WEX offers a Post-defense Dissertation Editing Package starting at $425 for Antioch students and alumni. 

Your dissertation is complete and approved by your committee, pending some changes. This package helps you through the feedback from your committee to generate a final and more polished manuscript. 

With the Post-defense Dissertation Editing Package, the WEX editor meets with you initially for an hour to to discuss the requested changes; edits the document with special attention to revised areas; and meets with you again for an hour to discuss any additional revisions you may need to make. The package includes:

  • 1 hour initial coaching meeting
  • up to 8 hours of focused editing on revised sections, and cursory review of the whole document for general textual concerns (checking for redundancy, typos, misspellings, etc.)
  • 1 hour summary coaching meeting to discuss any further revisions

This package provides a discounted price for 10 hours of work with a completed dissertation. Additional services may be discussed if appropriate, in which case WEX will bill you for any additional hours. 

This service is only for post-defense dissertations; for pre-defense editing or other dissertation editing, please use the usual editing form: https://wex.submittable.com/submit/85014/proposal-thesis-dissertation-editing-au-students

To get started, please upload the final draft of your dissertation, as well as the most recent version with committee feedback (if applicable). Once you submit, a WEX editor will contact you to arrange an initial meeting. If the revisions requested by your committee are extensive, this package may not be not enough and there could be need for continued editing. You may discuss this with your editor if appropriate.

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.

*This package does not include reference cross-checking for citations. If you'd like reference cross-checking, or other services not mentioned here, please email us at wex@antioch.edu.
