FAQs - Academic

Yes, many of our clients are located outside the United States and we have many editors who specialize in editing and proofreading academic documents. Simply choose your editor and submit your document with payment (we accept major credit and debit cards as well as PayPal). If you need an invoice in your native currency, please email us at info@editorworld.com at any time.

The Track Changes Markup may be turned off. If you’re using a recent version of Microsoft Word, select the Review tab. In the Track Changes section, make sure that “All Markup” is selected in the top drop-down menu.

If the invoice you receive from Editor World upon completing your editing request is not accepted as proof of editing, you can add a Certificate of Editing (optional add-on) to your transaction for $5. The editing certificate will be sent to your email and become available for download in the Documents section of your Client Console after the editor uploads the edited document.

Our editors use the Track Changes feature of Microsoft Word so you can see the changes made to your document. You can choose to accept all changes at one time or to review each change individually. In recent versions of Microsoft Word, select the Review tab. Within the Track Changes section, you can choose to accept all changes at once, or to accept or reject each change individually. Within the document itself, you can right-click on individual changes to accept or reject the changes. If your editor has inserted comments, you will also need to delete those within the Comments section in the Review tab.

Yes, our editors can follow a specific style guide when editing your paper. Please provide specific instructions when you submit your editing request. The style guidelines will be applied to the in-text citations and reference list, but if you need them applied to other specific areas of the document, such as tables, provide clear, specific instructions for your editor.

Editor World provides professional editing services to improve your academic work and prepare it for publication. Our professional editors will improve the clarity and readability of your paper, focusing on the flow as well as grammar, word usage, spelling, punctuation, consistency, and style. Depending on the stage of your document within the editing process, multiple rounds of editing may be needed, which you can discuss with the editor you select. Our professional editors will make revisions to ensure consistency throughout the document and apply the style guide of your choice to your citations and references. Our editors will also insert comments where issues remain, such as where flow could be improved, the information is incomplete, and or where other improvements could be made.
