We’ve been editing academic texts for 10+ years. With permission, we’ve used 1000s of academic documents to train the tool specifically to correct academic writing.
2% of editors are accepted at Scribbr. That’s a lower acceptance rate than Harvard (3%). The tool has been trained by these editors to look for common mistakes in academic writing.
Because it’s specialized in academic texts, Scribbr’s proofreading tool offers higher accuracy than other tools. It goes beyond checking grammar, identifying spelling, punctuation, and other common mistakes in academic writing.
All corrections will be done automatically in your document. Keeping your format intact. No copy-pasting is needed!
Upload unlimited documents and get free assessment reports for every document. The report will show you how many and what kind of mistakes you’ve made.

This won’t take longer than 10 minutes

Never again get a lower grade because of pesky grammar mistakes

Our AI Proofreader has been trained on academic texts. It also addresses commonly confused words, and it’s more accurate than Word’s autocorrect feature. Word’s autocorrect feature usually operates on a word level, whereas our AI Proofreader can proofread on the sentence and, to an extent, even the paragraph level. Because it’s more accurate and fixes more than just grammar mistakes, our AI Proofreader identifies and corrects more mistakes overall. Furthermore, because you check your document with our AI Proofreader after you’ve finished writing it, your workflow won’t be interrupted.
Rest assured: Your documents are safe. The document you upload is deleted immediately after it’s been processed by our AI Proofreader, and your processed document will automatically be deleted from our servers after 12 months. If you’d like to delete the stored copy of your document sooner, you can do so manually through your user profile at any time. For more information, please consult our articles on how we ensure the security of your documents.
For now, the AI Proofreader only corrects based on the conventions of US English. We will add other dialects at a later stage.

No; the AI Proofreader currently focuses on grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. If you’re interested in detecting any potential plagiarism in a document, we recommend that you consider our Plagiarism Checker. The AI Proofreader is included for free in that service.
Absolutely! Every change suggested by the AI Proofreader is indicated as a tracked change in Word. You can decide which changes to accept or reject in your document, and, if you’re feeling confident, you can even accept all of the changes with just one click.
The cost is $9.95 per document, no matter the length. You won’t pay more based on the number of words or characters. Our AI Proofreader is ideal for academic papers and dissertations!
