The problem with checking hyphenation, capitalization, title case and abbreviations is that it's time-consuming and tedious, especially in long documents such as dissertations. If you're doing it manually, each hyphenated and capitalized phrase needs to be checked. Each abbreviation needs to be found and every heading needs to be considered. You may need to read through your dissertation several times to ensure that the usage on the fourth page is the same as the usage on the thirtieth. But you can do all of that quickly, easily and more accurately by using PerfectIt.
When we receive your manuscript, we carefully note any editing instructions you provide, especially your final deadline; the journal name or stylistic guide, such as Chicago Manual of Style; and whether you require British or American English. Susan Hatch Morgan, our Managing Editor, then identifies an editor in or familiar with your field who can meet your deadline. The editor prepares a sample edit of 500 words for documents 5,000 words or more, or 10 percent of submissions under 5,000 words. The sample edit demonstrates how your editor will edit your paper and also allows us to calculate the cost of editing your paper based on the editing level the sample edit reveals.
