How long to edit a thesis or academic paper?
Each thesis, assignment or academic treatise is different.
To give an estimate of the time it takes to edit or proofread a thesis, freelance editor, Susie Stevens would need to view the work. This also allows Susie to make an assessment of what is required: edit or proofread. Find out the difference between editing and proofreading.
Even for a standard edit of a 5000-word assignment, the work needs to be scheduled so allow at least a two-day turnaround. Often additional time is needed to get feedback from the writer about sentence structure, missing citations and/or bibliographical details.
For an edit of a 100,000-word thesis, allow at least two weeks. Again, work needs to be scheduled so early planning helps. Ideally, factor in one month for the edit of a long thesis such as a Masters or PhD. During this time, the editor will send corrections to the writer for comment and approval.
