Thesis editing

So close to the finishing line …

… and still so much to do.

You’ve come a long way, and now there is light at the end of the tunnel. Submission day is close! What a milestone. Once ideas are settled and chapters are written, there is still a bit of housekeeping to do. Have you checked your draft for spelling, grammar, and expression? Is punctuation consistent throughout? How about the references, do they adhere to whatever chosen style you have decided to implement? And the table of contents, does it link to the right page numbers? There is so much to consider that it can be great to get support during this crucial last stretch of your degree. You will want your thesis to look as perfect as possible, to do justice to the journey you’ve been on, and to the hard work that lies behind you.

Thesis editing has its own unique set of rules and requirements. At Mind Your Way, we are fully equipped to provide specialised editing of Honours, Masters, or PhD theses. Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach, we take the time to understand your individual needs: Are you just after a thorough copy-edit of your content? Do you also need us to implement your faculty’s preferred citation style? Or do you want us to fully transform your thesis with customised formatting? Whatever your needs, we will create a tailored thesis editing package that suits you. We even have a resident thesis expert, Dr Belinda Calderone, who will ensure that you feel listened to and comfortable throughout the editing process.

Mind Your Way has a really helpful team of editors. The editing of my PhD thesis was arranged quickly and flexibly according to my needs. My editor worked very closely with me – we had email conversations every day during the period of the editing to make sure that we had got every detail right. Both my supervisor and I are very satisfied with the quality of the editing. Further, my PhD thesis was commented on by a famous and leading scholar in my area as excellent and well-written, and this could not have happened without the help of Mind Your Way.

Non-native English? Re-submission tidying?

Second-language learners have an extra hurdle to surmount in preparing their thesis for submission. Our editors will take the necessary time in working with these students to help them express themselves clearly.

We are also available to help students post-submission once they have received their examiner reviews – ensuring that the thesis is in the best shape possible for a successful re-submission.

Best-practice thesis editing standards

With a document as important as a thesis, you will want to make sure you are in good editorial hands.

At Mind Your Way, all theses are edited in line with the Guidelines for Editing Academic Theses set forth by the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd) – Australia’s premier organisation for editing support and accreditation.

Among our skilled team of consultants and editors, many hold IPEd certification as Accredited Editors (AEs), among other tertiary qualifications in writing and editing.

In short, your thesis is in good hands, and we will treat it with due respect and care.
