Edit My Paper’s Frequently Asked Questions

Does EditMyPaper provide basic proofreading or comprehensive editing?

EditMyPaper provides a combined service that includes proofreading included in the editing service. With four service levels to choose from, there's an option for every writer. The editor will correct your spelling, grammar, punctuation, style, flow, and consistency issues. The service level you choose will affect the depth of editing and education/experience the editor has working with documents similar to yours.

What type of customer service or support do you offer?

We provide prompt customer service for any inquiry via live chat or email. This allows us to respond to many inquiries fast and only by actual editors who can review and discuss your question or requirements. We don't outsource our customer service, so you'll always get one of our friendly EMP Team members when emailing or chatting with us.

How do I know what to expect from my editor and what will you do for paper?

See examples of the various levels of human-based editing we provide here: Editing Examples. We also offer a Pro level, consisting of our most requested editors from our subject categories!

Proofreading vs. editing — what's the difference?

Proofreading focuses on smaller issues such as spelling, punctuation, and broad inconsistencies (both numerical and textual), and more. Editing, sometimes referred to as copy-editing, involves more than simple proofreading by fixing core writing issues including word choice, flow, grammar, consistency, and style. Editing also ensures each sentence is clear, makes sense, and is to the point. Editors often fix awkward expressions, incorrectly used words or phrases, and other similar issues. EditMyPaper's complete editing service will boost your clarity, readability, and overall tone of your text, while providing you with helpful comments in the margins.

Do you have admissions essay or application essay editors available?

Yes, we have specific editors who are approved to edit admissions documents including application essays, statements of purpose, and application writing samples. These editors know what it takes to get accepted (because they've all been through university and most have a Ph.D.). We always ensure the paper you submit, regardless of topic or quality, gets to the right editor and is returned on-time, every time! Most of all, our services are confidential and hassle-free, meaning you can relax knowing you're getting the best possible service, and it will never be disclosed we assisted you!

Are there science, biology, or research editors available to revise technical writing?

Yes, at EditMyPaper we have a wide variety of editors available for all disciplines and research areas. There are also specific editors who are experts at tackling pre-publication journal articles, as well as citation and formatting experts. Our editors include current and retired university professors, Ph.D. professional editors, and researchers. You can submit your paper online here if you're ready. We'll ensure the right editor edits your paper and of course, satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. Alternatively, you can email us or start a live chat if you have any questions.

What if I want you to critique my paper and comment on it, not just edit it and make it read perfectly?

We can do that! We offer additional options for a nominal fee including critiques, extra comments, formatting, and extra editing/ESL service. You can choose these options once you are on Step 3 of our document submission portal.

English is not my first language and I think my paper may need a LOT of editing. Can you help?

Yes, we can! We're experts at understanding and editing ESL writing. Our editors consistently demonstrate their ability to edit and correct all levels of papers! You should select the ESL/Extra Editing additional service when you upload your essay so your editor is able to fully correct all possible writing mistakes.

Do you edit for content or fact-check? Can you write my paper?

Although we don’t usually fact-check or tell you if something may be factually wrong with your paper during editing, we do generally point out obvious inaccuracies or logic issues for you. Can't find what you need or require a custom order? Chat with our friendly live chat team at the bottom right corner of your screen to tell us what you need help with.

What's Edit My Paper's story?

We have a team of over 500 editors who have attended various top 10 universities in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia who are fully vetted and qualified to not only proofread, but edit your paper completely. Edit My Paper was started by a group of university graduates and has grown steadily over the past ten years. It's become popular with high school, college and university students, as well as professionals who need an accurate editor to correct their papers and improve their writing. Our editors are actual people who are on-call 24/7 and genuinely enjoy reading, correcting, and improving writing!

Why should you hire an essay editor, rather than doing it yourself?

Hiring an essay editor is important because they know how to write essays for college and university students. They also know how to structure an essay, and what information is needed to create a strong essay. Our editors are expert writers with an excellent understanding of how to write interesting and engaging content, which means they can understand your topic and it is written in a way that makes sense. Finally, you want someone who cares about your grade, which means they will do everything they can to help you succeed. We care and want you to succeed, which is why our editors always aim to impress.  

Why are there no free essay editing services?

Due to the nature of editing, which involves highly educated humans spending time meticulously combing over your writing issues, it's not possible to offer a free editing service at this time. However, we do offer affordable editing starting at $7 per 325 words which is enough to make a significant difference in the quality of your writing.

How do I know if my essay, report, manuscript, or business document needs editing?

If you need help improving a paper, report, essay, or any other type of academic work, you should ask for professional editing from a company like ours. If English is your second language, it's also a good idea to have an editor improve your writing before submitting it for grading. We offer affordable editing services for students who want to improve their grades. Our editors are experts in their respective field, and they will provide you with a high-quality paper that will impress your professor, or the intended audience. If you are writing for a publication, then you need to check your work for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other errors, as well as ensure it's properly formatted. Our team is ready to assist with any writing-related issue, 24/7, 365 days a year.

There’s so much choice out there, why should I choose Edit My Paper?

The internet is full of people and 'businesses' that purport to provide one thing, but give you another — often something of lower quality. Most editing companies operating online tend to outsource their editing to countries like India and Cyprus, where although their editors do speak English and may have a degree, there's a certain cultural competence they lack. Their editing is often quite low-quality, and their clients are often dissatisfied. Our editors have grown up immersed in English and have been educated at a top 10 prestigious university. They are qualified, dedicated, and are not paid until you are fully satisfied. Our service doesn't end after submitting your document and returning your edited paper, as we are always available via email or live chat to further assist. We offer four editing levels to ensure everyone is accommodated. Our service is reasonably priced, provides an abundance of choice, and produces quick, accurate results. Choose an editing service that has a reputable business standing behind them — choose an editor today! (We're open 24/7 for your convenience too!)

Do paper editors have any special skills that make them better at their job?

Paper editors have a lot of experience editing articles for academic publications and student papers. They are all English experts who studied at top universities in North America or Europe, and have all passed our rigorous English language editing tests. They are also audited and reviewed by our clients, so you know your paper is in good hands when you choose EditMyPaper's editing service. Furthermore, they know how to write concisely, and understand what makes writing interesting. This means they can quickly identify and correct all your writing issues, leaving you with a vastly improved document.
