We offer English editing and advisory services for research proposals, journal manuscripts, reports, and other academic documents. Our editing service provides correction of non-standard use of grammar, expression, and punctuation. (Excluded from the editing service is the re-formatting of manuscripts to meet the requirements of the style sheets of specific journals.)
Correction of grammar errors alone will facilitate readers' understanding of the meaning of sentences but may not improve the quality of the argument. To enhance the quality of the argument in a paper or thesis clients may use our academic writing advisory service.
The academic writing advisory services we provide include the following:
* Discussion, via email or skype, with postgraduate students on approach to academic writing, organisation of ideas, and development of arguments in specific chapters or sections in a thesis/dissertation (e.g. how to select and use sources to develop arguments in the literature review, how to support interpretation of findings in the Discussion), or construction of data collection/analysis instruments to align with a theoretical framework or with the research questions.
* The services described above are also available to academics writing papers for publication
* Academic writing courses for individuals or small groups tailored to specific needs
* Consultancy services for curriculum designers and teachers engaged in developing instructional materials or enhancing teacher expertise for the teaching of writing (e.g. how to incorporate critical thinking into writing lessons, how to teach the thinking skills involved in argumentative writing)
