will focus the reader’s attention on your topic and clearly outline your perspective. The steps to write a thesis statement include restating the research question in your own words, adopting a position (argument), listing the main reasons for adopting that position (which you will discuss in your essay) and combining all this information into a single sentence (or several sentences for a longer research paper with a more complex topic).

What does a thesis editor do?

A thesis editor improves the quality of a thesis by increasing the language quality to ensure that ideas and arguments are presented clearly, correcting any mistakes and ensuring adherence to all academic writing, formatting and referencing conventions. A thesis editor will ensure correct grammar, syntax, spelling and punctuation; correct use of formal academic English; complete internal consistency; correct and consistent use of abbreviations; and improving logic, clarity and flow, structure and organisation of ideas. Additionally, a thesis editor will completely format a thesis ready for printing and submission, following university submission guidelines; create all preliminary pages (e.g., Title page, Table of Contents, List of Figures, List of Tables and List of Abbreviations), which will be automatic and easy to update; edit and format tables and figures for neatness and consistency; edit and format appendices for neatness and consistency; and crosscheck in-text references with the reference list. A thesis editor will do everything they can, as permitted by university guidelines (which, in Australia, are the nationally endorsed ‘Guidelines for Editing Research Theses’), to ensure that a thesis is ready for submission and the research is presented in the best possible light. A thesis editor will not make substantial changes to structure and content.

How do you edit a thesis paper?

You edit a thesis paper by completing the first (and second and third) round of editing yourself before acquiring the services of a third-party editor, either a colleague or a professional editor. When you edit your own thesis paper, you must ensure that all the important information is included in the correct order, according to your thesis plan, and that there are no major errors or inconsistencies. You must also check that all formatting and referencing are consistent and correct. A professional editor will be useful because you will be very close to your own work, particularly in the final stages of preparing your thesis paper; therefore, you may miss errors in content and style. However, an academic editor will be able to read and edit your thesis paper with fresh eyes and, thus, catch any errors you may have missed.

How do I write a thesis statement?

To write a thesis statement for an essay, you must first state your topic in your own words, being as specific and concise as possible. Then, you must state your main idea or opinion about the topic and provide the key evidence you are drawing on to support your opinion. This must all be done within a single sentence (or several sentences for a longer essay with a more complex topic). An effective thesis statement outlines your main argument; is clear, specific, focused and concise; and focuses the reader’s attention on your topic by clearly outlining your perspective on the topic.

What should go in a thesis statement?

A clear statement of the topic, your main opinion regarding the topic and the key evidence you will put forward to support this opinion should go in a thesis statement. An effective thesis statement outlines your main argument; is clear, specific, focused and concise; and focuses the reader’s attention on your topic by clearly outlining your perspective on the topic. A thesis statement would normally contain all these things in one sentence, but it may require several sentences if you are writing a longer and more complex essay or thesis.

What is a thesis statement in an essay?

A thesis statement in an essay outlines your main argument and focuses the reader’s attention by clearly outlining your perspective on the topic. It will provide the topic and some general context for it, your main perspective or opinion on the topic and the key evidence you have gathered to support this opinion. Further, a thesis statement will provide an outline for the ideas presented in the rest of your essay. A strong thesis statement gives direction to the essay and provides supporting evidence to motivate your readers to continue reading. A thesis statement in an essay would normally do all these things in one sentence, but it may be several sentences if you are writing a longer and more complex essay or thesis.
