Technical editors for YOUR required style guide

The professional editors at First Editing are experienced scholars familiar with all the major style guides: APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, Harvard, etc. While some basics are similar in each, there are also slight differences: for example, in APA style, a parenthetical citation would look thusly: (Smith, 2009). In Harvard style the same citation would be: (Smith 2009).

Professional editors properly arrange your reference material. We ensure direct quotes appear with proper citations and all sources in the text are properly written and included in your reference section. (Note: we will NOT write your paper.) Please include your complete instructions, chosen style guide, and writing concerns when submitting your document for editing.

What is included in Technical Editing Services?

Grammar, punctuation, spelling, and subject-verb agreement are necessary basics. Our technical edit also checks for continuity of thoughts, smooth flow of ideas, and points out where statements might need more support. Citations are of paramount importance and formatting is available.

The true beauty of the technical thesis edit is in the little details that can be stumbling blocks to research success or professional publication. In a technical edit, your editor closely examines your citations and references, ensuring they adhere to your style guide.

Our editors also edit to the “house style” of a particular journal if necessary. Some journals require a specific font, spacing, and citation style. These “house” rules can be found on their website or in a .pdf sent to the submitting author.

Do you need professional feedback?

Our editors also serve as commentators on your work, pointing out areas that seem weak or especially strong. They indicate where citations are missing or needed.

Technical editors ask questions where your answers help clarify a confusing passage. It is better to have an editor make these types of comments than your committee or the journal review panel!

Do you need formatting?

A final “plus” of technical editing is that it includes a degree of formatting. Our academic editors won’t place your charts and diagrams or generate your reference list. However, they will make sure your margins are correct, your references are formatted as they should be, your line spacing is consistent, and your headers and footers are placed properly.

Technical editors with experience and PhDs

Our technical editors have served as examiners for undergraduate, Master’s, and PhD theses. They know what to look for in an academic paper and what your examiner demands.

Your professional editor indicates all areas that need to be “tightened” in order to for you to pass your review.  Our editors have been through it themselves and with their own students. They do their utmost to ensure you have a polished and complete product.

Our Thesis Editing Services

We can solve your thesis problems in an efficient manner while giving advice on where additional references or information is required, or whether your arguments are flowing correctly.

We edit everything from program applications (e.g., PhD applications) to a thesis of several hundred pages. We always ensure that you meet your requirements. We also safeguard that your references and figures are consistent and correct.
