You've worked this hard, and your manuscript deserves another pair of eyes to ensure its success. Whether it's a dissertation, journal article, or book manuscript, you want the polish to appeal to your audience. Whatever your writing needs, WEX editors are here to help. WEX editors provide excellent services at a reasonable $55 per-hour rate. On staff are PhD editors/coaches and professionally certified editors. We offer a variety of services, including: 

  • Editing for content to provide feedback on writing elements such as organization, clarity of content,  specificity of research design and methods, sentence-level revisions, and word choice. This is best done before the document is complete.
  • Proofreading to correct typos, grammar and punctuation, wrong words, and other minor errors at the  sentence level. This is best done on a completed manuscript/dissertation when major revisions are no longer likely.
  • Format/Style Editing to adjust the formatting of your document according to a specific format and style  sheet. This format editing is best accomplished with a final draft of the manuscript. You are expected to have all content, including in-text citations, in place before requesting this service. Combined Proofreading and  Format Editing: a completed dissertation/manuscript benefits from a  complete examination of format and proofreading to ensure that what is     submitted is a polished finalized text. 

For each of these, we provide a document with tracked changes for you to review and accept. All of these services are available at $55/hour. 

Since most manuscripts/proposals/theses/dissertations consume over 5 hours of review, we ask that you submit a deposit of $275 for 5 hours. When your manuscript is completed, WEX will contact you by email should additional payment be required. Once you pay the additional amount, your manuscript will be sent via email. If no additional payment is required, your dissertation will be sent directly to you. Any balance remaining may be used for resubmission or for new documents. WEX does not offer refunds of payments for any of its services.
