Critical Reader Services

Editlink offers a variety of critical reading services for postgraduates and researchers. Critical reading is done once a manuscript has been fully edited but there is a need for that additional quality control element. This is important for journal articles, reports, theses and book chapters destined for highly demanding publishers and assessors. Our services include:

  • Thesis critical reading: We can provide you with feedback on your thesis, helping you to improve its clarity, structure, and argument.
  • Journal article critical reading: We can help you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your journal article, and to make sure that it is ready for submission.
  • Dissertation critical reading: We can help you to improve the overall quality of your dissertation, from its structure and argument to its writing style and presentation.
  • Book and book chapter critical reading: We can provide you with feedback on your book or book chapter, helping you to ensure that it is well-written, engaging, and persuasive.

Stages Involved

The critical reading process typically involves the following stages:

  1. Initial assessment: Our editors will read your work and provide you with an overview of their initial impressions. This will include feedback on the overall structure and argument of your work, as well as any areas that they believe could be improved.
  2. Detailed feedback: Our editors will then provide you with detailed feedback on your work, focusing on the following areas:
    • Clarity: Do your ideas flow smoothly and logically? Are your arguments easy to follow?
    • Structure: Is your work well-organized? Is there a clear beginning, middle, and end?
    • Argument: Is your argument convincing? Do you provide adequate evidence to support your claims?
    • Writing style: Is your writing clear, concise, and engaging?
    • Presentation: Is your work formatted in a professional manner?
  3. Discussion: Our editors will then discuss their feedback with you, answering any questions that you may have and working with you to develop a plan for improving your work.
