— What people have said —

Without my mentor and friend [Dr O], this project would never have started, continued or finished

This thesis would not have been possible without [Dr O], who assisted and supported me in every way. Thank you for all the time you spent discussing issues with me, correcting my English, responding to thousands of mails (per day), and overall, for trusting me

I would like to sincerely thank [Dr O], for his dedicated effort in assisting, guiding and encouraging me through the duration of my thesis

Firstly, a big thanks to [Dr O], who had to put up with me asking a million questions every day, when I was supposedly allowed one, and for all his encouragement and guidance over this last year

Don't just take these people's word for it. An impressive six species have even been named after him to honor his contribution to science:

  • Awhiowhio osheai (a sponge)
  • Brucerolis osheai (an isopod)
  • Calvetia osheai (a bryozoan)
  • Gonodactylellus osheai (a mantis shrimp)
  • Magnoteuthis osheai (a deep-sea squid)
  • Vulcanolepas osheai (a deep-sea barnacle)

Dr O (Dr Steve O'Shea) is highly regarded

— Rates

For editing of commercial reports, CVs, manuscripts, conference presentations, and assignments, DrO offers Express (24h), Business (48h) and Standard (72h) rates, subject to word count and  availability. Special rates are offered for large and complex Theses: Crisis (4 days), Thesis (7 days) and Chill (10 days) rates. For theses it is essential that you check our availability in advance, asit can be hard to help you the night before your thesis is due

All editing work comes with a free 2nd-round clarification service

You can be charged by the hour, or by word count, whichever is cheapest for you. This usually depends on the level of editing required (proof, copy or substantive). For example, if your file is 10,000 words long, but it takes only 3 hours to edit (because what you wrote was beautiful) then you would be charged at the cheaper rate (3 hours) than a set rate for 10,000 words. Estimates of cost based on word count can be found in the table, but please understand that these are estimates. Word count is just one indication of cost
