Montezuma Publishing Editing Standards

Montezuma Publishing offers editing services to SDSU theses and dissertations only.

Your editor will check for the following:

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Clarity
  • Effective use of language
  • Dissertations will be edited to follow APA format


The time it takes to complete the editing of your file will be determined on a case by case basis. Variables such as document length, the amount of edits required, response rate, and your date of submission will affect this timeline. If the editing process takes longer than 3 weeks (21 days) OR if your defense is after the Submission Deadline, it may impact your ability to graduate during the current semester.

Thesis orders are accepted between the hours of 8:00am - 3:45pm, Monday through Friday.

*Prices are subject to change without notice.
