Dr. Marquita Hockaday

Dr. Hockaday is our lovely member of the Editorial Assessment team. With over 15 years of experience in academia, she helps students succeed, specifically those from diverse and marginalized backgrounds. She is skilled in Literature, Lesson Planning, Editing, Educational Technology, and Curriculum Development.

She is currently working on two projects for us at Dissertation Editor, but is excited to see them come to fruition. She says, "I'm using my background in teaching/curriculum leadership and creating some curricula that I'm hoping we can share with clients. I'm starting on the ground level with research questions and helping clients who are in the proposal/beginning stages. I'm using Canva to create something really nice & eye-catching 🙂." Dr. Hockaday prides herself in helping clients understand how our services work, and leaves a smile on their faces with her upmost care for clients' education.

As we have an Academic Integrity Policy for clients, she is also using her background to create a Code of Ethics for Dissertation Editor. She believes it is valuable to protect both our clients and the team members. Her empathy and care for academia has made her a valuable asset to D|E, and a wonderful member to look up to. 

You can find her LinkedIn here for further information on her credentials.

Dr. Roda and his team at D.E. are the editors for my academic writing. My story with Dr. Roda is that I am a clinical assistant professor at a medical school. To move my career forward I am writing to increase the quantity and quality of my published scholarship. Because my appointment is clinical, all these efforts are on my own time and I have no secretarial help. In these circumstances DE has been supportive in the most essential way. They are available to help with all phases of my writing projects, starting with choosing the best journal, editing drafts, in house peer-review, formatting the citations to those exact specifications, from the latest edition of the APA Publication Manual or the Turabian manual. Finally, they are helpful as I must revise and answer the reviewers in subsequent revisions. For a physician without any administrative resources, DE has helped fill-in all those gaps. Presently, we are working on my second big writing project with DE editors. My first paper with DE as my editors was accepted by the first journal by all the reviewers on the first submission without any recommended editorial changes. As author with more than five years of work with DE editors, I anticipate continued success with these competant and helpful editors.
