Whether to secure approval or funding for an undergraduate, graduate or professional research endeavor, your research proposal is key to the success of your efforts. You need a team of smart, academic editors who can ensure every detail in your research proposal excels and achieves the vision you have for it.
I used DLA editors to edit a manuscript for grammar and APA. They did an excellent job conforming it to APA and truly enhanced the flow of the paper. The manuscript was submitted on a Saturday night and returned, as promised, on the following Tuesday. I highly recommend this company!

Whether you’re just looking for a free instant quote or are ready to purchase our services, start with Get Started, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:
Under Select Your Category, choose Research Proposals.
Next, select your project type (Research Proposal), service (e.g., Research Proposal Editing & Feedback) and style guide (e.g., APA), if any (by default, we use Merriam-Webster Unabridged Style Guide).
Now upload your file to be edited, or enter your page or word count. Our quotes for fee and turnaround time are calculated based on word count.
To get the most accurate quote, or to purchase a service, upload your file to be edited. We accept MS Word files only. Your word count will be automatically calculated and displayed next to your uploaded file.
Alternatively, enter your word count or page count to get a quote.
The page count option is good for getting a ballpark quote. It uses an estimated number of words per page (250), and so is less accurate than uploading your file or entering your word count.
To finalize your quote, select from Normal Delivery, Express Delivery and Rush Delivery.
Please note that the displayed turnaround times are calculated based on word count. To get the most accurate quote, make sure to upload your file to be edited.
Confirm your quote. To order the service, ensure you have uploaded at least one file to be edited, add any comments, enter a project nickname and click Add to Cart.
