Whether you are doing a PhD research or a Masters-level study, it is required that your content is free of all kinds of language-related errors. If your work even has errors of format, it will appear clumsy and ill to read. A paper that shows an inconsistent use of font styles, improper citations, or margins left here and there impresses no readers. In such a scenario, leaving linguistic mistakes in your work can be more disastrous. Thus, it is critical to get your dissertation or thesis proofread by a trained professional. At Miller Editing Center, our proofreaders offer you the same expertise with their deep subject knowledge and experience in mending research papers.
Our Proofreading Process
The checking of all basic language errors, spelling and syntax mistakes, and punctuation and format flaws is termed as proofreading. It is mostly required after the copy editing of a document has been done. Under our academic proofreading services, checking is done either by one proofreader or by a team of experts. We have a team that works in a collaborative manner to ensure that client projects are delivered on time. Proofreading is done is multiple stages to negate the existence of any mistake.
An entire document is checked from the beginning to the end for all kinds of typo and serious errors when we offer academic proofreading services. During the proofreading process, a manuscript is read to check the flow of its content. Then, in the second round, proofreading is done for the following:
- Spellings and jargons, as well as typographical errors
- Labeling and headers for images, graphs, tables, and charts
- Syntax and structure of sentences, paragraphs, sections, and chapters
- Punctuations (apostrophes, capitalization, indentation, quotes, full stops, spacing, comma placement)
- Checking of facts and figures to ensure that there is no validity issue and all assumptions made for a study are accurate
- Citation style and references
- Grammar (noun, pronoun, verb agreement, contractions)
- Phrases and incomplete sentences
Then comes the final phase of our proofreading process where all points are rechecked to make sure that nothing has been left out. Later, the document is sent to our client for feedback.
While we use sophisticated methods like proofreading software, they go hand in hand with manual proofreading, as one cannot just rely on the software itself. The knowledge of our experts is needed to judge the content and grammar in a document. Moreover, they also check formatting issues, starting with the title page to the style usage in bibliography. Our proofreading team will make sure that you have used the correct style for fonts, headers, and body text. They will also assess the alignment of text and indention.
If you have almost finished writing your document nicely, then you may approach us for its final language and formatting checks. Our proofreaders will give a turnaround to your paper so it becomes consistent and appealing for submission to a journal or your assessment committee.
