this is a FIXED PRICE job. Bid are intended for the full job (not hourly, per page, per word, or else). Bid the total amount you are willing to accept, and bud only if you are interested in completing the job for the amount you bid. I went to a great length to make the ad and work expected as clear as possible, if you have questions feel free to ask.
I had to re-post the job (after wasting a significant amount of hours) because I awarded it to someone who then asked me almost 4 times as much.
I am a non-native English speaker (Italian) and I am looking for someone to proofread my dissertation proposal for grammar, syntax, and clarity. I am looking to get a more polished draft to present to my advisor (he will still review and correct it), so it does not need to be the perfect final version yet. Experience with academic writing is preferred.
I mainly need help with:
○ Cleaning convoluted and verbose sentences with the occasional “clunky” transition
○ Obvious mistakes (third person, articles, etc...) that I tend to miss when reading my own
○ My native language may influence my Syntax and choice of words, making sentences
“awkward” for readers
I am looking to receive a word document with tracked changes and any useful suggestions/comments you may have. I'm also open to any suggestions in terms of flow, logical order, or structure. In case you can't understand some sentences, feel free to reach out and check with me or make a note in a comment and we will figure it out.
The first job will be about 18 pages (5400 words, Times New Romans, normal margins, double-spaced), divided in three files:
1) 3 pages (~850 words) research question and motivation
2) 5 Pages (~1500 words) introduction/summary of the overall work
3) 10 Pages (~3000 words) second part of Lit. review introducing core concepts.
If you could complete at least the fist file (3 pages) within the day that would be much appreciated. If we are both satisfied with the collaboration, I will soon have other parts ready. I expect the final number of pages to be around 80-120.
Below I am attaching a page to give you an idea about my writing so that you can decide whether to accept the job. I should also mention that timing is a bit of an issue, so the sooner you are able to do it, the better.
I look forward to working with you!
