If you are looking for a cheap, basic and rushed thesis/dissertation proofreading service, we suggest you stop reading now and look elsewhere – though we advise you be vigilant of scam websites.
If, however, you are looking for a premium quality review and improvement of your writing at a fair price, we can help.
Having a second-set of eyes go over your dissertation or thesis can be of tremendous value. Often, supervisors are unable to provide the amount of time required to substantially correct language, style, and clarity issues. In such cases, our experienced academic editors can be of assistance – 24/7, year-round.
The goal of our service is simple: through a careful review, we aim to eliminate errors while also improving the language and academic tone of your dissertation/thesis. We also look to provide suggestions on how you can improve or develop the content/argument to achieve a better grade.
The final result will be an improved document that reads with clarity and academic style.
Are you an ESL student or academic?
Writing in a second language is difficult. However, writing in a second language to an academic standard is even more challenging. There are so many obscure stylistic conventions that it is hard even for many educated native speakers.
Fortunately, as current and former university staff members and academics, our editors know exactly what grading professors do, and do not, want to see in a dissertation or thesis.
Hire the experts to help
Nothing influences your final degree classification more than the mark you receive from your dissertation or thesis.
If you choose to hire Cambridge to review and improve your dissertation or thesis, you are not simply purchasing a basic online proofreading service; you are making an investment in your education and the result of your degree or doctorate. Our previous clients will attest to this.

My suggestion would be to edit 5 pages of it and carefully track your time. Then use that as a basis to extrapolate and determine how many hours the whole project will take. Add in another 15% or so to the final total to cover exchanges of e-mails, reviewing material a second, third, or fourth time, etc. and you can then determine how much per hour you are willing to live with (and your client is willing to pay).
Like Robert, I also edit dissertation and diss-into-book projects for non-native speakers of English. When editing for presses, the pay is not good, but the last two jobs that I contracted (just this month), I quoted $35, and I found out through a friend that one of the people said "that's a bargain!" The other client didn't blink.
But do ask to see the manuscrip and edit 5 pages. Clock how long it takes you. And then ask the author: "Is this what you expect me to produce?" Make sure his expectations are completely clear to you.
fwiw there are several different levels of editing: developmental, substantive, copy editing, and proofreading. He is probably expecting a heavy copy edit of the work, but if he expects substantive editing, it is going to take you even longer than a heavy edit and you ought to know the subject matter well.
