Home > Dissertation Editing > Pricing
Giving a general quote for all types of academic editing work is not possible. Dissertations differ too much for that. The price depends mainly on whether it is a master's or doctoral dissertation. A doctoral dissertation is longer and more complex, requiring a greater amount of the editor's time, so the price is higher.
Exactica's dissertation editing prices are low, but not the lowest on the market. That's because we will not compromise the amount of time spent on a dissertation in order to drop the price. Good work is more important.
The prices listed reflect the average cost of editing a Master's or PhD dissertation, both for workshop graduates and non-graduates. It works out to about R54.00 per page.
Master's Dissertation *
Ph.D. Dissertation **
* Average length = 100 pages
** Average length = 200 pages
The prices quoted do not include appendices. It's usually not necessary to have them edited, given the materials they typically contain. You can do a perfectly acceptable job on them yourself. If, however, you want them edited, it can be arranged.
