Proofreading is hard and non-creative work. That is why some professors even encourage Master and doctorate-level students to use proofreading help.

According to statistics, the top reason why even the best essays and research papers get low grades is due to a lack of proper proofreading. It can be compared to a great resume that contains style, grammar, and terminology flaws. However, such a carefree attitude and lack of attention is not always the case! Nerds prepared a list of issues that make proofreading help the most demanded service at Nerdify.

When it comes down to proofreading, most students think that they only have to check their essays and research papers for repetition, grammar, and punctuation, but nothing else. Some students go further and try to see if their article sounds good.

As a rule, it takes a lot of editing, cutting out the lengthy parts, and tireless editing of the thesis and introduction.

Only an expert knows what to look for and can specifically find the problems to address them with you.

The thing is, proofreading is so much more than that! To cut it short, your work has to make sense and follow all the bits and pieces of the grading rubric. This is what they always mean when they say “format, writing mechanics, spelling.” It is not that difficult to find spelling and basic grammar mistakes. However, formatting rules, logic, and in-text citations is another matter.
