Absolutely! Securing our clients’ private information is one of our top priorities. Accordingly, we use 256-bit SSL protection.
A polished paper stands out from other documents. A polished paper is free of lexical, grammatical, and stylistic errors. A polished paper is concise, direct, and poignant. A polished paper is a conduit to a better future. In short, a polished paper sets you apart from your peers.
We accept .doc, .docx, .pdf, .odt, .rtf, .ppt, and .pptx documents.
No we do not. While charging more for ELL documents is popular within the editing industry, Polished Paper rejects this practice. We feel that it is important to not only present you with an excellent document, but also to help you understand why a mistake may have been made.
Of course! Unlike other companies that attempt to charge clients for returning documents early, if it is done, Polished Paper will return it immediately. However, we prioritize documents with shorter turnaround times to ensure we return documents to all of our clients on time. Consequently, we cannot guarantee early delivery on documents.
We will accommodate your needs. The most popular styles—Business, APA, MLA, Chicago, Harvard, and CSE— are available for selection in our order menu. In addition, we also edit less common styles. We simply ask that you provide us with a link to the style guide and we will do the rest. For our corporate clientele, we offer services that conform to the guidelines you specify. Once again, all that we require is guidance on your preferences.
Polished Paper could hardly return you a polished paper if the references were not formatted correctly. Your references will be edited in the format you request, and to the standard that you expect.
Carefully. After a thorough review of qualifications, and before being entrusted with any client documents, all prospective editors are required to complete Polished Paper’s comprehensive editing examination. Only those editors who score excellent or above are offered the opportunity to edit for our clients. Next, follows a period of supervised editing, during which one of our senior editors will review all work for accuracy and attention to detail. Only after this phase are our editors allowed to “solo” edit a document.
