The hourly rate is $40, and we require a deposit for 5 hours for most manuscripts around 200 pages, and this deposit could satisfy the total cost depending on the amount of corrections.  Should the dissertation require more time, WEX will contact you about further costs. 

This service is restricted to dissertations that have been edited for format by the Writers' Exchange. The WEX editor will correct your entire manuscript  with the exception of those areas that only the student can correct; such as, elements of the references and citations. Generally, WEX editors complete the full edit within a week. We also provide a "rush order" should you need your document corrected within 72 hours. 

If interested, please submit your dissertation in both the final Word document and the WEX edited PDF. Please add any other relevant documents. For example, a Word document listing all missing information identified by the previous editor (citations & references).  Once received, WEX will forward your file to the WEX Correction Editor. 

Turnaround Time:

  • WEX editors will complete your requested work in about 10 business days (2 weeks), unless the document requires extensive additional work; in that case, WEX will contact you before proceeding.
  • WEX is closed on weekends. All submissions on weekends are considered submitted on the following business day.
  • Should you need your document edited within a short timeframe, we have an expedited editing option in limited cases for an additional charge of $50 - $100, depending on length of manuscript, for completion within 5 business days (1 week) following the submission date.

Rush Editing Fee:

$50: up to 100 pages

$100: up to 225 pages

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
