Dissertation & Thesis Specialists
Dissertation-Editor.com specializes in assisting graduate students through every stage of the dissertation or thesis writing process. While many other companies spread themselves thin by offering a wide variety of services, our hiring process and professional training is focused entirely on dissertation and thesis services.
Personalized One-on-One Service
Don’t waste your time with impersonal Internet sites that won’t answer the phone or allow you to interact with your editor or consultant. Our goal is to offer the best service and attain the best results—whatever it takes. When you hire our firm, you are not sending your work to a faceless Internet site, but rather to an American-based team of dissertation editors and consultants who are ready to interact with you and ensure that your dissertation is ready to defend!
PhDs with Ivy League Credentials
Our team is composed entirely of PhDs who specialize in doctoral-level editing, formatting, research, statistics, and consultation. As dissertations are among the most sophisticated and demanding forms of writing, we draw our staff almost exclusively from Ivy League universities and other top-tier institutions. Our staff review dissertations and advise doctoral candidates every day as their profession and know exactly what it takes to get a dissertation approved.
