Thesis Formatting

I can format your thesis to your university’s standards and return it to you as an editable Word document.

What I do:

  • Compile and clean up the text, stripping extra tabs, returns, spaces, and manual formatting
  • Create a consistent set of styles for headings, captions, quotes, references, page numbers, footnotes, and different body text paragraphs
  • Add correctly-formatted page numbering, creating section breaks and chapters as needed
  • Create auto-numbered captions for figures and tables
  • Insert table of contents and lists of figures and tables, all automatically page-numbered
  • Adjust font, size, line space, indents, and margins to meet university requirements
  • Correct minor typographic mistakes: dashes, quotes, foreign characters

What I DON’T do:

  • Editing
  • Proofreading
  • Referencing


Formatting costs $NZ50 + $1/page. Turnover is usually 48 hours from when all files are supplied. If you have any queries about what’s involved, feel free to contact me
in advance.
