Academic Style Checking

At no extra charge, we will check the style of your references and citations according to the latest edition of the APA, MLA, Chicago, or Turabian style manual.

For an additional charge of $1.50/page (0.6¢/word), we will format and check the style of your overall document according to one of these manuals or according to institutional or publication guidelines. There is a minimum charge of $15.00 for this service. Overall academic style checking automatically adds 15 minutes per page to the turnaround time and increases the minimum turnaround time to 8 hours. A further additional charge or further additional turnaround time may be required in some cases.

Edit24-7 overall academic style checking exclusively corrects formatting, grammar, spelling, and punctuation according to your chosen style. We inform you of missing references or missing information within references, but we do not supply missing references or missing information. We do not check the factual correctness of references and citations or the spellings of most proper names.
