Correction: proofreading versus proofreading

What we can do for you and your doctoral thesis

As part of the editing we correct spelling, grammar and punctuation and gently smooth stylistic bumps. We also pay attention to uniform writing and citation methods and compare the table of contents with the headings in your doctoral thesis or dissertation. Anything else we notice, we note in comments on the edge.

Sometimes it happens that a thesis is excellently formulated and no stylistic corrections are necessary. We will gladly advise you or always openly address it, if in our opinion a proofreading is sufficient.

Which is not part of the editing

It is important to us that you know what we can do for you, but also what is not part of the editing process. First of all, you as the author or author are solely responsible for the content. Only you have the expertise to prepare the content professionally or methodically correct. Moreover, it is important to us to distinguish ourselves clearly from ghostwriting agencies. Academic ghostwriting is taboo for us. Finally, we do not do any plagiarism. Our expertise lies in the field of proofreading. Here we have years of experience and can provide you with optimal care.

Our technical focus

We proofread German-language doctoral theses and dissertations from different subject areas – provided we are familiar with the terminology, so you can follow it in your mind. We routinely read theses from the humanities, psychology and social sciences and economics.

In some cases, we also proofread legal or technical work (especially in the field of architecture). If in doubt, just contact us, send us your doctoral thesis or dissertation and we will look at whether you are in good hands with us. If not, we will let you know and let us know if we can recommend someone from our network.

Wordfile or PDF?

It makes the most sense to have your thesis reviewed in Word. You do not have to work through every single correction like in a PDF. When proofreading in Word, you can track corrections in Review mode and decide each time you decide whether to accept or reject them. That’s the ideal way of working.

But there may be reasons why it is not possible for you. Therefore, you will receive from us a second file with already incorporated corrections. In the you only see the comments, the corrections are already accepted by the program.

A doctoral thesis needs a certain touch. Content by the care and formally by a professional proofreading or editing. Finding a good proofreading or editing is not easy. After a long search, I came across the writing workshop and Huberta Weigl. The professional appearance and the fact that I could see a face to the company here attracted positive attention. In addition, the team of Mrs. Weigl has a lot of experience with the proofreading and editing of dissertations. Everything went according to your wishes. The corrections were clear, comprehensible and to-the-point. Highly recommended, definitely!
