Editing Your Thesis

The formatting of your thesis will be checked by Grad Studies to ensure that it meets the requirements given in this section of the website. You are responsible for using correct grammar and spelling, consistent terminology, and clear writing throughout your thesis. Your supervisory committee should ensure that appropriate editing is done.

Hiring an Editor

Editors Canada has developed guidelines and resources for the ethical editing of both graduate and undergraduate student texts, including theses and dissertations. Students and supervisors are expected to discuss whether or not it is appropriate to hire an editor, and to agree on the editing tasks to be performed.
