There is a vast difference between having academic skills and writing skills. Being a good researcher doesn’t necessarily make you a good writer. If you can’t express your research progress and outcomes with your target audience, it may seem as though you should not work on that research in the first place. The primary goal of a research paper is to make readers aware of a fact or matter. If readers cannot grasp the impact of your research, then all of your laborious efforts seem to go to waste.
To get a proper assessment of your academic paper, you should edit your draft paper repeatedly. Unfortunately, for most people, editing only means correcting spelling and grammar mistakes. At Scientific Editing, we edit for much more. We cannot stress enough how vital editing is for an academic paper. Editing is critical for the success of your academic writing. In fact, most prominent universities encourage students to edit their masters or Ph.D. thesis by a professional editor.
Scientific Editing provides you the perfect copy-editing services for your academic paper.
With our copy-editing services, you can rest assured that your paper will have clarity, consistency, proper formatting, zero grammar and punctuation errors, and proper citations. Let’s look at the details of these copy editing services.
Clarity is the readability of your text. If your writing has clarity, the reader will understand it easily. You should treat your paper as teaching material to your reader. The reader shouldn’t have to read between the lines to understand what you are saying. Writers and editors put clarity at the highest value as it is the hardest to achieve.
There is no hard and fast rule for achieving clarity in a paper. The more time you put into having clarity in your writing, the easier it will be to comprehend its message. Scientific Editing ensures that the clarity of your paper is uninterrupted. There are two steps in achieving clarity for your writing-
- Clarity of argument
- Clarity of words.
The clarity of arguments reinforces your research agenda. If you don’t have clarity of argument, readers will lose focus, and your paper’s theme will get blurred. Clarity of words ensures your article is understandable without any jargon and unnecessary vocabulary. Our copy-editing service will check the clarity of your paper in terms of argument and vocabulary. Our experts will gauge the clarity of your writing objectively.
- Consistency and Uniformity
Consistency and uniformity mean that your entire writing should express one theme. No part of it should stand out as unnecessary. Your arguments should gradually lead the reader to the same conclusion and thus validate it. Uniformity also refers to the cohesion of your writing style. As English is a rather adaptive language, it can be easy to mix up many different styles in writing; especially, if you are not a native English speaker.
The task of maintaining both the consistency of arguments and the consistency of writing style is quite hard for the writer. Here at Scientific Editing, we put our best effort to make your paper uniform and consistent. With careful editing from our experts, you can rest assured your paper will pass the hurdle of consistency in terms of arguments and writing style.
Formatting is essential for the perfect presentation of your writing. If you use an unusual format or use it inconsistently, readers might get distracted, and following your thesis might be a struggle. Think of formatting as a universal language that all readers in your field of interest will understand.
There are standard formats that writers and editors must follow. The three standard schools of style generally followed by writers and editors are the APA (American Psychological Association) style, MLA (Modern Language Association) Style, and CMS Style (Chicago Manual of Style). These styles get updated several times a year. Many journals have their own set of formats that must be followed by the writers. Here at Scientific Editing, we check the formatting your writing by checking these points:
References and quotations
An error of grammar can ruin the credibility of your academic writing. In creative or experimental writing, you can tweak the rule to some extent, but in academic writing, you always have to follow the rules. The most common error found in academic writing is the inconsistency of tense. In English, there are 12 different tenses, and non-native speakers often get them mixed up. This inconsistency of tense can occur at sentence level or passage level.
Another common mistake is the improper use of the possessive form. For example- ‘Darwin’s theory of evolution’ suggests singular possessive, and it is expressed as apostrophe s. there are cases where we don’t use the possessive form, such as years- 1980s instead of 1980 ‘s, Plural acronym- CEOs instead of CEO’s. At Scientific Editing, we provide you with editing without any grammar error, which will increase the credibility of your academic paper.
- Punctuation Error
Punctuation is essential for a proper understanding of writing. It tells us how words and sentences relate to each other. A common punctuation error is the inappropriate use of the apostrophe. We use an apostrophe for possessive form and contractions. For example, “Steve’s paper was published; you shouldn’t write it.” We used an apostrophe in the possessive form and an apostrophe in the contraction. Another common mistake is using the quotation mark when you are not quoting.
If you want to emphasize something, you should use bold or italic font for it. Italicizing a word alerts the reader that they should note what you are emphasizing.
The comma is often a very poorly handled punctuation in an academic paper. Some writers use too many commas, and some don’t even bother using one. If you are not mindful of the position of commas, the meaning of your sentence can alter.
The use of it’s and its is often confusing to many writers. It’s is used when we are using a contraction: it is or it has. A straightforward way to distinguish the use of it’s and its is to check if you can replace them with it is or it has. If it is replaceable with it is or it has, use the apostrophe version it’s.
- Reference Check
Referencing is an essential part of any academic paper.
Why should you seek academic copy-editing services
- To Get Objective Feedback from a Fresh Pair of Eyes
Writers often overlook common mistakes and errors in their paper as they go through the work regularly and develop a familiarity with their work. This familiarity often causes them to think of a wrong as right and go along with it. Another fact is that judging our work is always tough for us.
