Project Description

I am writing a dissertation/thesis on web applications and need to turn it in on Wednesday morning, but am a little late already and will be making changes to it up until the last minute.

I'm doing it in English and although my English is great, I'm not a native English speaker. So I'm looking for someone meticulous to go through it for me - basically proofread it and even rewrite certain parts if necessary.

Please be aware that I'm not looking as much for someone to correct my grammar or simple things like that (again my English is good enough) - this is a dissertation for _ACADEMIA_ - meaning you need to have experience in correcting academic writing. My reviewers will be looking at every misplaced comma, quotation, bad reference or informal assumption they can get their hands on. Also mark every place missing a reference/quote, etc.

I need you to be very very thorough and work independently. This means that if you find something that sounds a bit funky and not that academic - you need to rewrite it on your own and not ask me about every little detail since I'll be preparing a few more things to turn in and will be pretty busy with that. If you're familiar with the subject and in the process rewrite text to seem a bit bigger - even better, since I'm a bit low on text.

A few references in relation to similar work you might have done in the past would ease my mind and win you a few plus points.

BTW its a 80-page document, however with only about 40-50 pages of text. So not that bad.

I will send it to you in a Microsoft Word ,docx format.

IMPORTANT - any changes you make to the documents have to be made using word review / track changes functionality. I need to be able to see/approve the changes you made once you send it to me. If you don't know what that is take a look here - [url removed, login to view]

ALSO IMPORTANT - I'm still working on the whole thing, so I will send you the document on Tuesday mid day (so 12:00 o'clock central european time - if you're in the US, its -6 hours so it will be 6 in the morning) and need it back on the SAME DAY at latest 11 at night - 23:00 hours (so if you're in the US this would again be 5 in the afternoon)

BTW please be aware that my budget for this is max. 80$. And only for the strictest reviewer in the world with the mouth of gold :-) Still its not bad for half-days work.
