You will receive two versions of the proofread text via e-mail. In version 1 you can see the changes we made and you can determine yourself which changes you want to accept. In version 2 all changes have already been accepted.

More information & Examples

Proofread

With this check we not only correct all typing and spelling errors, but also all grammatical errors, style errors, inconsistencies, incorrect sentence structure and punctuation.

Furthermore, we not only check if we can improve the use of academic language in your thesis or essay, but als pay attention to subjective or vague formulations, verb tenses, numbers, abbreviations and more. Check our review model for complete overview.

The changes in the text are made by ‘track changes‘ in Word, so that you can see exactly what has been changed. Moreover, you can decide yourself which changes you want to implement.

Structure-check

We delve deeper into the text and see if your thesis or essay meets the assessment criteria. We check the following points:

  • Completeness: does each thesis component meet the criteria and is this correctly stated?
  • Clarity: is the theory used relevant? Has the conclusion been drawn based on the results?
  • Unnecessary repetitions: do you repeat information can aspects be written down more concisely?
  • Structure: is the structure of the research correctly and is there a logical connection between the paragraphs?

You receive this check in the form of feedback in the margin of the document, with useful tips and valuable suggestions for substantive improvements.

APA-check

With the APA-check we check all in-text references and the bibliography will be corrected according to the latest edition of the APA manual. All changes will be implemented immediately.

Furthermore, we check the content of every source displayed in the bibliography extensively, alphabetize the bibliography and we point out sources that mentioned in the text, but are not displayed in the reference list (and vice versa).

We check both the Dutch and the English APA rules. View our rates page for an overview of the prices or calculate the price with our calculator.
