Students often find formatting to be the most frustrating part of writing their dissertations. This is because they are primarily focussed on getting their ideas down on paper, rather than getting page numbers in the right place and the headings accurate and standardized.

Dr. Anna Malik, Senior Managing Editor

Our Formatting Services

Our professional editors have expertise and experience in formatting the following elements using these styles— APA, MLA, Harvard, Chicago Manual of Style, Vancouver, Turabian, ASA, AAA, AMA, AP, IEEE, OSCOLA:

  • Margins, page numbers, running heads, headers, headings.

  • Reference list entries, and cross-checking these with in-text citations*.

  • Front matter pages (e.g., title page, table of contents, list of figures, list of tables, abstract, acknowledgments).

  • Fonts, punctuation, acronyms, indentation, and quotes.

  • Tables, graphs, figures, charts, and equations (which we can create or reformat per any style guide).

  • Appendices.

  • Footnotes, endnotes, and bibliography.

  • We typically charge $0.07/word for formatting reference lists, $2/page for main text formatting, $5/figure or $10/table, and an additional charge for front-matter pages.

  • We guarantee our formatting will meet the submission guidelines of any university or journal.


*We cannot verify your references for accuracy. Instead, our editors flag incomplete references or non-matching references and in-text citations, and provide guidance about how to format and/or populate them.

I have no complaints. The turnaround time was fast and the price was fair. My manuscript reads much better, more scholarly now! I am very happy with the edited product and I would use Dissertation Editor in the future. I would also recommend Dissertation Editor to my colleagues and friends!
