CAN STUDENT DO ‘CUSTOM EDITING’ BY OWN?
Category : Uncategorized
What is it? Is it just re-checking your paper once again to find out silly mistakes and improve that accordingly? Then why are you looking for a service? Wait! Don’t go for that word ‘Custom Editing’. It is nothing but kind of proof reading your paper, point out your mistakes and improve your paper according to academic guidelines. Editing is not always related to Press and Newspapers and it not just means only deleting extra and non-useful words. We have a conventional idea about editing that is to change entire concept written by writer to reform it into editor’s conception. But it is wrong. Editing always follows some principles like ethical writing, removing unnecessary words, rechecking punctuation, grammars and ultimately establish institutional belief in that article. Here ‘Custom Editing’ means conventional form of editing that is too easy for students and they can do it on their own if they follow some certain principles. Some guidelines we are giving below for custom editing that hope will be helpful for students. Please follow our guidelines;
Look at structure: It is like skeleton of your paper. If your structure or draft is approved by your supervisor, then go for a good sleep at night. Because your 60% of assignment is done. Rest is only filling up the structure with relevant points that is too much easy for you. It is like rough sketch of drawing. If we approve our rough sketch then we give our final touch on it for presentation. Right? So, be careful about preparing your assignment or report structure. In case of research paper, I will advice you to definitely approve your research draft by your instructor otherwise, it will be painful for you in upcoming days. If your structure is ok, then 80% of editing is done. So be careful while you are preparing your assignment structure. Remember, your base must be solid; rest is covering and painting on the skeleton.
Punctuation: Yes, it is basic rule for custom editing. Your sentence may not be too long and obviously too short. Construct your sentence for academic writing between 15-20 words. Use of too long sentence can deconstruct reader’s mind therefore, sometime understanding key points of your analysis seem difficult.
Basic Grammar: There is no option in getting relief from grammar. Basic grammar of your paper must and must be correct. Sometime, students with weak grammar sense have used mixed tenses in their writing. It is too pathetic to read and understand for readers. So, be careful about your grammatical issues. Now, many grammars checking software’s are available on the internet, but those might not be helpful until or unless you have a basic idea about construct sentences and used tenses. So, use short sentences that will more or less help you to reduce your grammatical mistakes and proof read properly.
Citation format: Citation is too much important in academic writing. Writers use it for proving authentication of their paper. Various kinds of citations style and formats are there but in your assignment, you need to use proper format of your instructed citation. Otherwise, your paper will loose its authentication value. It happens for most of the students that they get fewer marks for improper citations and incorrect format though their grammar, punctuation and others basic parameters of writing academic paper is correct. So, please take it seriously while you are assigned yourself for custom editing of your assignment.
Graphical presentation: Graphical presentation is visual literacy. Sometime, pictures tell us the entire story that seems difficult to understand through writing. Without having any picture, it looks too boring to read a fat book. Therefore, use some relevant, graphs, pictures or images in your assignment or academic paper to make it interesting and dynamic to your readers. Don’t use unnecessary images but relevant graphs, statistical data you can put to increase authenticity of your paper.
Headings and Sub points: Make sure, your paper has some relevant heading and sub headings. It is too tough and irritating for us to read long paragraphs. For readers, it seems very hard to understand the actual intention of writer. So, if we use some relevant headings and subheadings in our academic paper especially for dissertation, it will be interesting and more acceptable for readers.
Pictorial TOC: TOC or table of content will be short reflection of your entire assignment. It will be like a trailer of your assignment or dissertation. So if you want to make it nicely, then use some relevant headings and subheadings and put it under table of content to prepare a short glance trailer of your assignment. For dissertation or research paper, preparing good table of content will help you in getting good marks, as your instructor is well-known about your all relevant points from your TOC.
Theoretical application: No, readers don’t want to know the theory but only its application. Most of the students have made mistake in this section. They all are written about the used theory and its problems. But it is easily available. Readers want to know about your views about that theory. So, your theoretical application is must in your paper otherwise, your all hard work will be in vain.
Comparison: Along with all relevant information, correct grammar, images, and punctuation, you must have to apply your critical notion in your paper. For this, use theoretical comparison to show your critical analysis. Raising arguments will help you in developing your in-depth analysis in the academic paper.
Re-reading: Once, complete all the entire process, just re-read your paper for just once again. Result??? Your silly mistakes, more improvements, developed analytical technique will be reflected through your re-reading that will make your assignment best creation of yours.
So, leave your all anxieties and start writing your assignment. Work as bets as you can. Our custom editing guidelines will help you in getting good marks in your assignment.
