Dissertation and thesis proofreading

We know you’ve got someone in your life who thinks they’re up to proofreading your dissertation. Everyone does. But really, are you happy to let the culmination of the past however-many years of your life rest in the hands (or rather, eyes) of your mum? God bless her we know she’d do her best, she really would. But she’s not trained for this. We are.

Ethical training

Here at Comma Chameleon, we understand the importance of dissertations and theses being proofread before submission. But we also know there are certain ethical dilemmas and unspoken boundaries that come with proofreading academic texts. That’s why we’ve undertaken specialised training to ensure we don’t do more than we should. We want your text to be perfect. But more importantly, we want it to remain yours.

How it works

  1. Step 1: The brief

    Tell us everything you need us to know, including the timeframe you’re working to. We’ll hit you back with any questions or queries we’ve got.
  2. Step 2: The nitty-gritty

    We’ll work together to nail down a process that works for us both. A chapter at a time? No worries. The whole thing, including references and appendices? You got it. We’ll make this as painless as possible, we promise.
  3. Step 3: The product

    We’ll get your proofread work back to you as soon as it’s ready – via email, through the post, however you want it. We can talk you through any changes or queries, and we’ll iron out any remaining wrinkles before your deadline hits.

They were very professional, as well as enthusiastic and sensible to current difficult circumstances. Thank you, Comma Chameleon. It was very easy working with you!
