  • Hiring outside help in the form of an expert editor or statistical consultant can save you much time, money, and sanity!
  • Most universities will require a certain style (for example, APA) and that your manuscript follows a detailed format (including very specific margins, table of contents, headings, etc.); getting your manuscript in the correct form and style can be a very technical (and hair-pulling) task.
  • When seeking outside help, be aware of companies/individuals who lack integrity and don't have the experience you need.
  • An editor, coach, or consultant will not write your dissertation/doctoral project for you (and if they offer to do so - RUN!); you must OWN your work as you will be orally defending it prior to being granted your degree.
  • Think of outside help like a team assisting you on the arduous doctoral journey.
  •  You don't have to do this alone!
