Thesis Editing

Hi All,

I need someone to edit a thesis written in American English and convert it to a non-fiction book. It is a 40,000 word thesis, including bibliography, which needs to be edited using chicago style. To convert the thesis to a non-fiction, one needs to take care of at least the following:

1. Remove all academic scaffolding - This means that there should be no separate topics from introductions and conclusions, it should all be part of the main text. Next, there should be no reference to what the thesis sets out to do, but should directly get to doing it, without stating. This means there should not be phrases like 'Next, this thesis will utilize immanent critique when examining, from a position inside the structure, how ideology and reality are disconnected.' Such phrases need to be changed for better flow of the book.

2. Some reorganisation of materials/renamin of chapters to make it more coherent

3. All references moved to the end of the book, organised either according to chapters or according to topics.

4. Remove jargons and make the language simple to read for non-specialists readers

Whoever is shortlisted will need to provide a sample edit.
