Developmental Editing

Developmental editing is a phase in the dissertation writing process where our team of editors work with researchers to resolve “big picture” issues in their manuscripts, including structure, form and narrative. Because of its focus on wider narrative elements, this type of editing normally won’t address sentence-level errors such as punctuation and grammar typos.

Good developmental editing will bear your research committee and examiners in mind and assess your work in relation to academic standards and expectations. Only once your manuscript has been revised, reshaped, and developed will it be ready for a copy edit and proofread.
