Theses and Dissertations: Checking the language

Student theses and other dissertations, postgraduate essays and post-doctoral articles form a not inconsiderable portion of the work that many copy-editors and proofreaders do.

The subject areas of these academic texts range across all fields of study, and this rich cultural diversity offers scope for the development and edification of copy-editors and proofreaders themselves, as well as providing opportunities to broaden editorial experience.

This guide covers many aspects of this work, ranging from ethics to marketing, methodology and theory to practice, pros and cons to rewards and limitations. It also illustrates through directly referenced text the variations in content and style that might be encountered.
