Dissertations
04/03/18
Editing and proofreading are essentials for a candidate who has to submit a thesis or dissertation. Many degree courses use a dissertation as a concluding form of study for a candidate to obtain a grade that will contribute to their professional qualification(s). Candidates have to employ academic skills in relation to their own disciplines. These skills include collating and assimilating information that is then used in the various sections of the completed project.

If you have an appointed supervisor for your dissertation, it is important to establish if you have a set schedule in place for meetings with your supervisor. A more important factor to consider is whether your supervisor is approachable and reassuring.

Editing is essential in the production of a dissertation. It is important that the typescript is checked word for word, that quotations are accurate and checked against the originals, that page numbers are supplied where quoted text is given, and that footnotes are in sequence and checked for accuracy.

Most UK proofreaders can provide this service, but it is important to choose an accredited company like Apollo Communication for the best results. Candidates who ask for proofreading of their dissertation are really requesting that the entire project be checked for all kinds of errors. These errors may include typos (literals) or incorrectly typed words, missing words, repeated words or phrases, and bad word breaks.
