Is proofreading accepted by my University?
Universities accept proofreading assistance for students in specific circumstances to enable academic achievement with plagiarism free papers and confident language skills. It is essential, we are familiar with the Australian Standards requirements in editing for Australian Universities.
Medical Presentations offers services to Universities, knowing high demand and waiting lists exist for student training sessions and editorial assistance. The intention of our editorial assistance is to develop the academic and scientific writing skills of the student.
Theses work: Universities sometimes require submission of an Editorial Assistance Request Form prior to supporting services.
Course work: Unit coordinators need to give approval prior to seeking services.
Essays: Intention is to develop the skills of the student with coaching. Feedback is given to students wishing to improve their academic writing and students for whom English is an additional language.
In some cases, an Australian Awards Scholarship for supplementary academic support can be attained for tutoring or editorial assistance.
In work performed by Medical Presentations, awareness and verification of the Australian Standards ensures compliance when editing documents.
Assistance is given and restricted to:
Standard C - Exemplars only are given.
Standard D – Language and Illustrations.
Standard E – Completeness and consistency.
Provision of editing assistance incorporates:
a) resolution of minor grammatical and technical writing issues
b) the requirement, with the knowledge of the principal supervisor

Documents are corrected with an electronic format in MS Word, Adobe or with proofreading marks.
A declaration form can be issued to the student identifying a piece of work has been proofread (signature, date, professional membership).
