Ethical Editing and Mentoring/Advising Services
for Dissertation, Thesis, and Academic Article
and Book Writers

A-1's editors and consultants are experienced academics, and we have shepherded countless thesis, dissertation, and post-graduate writing projects through the arduous process you are facing. We not only edit your drafts for grammatical issues and for clarity and proper citation formatting (and we have experts in all citation methods: APA, MLA, CMS, etc.), but unlike most academic editing services, we are also qualified to broach issues of development if necessary, offering suggestions that deepen or support your research or that correlate elements in ways you haven't anticipated.

We can also mentor you through any portion of the dissertation or thesis project, from inception (brainstorming topics, critiquing outlines, topic or focus suggestions, research options, etc.), to designing your literature review or refining and augmenting the conclusions you reach in your results chapter.

Whether you need citation help or your advisor has not provided the research direction you need, we tailor our academic editorial services to suit your individual requirements.

For All Your Thesis and Dissertation Editing and Advising Needs:
A-1 Complete Writing and Editing provides superior ethical assistance to academic writers.

Services: A-1 Academic Writing and Editing offers the following editorial and coaching services to thesis and dissertation writers, and for academic book and journal article writers as well:

  • proofreading (including for APA, MLA, CMS or etc. consistency)
  • line editing
  • substantive / content / stylistic editing
  • recommendations for development (deepening and supporting your argument, making creative correlations, etc.)
  • research suggestions
  • project design help
  • mentoring and consulting (answering your questions, research suggestions, critiquing chapter outlines, etc.—whatever ethical input your academic project requires)

A Note to Graduate Students: Academics are busy people, and consequently your dissertation or thesis advisor may not have the kind of time required to help you through the thesis or dissertation process; and let's face it, some advisors think you know how to accomplish this enormous project already anyway and so offer little in the way of thesis or dissertation writing help. Our editors are current and former academics who have worked with literally thousands of graduate students on their final projects (as thesis and dissertation editors, mentors, advisors, and graduate committee chairs), which allows us to not only edit your work but to provide personalized dissertation and thesis coaching services to suit your particular circumstances.

This Week's FAQ

Are all editorial services qualified to work on academic projects?

The short answer is a resounding no. There are several editing services advertising online that they can provide dissertation and thesis editing, but closer inspection will reveal that most do not employ a single experienced academic editor. A-1's editors are current or former academics and have helped hundreds of dissertation and thesis writers achieve excellent graduate projects, either in a departmental or a university writing center setting. Our academic editors also have experience with a wide variety of topic areas, whereas even qualified academic editing services tend to have experience with only a limited range of subjects. A-1's editors also have academic publication credits, including refereed journal articles and scholarly books, which means we can help postgraduate writers with their projects as well. Last but far from least, we can coach an academic writer through the dissertation or thesis process should he/she require critical input from inception to the final copy. Very few academic editing and consulting services can provide this level of ethical service.
