1. It is generally impossible to proofread or edit your own written work. You need a second set of eyes to find your typos, spelling errors, and grammatical mistakes. Notice a typo in the title of this article?
2. It can be very frustrating for an academic adviser to give feedback on the content of your research paper, thesis, or dissertation if he or she is spending a lot of time correcting the clarity, grammar, and spelling of your document. You should give your adviser well-written chapters and sections of your paper, thesis, or dissertation so he or she can focus on your work rather than spend time trying to figure out what you are trying to say.
3. A professional editor can make sure your paper is understandable and free of errors. You can ask the professional editor you hire to focus on what is important to you.
4. Your academic adviser will think more highly of your written work if it is, at a minimum, well-written. He or she does not want to spend hours deciphering the meaning of a paper and correcting minor mistakes. Using an editing service will make your work easier to read.
5. Don’t forget to thank your academic adviser for the time he or she spends helping you! You will need him or her to inform you of new jobs opening in your field, write recommendation letters, and work with you to submit journal articles from your thesis or dissertation. This makes your relationship with your academic adviser crucial for your career. People with poor relationships with their academic adviser are less likely to receive a good recommendation and to obtain their desired academic job.
