According to Harvard University, a good thesis is made up of two main parts.  It should let the reader know what point you plan to argue, and it should “telegraph” how you plan to argue.  Anyone who has written a thesis knows it must also be free of spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and similar issues that will threaten its authenticity in the eyes of those you want to take it seriously.

Basically, if you take the time to formulate a point, do the required research and thoughtfully put your thoughts on paper, it had better be free of mistakes.  That means no spelling errors, no grammar problems and it must be easy to read for the intended audience.

Have You Ever Done This?

Whether you’re writing a thesis, an article or another important piece of work, self-editing can sometimes prove completely ineffective.  Have you ever read over your work, then read it again and even a third time, only to miss the same issue every single time?  There might be a word that doesn’t belong, one that should be there but isn’t, or a glaring spelling mistake and it just escapes your detection every time.

There’s probably a science behind this phenomenon, but the point is that it does happen.  If it happens to you while you’re writing a thesis you won’t look like the professional academic you want to be.  Making these kinds of mistakes makes the writing seem lazy, poorly thought out or even unintelligent.  And this creates the perception that the actual content of the thesis is lazy, poorly thought out or unintelligent.

Here’s What We Can Do

Since you’re not lazy or unintelligent and your thesis makes valid arguments, don’t give anyone an excuse to wander off the topic while they are reading.  Re:word editing and proofreading services will clean up all the typos, grammar, spelling, formatting and other issues that might otherwise distract from your solid piece of work.

Perhaps more than any other kind of writing, you want the readers of your thesis to see only the thoughts, concepts and ideas you are trying to prove.  How you present those ideas and concepts is a key factor in how your thesis is accepted.  Even a few mistakes can make a world of difference, so leave those details to the experts who do it every day.  If you’re writing a thesis or will be in the near future, give us a call and we’ll let you know how we can help.
