Editing a List of References

by Barbie in Research, Writing

When you’re writing a lengthy document like a thesis or dissertation, keeping track of your references can be challenging. Every source you cite needs to have a detailed entry on your List of References. In addition to providing the author(s), year of publication, title, publisher, and more, you have to ensure your references follow your style guide.

That’s where we come in. When we edit your document, we check every in-text citation against the references to verify the following:

  • Consistent spelling of author names and titles
  • Correct year
  • Valid entry in references

More often than not, we discover that a client unintentionally left off a few references, which is no surprise since such lengthy academic documents include dozens, if not hundreds, of sources.

Checking your references one by one is a tedious process. So, let us do it for you. This service is part of any comprehensive edit, but we can check your references as a separate service as well. Contact us today!
