Academic Style Checking – APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian

Academic style checking of references and citations is optional at no additional charge. Formatting and style checking your overall document is an additional $1.50 per page (0.6¢ per word) with a minimum charge of $15.00. Overall academic style checking automatically adds 15 minutes per page to the turnaround time and increases the minimum turnaround to 8 hours. A further additional charge or further additional turnaround time may be required in some cases.

Note that if you select academic style checking of your overall document, the additional charge cannot be paid using credit.

Multiple Documents
  • Standard Price Option

    • One Order – Multiple documents in one order usually lowers the price and lengthens the turnaround.

    • Separate Orders – Multiple documents in separate orders usually raises the price and shortens the turnaround.

  • Pre-order/Volume Discount Option

    • No Page Limit – There is no minimum or maximum limit to the number of words or pages submitted per day or per order using credit.

    • Five-Order Credit Limit Per 24 Hours – Credit will be applied to a maximum of five orders in a 24-hour period. The standard price will be charged for additional orders within a 24-hour period.

    • Example: If you submit five 200-page orders in one day, your credit will be applied to these orders automatically (assuming that you have enough credit). But if you submit 1000 one-page orders in one day, your credit will be applied only to the first five orders.

    • Note: If you or your organization wants to submit more than five orders in a 24-hour period using credit, please contact Customer Service.

Volume Discount/Pre-order Options

Example: For $318.75, you can pre-order up to 50 pages of proofreading or up to 46 pages of light editing. You can apply this credit as desired. For example, half of this credit could be applied to a 25-page order for proofreading. You would then have half of your credit remaining, that is, up to 25 pages of proofreading or up to 23 pages of light editing.
