I'm a professional editor and proofreader with a good knowledge of research methodologies and APA, MLA, Chicago, and Harvard referencing styles. Throughout my career, I have done extensive editing and proofreading of theses, journal articles, dissertations, reports, proposals, etc. My rigorous and thorough proofreading service includes... • Improving lexical choice to ensure appropriate tone and style • Fixing awkward phrasing and ambiguity • Providing suggestions on how your paper can be improved • Working on clarity, coherence and readability • Checking for accuracy & consistency of syntax How it works: I use the 'Track Changes' feature in MS Word so you will see all of the amendments that I have made. However, you won't need to convert your PDF or LaTex files as I have alternative options for these formats.
