PhD Research Editing


Please apply to this job with example of your previous work and native English speakers only. This job is a writing and editing project.

Ultimately I am looking for assistance over a longer term period. The background is that I am working full time and have been working on this PhD topic for several years. I am aiming to get the whole thing completed this year and will need some assistance at several stages. I would like to find someone I can work with and set up a series of milestone payments for various projects throughout the year.

The first project is to assist with the proposal and then after this we can work on some other projects. For example, I have a paper which was submitted to a journal and I have the feedback and need to re-write and re-submit based on this feedback. I may also will need assistance with the statistical analysis.

So, my situation is that I have been studying and researching my topic for a couple of years and unlike many PhD students I have yet to formally present my proposal, however I have already published some of my research and my supervisors suggest that finishing the thesis this year is very possible. So, I have lots of the literature and some early drafts but really need some fresh eyes to help bring all this together.

In terms of the most immediate task I have about 4-6 weeks to create a draft my proposal so I would like to get some assistance very soon. Ideally, to get completed within 2 weeks. I see the project broken down into stages.

Stage 1: Gap analysis (1-2 days)

Look at the proposal in its current form (about 40 pages), identify the sections which require additional work, assign responsibilities (some sections may be sensible for me to work on).

Check for plagiarism using an online tool and highlight any sections to be re-written from my draft (it is a copy-paste from some of my notes and I think there is some plagiarism in the 40 pages)

Identify and agree on an outline of each section of the proposal

Stage 2: Writing and Research (5 days)

Most of the literature review is already in place, the document needs sign-posting. What I mean is that it will have some extra text added 'So, in this section I will outline...... and then at the end of each section....This section has shown.....'

Development of draft survey (I already have the previous survey instruments for each part of my research model and need to bring all of this together) This aspect will need someone who is very familiar with academic research.

Stage 3: Editing and Proofing (5 days)

Checking each section against the outline and ensuring it meets the agreed scope.

I have 40 pages of the proposal. It has to be in the template that I will provide and most of the sections I need assistance with are the methods section.

The proposal is expected to be around 50-80 pages and with the signposting will certainly expand the size of the draft document I have

My topic is IT and management. I am looking at the role of the Information Systems leader. I am looking at innovation behaviors and a theory is call ambidexterity.
