Don’t underestimate the final phases of polishing your academic work.
Editing and proofreading, in addition to a thorough citations check, take time and know-how.
Academic developmental editing: Considers the argument & some aspects of structural organization of the document.
Academic copyediting: Considers word choice, paragraphing, grammar & some organizational aspects of the document.
Academic proofreading: Checks spelling, grammar, and formatting. Limited fact-checking elements may be flagged for author attention.
