A combination of Academic Proofreading and Editing, with Supervisor Feedback comments added for your review.
Evaluation of Arguments
Your arguments and statements shall be critically evaluated to determine whether they are descriptive or explanatory, and whether they demonstrate evidence of analysis or synthesis, with suggestions made for improvement.
Use of Sources
Your claims and statements substantiated with evidence shall be critiqued. Your Academic Supervisor shall critique your use of sources and the extent to which they appropriately support your arguments.
Structure & Logic
Your Academic Supervisor shall critique your structure, providing comments on how to enhance your structure, reconsider your logic and more effectively demonstrate your understanding.
Identification of Major Issues
Any major issues, deficiencies or causes for concern shall be highlighted and commented upon, with suggestions for improvement.
Spelling, Grammar & Typography
All spelling errors shall be corrected based on your requested spelling convention (e.g. British, American). Typography issues (such as spacing, inconsistent fonts or line spacing) shall be identified and destroyed.
Your sentences shall be critically reviewed for weaknesses in lexis or syntax. Where necessary or advantageous, sentences shall be reconstructed to better convey your underlying thought.
Your use of vocabulary and lexis shall be critically reviewed. More academic and contextually appropriate synonyms shall be suggested where appropriate or necessary.
Subjective Editorial Suggestions
We will conscientiously consider the context of your document. While applying objective error corrections, subjective editorial suggestions shall be made for your consideration. These are designed to identify any major issues (i.e. structural weaknesses; factual inaccuracies).
Any document(s) submitted for Academic Proofreading & Supervisor Feedback shall be returned to you completed to an excellent standard.
The OAS Standards represent the objective measure by which we deem your document ready to be returned to you.
They are developed and reviewed in collaboration with our partners at the Office for Academic Integrity, and informed by academic research.
This service is a combination of the Academic Proofreading and Supervisor Feedback services. Therefore, the respective standards shall apply. In the rare event of a dispute, the respective OAS Standards shall be consulted.
The Office for Academic Support leads the way when it comes to editorial standards. Our Academic Editors range from PhD and post-doc researchers to retired professors and published authors.
All OAS Academic Editors must regularly complete proprietary Quality Assurance Assessments.
This rigorous approach to quality ensures that the OAS Standards are always met, and that the quality of our editorial and tutorial work is constantly reinforced.
Despite these safeguards, the Office for Academic Support also implements a peer review system. At the discretion of the Quality Control (QC) team, the document you submit is liable to be checked and reviewed by a second, more senior academic.
This not only gives your document the benefit of a second review, but it also enables our more senior academics to audit and train other academics.
This peer review system forms an integral part of our Quality Control system, providing training opportunities throughout our network of academics, whilst concurrently providing clients with a double-blind review of their work, thereby enhancing quality.
A Combined Service
The Academic Proofreading and Supervisor Feedback service is a combination service, primarily designed for clients who are in a rush. The quality of this service is determined by the exact same standards for the respective individual services. Ideally, with effective time management, your initial draft should benefit from at least one round of Supervisor Feedback before being submitted for Academic Proofreading & Editing. This would give you sufficient time to consider the comments and recommendations of the Academic Supervisor, learning from those comments and updating your document accordingly.
We recognise that some clients are under immense deadline pressures, and will therefore need to proofread and edit their current draft, but who also seek to take advantage of any comments or feedback from our Academic Supervisors. For this reason, we are able to provide the Academic Proofreading and Supervisor Feedback service. This Academic Proofreading & Supervisor Feedback service is usually used by clients who are under deadline pressure. This service thus provides the combined benefits of Academic Proofreading & Editing, with Supervisor Feedback, in the form of a single time-critical service.
You are viewing the Service Details page for the combination service: Academic Proofreading & Supervisor Feedback. This is often used as the final stage prior to formal submission of your assignment.
Despite the time-sensitive pressures you may be under, it is important to ensure sufficient time to check and apply the comments provided by the Academic Supervisor - it may save you crucial marks.
