Our expert editors ensure your document meets the highest standards with flawless language and precise formatting.

It is vital for your documents to be free of all technical and stylistic flaws. Their corrections should be done by professional editors, experts who are skilled in terms of spotting and remedying problems having to do with grammar, punctuation, spelling, word usage, and the inner logic of writing. An essay is only as valuable and effective as its ability to communicate its thesis. A well-thought-out essay on an interesting topic loses its fire and its ability to persuade if it is not properly written according to the rules of Standard English. Corrections can ensure that your document communicates its message to the reader. Good editing enhances the effectiveness of your writing. It is extremely important to follow the instructions. Errors in punctuation, for example, detract from the reader’s ability to understand what the writer is attempting to communicate. The same holds true for other errors in terms of mechanics, style, and flow. The body of the essay should provide valid sources that support the thesis statement. Essay corrections should be consistent, meaning that the editor should rectify and resolve errors in the same way throughout an essay. For example, with regard to spelling, the editor should make sure that the same spelling for a word is used consistently. An instance of that would be using “theater” throughout the essay, and not alternating that spelling with “theatre.” Youdemy will make certain that the essay adheres to all grammar and punctuation rules by performing an extensive essay correction. In addition to correcting grammatical errors, our editors will verify that your document is sound and that the body of your essay supports your thesis.

Why You Will Love Us

Youdemy is confident that after reviewing its website and the samples of its work, you will undoubtedly select it for your editing needs. The key factors that separate Youdemy from its competitors are as follows:

  • Experienced Team of Editors.  Our team of editors is experienced with editing everything from coursework submissions to papers, prospectuses, proposals, and final dissertations. Youdemy is your source for professional business, resume, academic, student, essay, and book/manuscript proofreading services. Unlike other editing services, Youdemy goes far beyond polishing writing and offers comments on a paper´s construction, organization, and study methodology. Unlike other editing services who use outsourced contractors (often international) for most of their edits, all of Youdemy’s editors work solely for Yodemy and have PhDs from elite Universities around the world.
  • Confidential, Safe, and SecureYoudemy has been in the editing services business for more than a decade and has thousands of satisfied clients. Your precious work, money, and time are safe with Youdemy. Services are confidential, safe, and secure. You will retain full copyright control and credit for your edited documents. Youdemy will never collect or share your information, and your documents will never be stored without your permission.
  • Guaranteed Fast Approval. Youdemy guarantees approval of its edits by your reviewer or institution, almost always on the first submission.
  • Reasonable Cost. Since its work is customized for each of its clients, its rates depend on the scope of work that would be required to perfectly edit your particular document. Among professional editing services with its experience level, its prices tend toward the average of the industry.
  • Fastest Turnaround Time. Since our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, your completed edit can typically be returned within just a few business days of beginning work. Youdemy is able to offer much faster turnaround than other editing services – often as little as 3 to 4 days for a full dissertation. Youdemy can also work on expedited timelines and have your edit done in as little as 1-2 business days.
  • Expertise in APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, and Harvard Styles. Your document is formatted according to all prescribed guidelines. For academic editing including dissertation or thesis editing, you can request our editors to follow any of the standard writing styles: APA, Chicago, CSE, or MLA. The cited sources should follow the professor’s selected writing style: APA, ASA, AMA, MLA, Chicago, CSE, Turabian, AP, Harvard, etc. Youdemy prides itself on being able to work with any style and within any University´s guidelines. On the rare occasions where Youdemy has not worked with a specific school’s editing guidelines, our editors take time to learn how to expertly execute the customized editing required before beginning to edit your work.
  • Personalized Attention. Youdemy works with its clients throughout the entire editing process. You will work with one project manager who will be constantly available to you via phone, Skype, or email during and after your time working with Youdemy. Youdemy is easy to reach, always happy to speak to you, and doesn’t disappear when the work is done (in case you need Youdemy for revisions or after-support).
  • Full-Service Consulting. Youdemy can also assist with content-related issues brought up by your committee or can assist with your Qualitative Analysis consulting using NVivo and Quantitative Analysis consulting using SPSS.
  • Expertise in Online University Formatting. Youdemy is also aware of the special challenges that students at online Universities face. If you are an online University student, your paper will have to be approved not only by your professors but also by the format reviewers. Because each online university´s format differs slightly from standard APA editing, it is crucial to find an editor who knows not only the base APA editing style, but also each school´s special rules.
  • Reference Updating. One of the most common aspects that Youdemy sees is the updating of older references used in the body of the work. Many of Youdemy’s clients are part-time students or work on their dissertations for over a year. Either way, with the implementation of a general rule about only using 4-5 year old references, those time lags can result in the presence of older references. As a result, not only will Youdemy ensure proper reference and citation formatting, but Youdemy will also check every reference to ensure it meets your school’s specific age requirements. Youdemy has access to some libraries, which allows it to help its clients with their studies, giving it full-text access to hundreds of major journals and databases, including JSTOR, EbscoHost, Questia, ProQuest, ScienceDirect, Blackwell Synergy, and many others. This access allows Youdemy to help you fill in the gaps if your references are missing information such as a place of publication or volume number.
  • Correcting all English Language Errors. Your edited work has an improved style, clarity, and coherence, and your document is proofread to correct all English language errors including grammar, punctuation, capitalization, verb tense, spelling, sentence structure, and typography, as well as reviewing your references, citations, formatting, and presentation. Finally, the organization and transitions of your essay will be evaluated to ensure that your argument develops logically.
  • Two-Round Editing. We know that two sets of eyes are better than one. That’s why every submission to Youdemy is edited by two of our highly skilled staff members. Our two-proofreader model is central to our mission of providing the highest quality proofreading services available.
  • Native English Editors. Editors are native English speakers. Youdemy has a team of experienced editors who come to us from top universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale, McGill, Cambridge, and Oxford who are experts at preparing documents for submission and publication. Your document is professionally edited and proofread by language specialists who are native speakers of English. Our editors have knowledge of a variety of professional and academic fields and are qualified to expertly refine your particular type of document.
  • Free re-editing of your edited document or money back. If your manuscript is rejected by any journal due to English language errors after we’ve edited it, let us know and we will offer a free re-edit or a full refund. Applies only if no textual changes were made to the manuscript after our edits. Editing, proofreading, and formatting – all are included in a single fee! In the rare cases that you are not completely satisfied with your edited document, Youdemy will promptly revise the document according to your requirements, for free! Your editor will also answer questions about your edited document or recheck previously edited text, for no extra charge.
