Rates and
Pricing

Our Pricing System

Academic Editing and Statistics require nuanced and multi-faceted work, so our process is designed to respond to this. Unlike most online editing services, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to editing and pricing. Rather, for every order, we make a careful assessment of your document and provide a quote that directly correlates with the actual work your document requires. Similarly, with Statistics, we thoughtfully review your methodology, research questions, and analysis plan (if you already have one) to determine the specific analytical needs of your project.  

We also offer retainer options for clients who anticipate long-term work with us. Read about our retainer packages.

Our Rates

Editing

Our quotes are determined by a based on the particular needs of the document to be edited.  We arrive at a quote through a detailed tally of the document’s specific editing requirements and formatting elements.  We begin with the prose word count, multiplied by the rate for the chosen level of editing, then add references and/or notes, plus tables, figures, front matter, table of contents, lists of tables and figures, appendices, etc. as applicable.  This means that there is no one-size-fits-all price for editing and that the price we quote you is reflective as much as possible of the actual work your document requires.

We understand that everyone’s project and budget is unique. If our pricing or service offerings don’t suit your needs, please grant us the opportunity to customize them accordingly. Payment plans available upon request.  We’re happy to be flexible and work with you to provide the service you require at a price you can afford.

Full Support Quantitative Analyses

Analysis Planning and Full Analysis Comprehensive Service Package $3500.00* 

This package is best suited for a quantitative client who has a solid grasp on their research questions and hypotheses, but do not yet know which analyses need to be done and would like help conducting them once they have been determined. 

This package includes the full analysis planning package where our statistician will read through the entire document and study materials and then focus on your research questions and hypotheses prior to the development of the analysis plan. This process assigns variables or groups of variables to every concept you discuss in your research questions and specific analyses to each relationship between concepts you wish to test. Once the plan is complete, you will have a follow up consultation with your statistician to discuss the plan and any questions you have prior to going forward.

Next, your statistician will go forward and conduct the analyses determined in the analysis plan. The statistician will assess the descriptive statistics, assumptions of your analyses, and analyses. After that, your statistician will create a written interpretation guide, a bullet-pointed guide to helping you understand the results of the analysis in terms of your research questions. This will include the relevant tables, graphs, and figures. You will then also have a follow up call with your statistician to walk you through the results and any questions you have going forward. 

Additionally, you will have two extra follow up calls that can be used at any point throughout the package. Most commonly they are used to ask additional questions as you draft your Results chapter or to prepare for the oral defense. 

* PLEASE NOTE: The Comprehensive Service package cannot be used for the following types of Data Analysis:

  • Structural Equation Modeling based analyses (including but not limited to Structural  Equation Modeling, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Path Analysis, Growth Curve models)
  • Projects with more than 3 research questions, or additional analyses not included in the analysis plan or those not requested prior to completion of the analysis. 
    • Please contact our Stats Team if your project has more than 3 research questions for a custom package
  • Qualitative Analysis or Mixed Methods
  • Follow up analyses (i.e. post hoc tests, nonparametric tests) or table/figure/charts that accompany the initial planned analyses are included as long as they are within the parameters of the initial analyses and not new tests.
  • Follow up analyses and update requests can be requested for 30 days after the analysis has been completed.

* Please also note that our data analysis services do not include results delivered in specific formatting, nor does it include formatting or editing any chapters or other writing.
