Flawless in-text citations

In-text citations can be tricky, and it’s easy to overlook mistakes. Is it (Brown et al 2020) or (Brown et al., 2020)? Don’t worry—our citation experts will make sure:

  • Punctuation is perfect
  • “Et al.” is used correctly
  • All necessary information is included

We’ll also cross-check your in-text citations against your reference list and highlight any missing references.

Impeccable references

Books, webpages, articles, videos: each type of source has a different reference format. Getting the details right is important, so your citation expert will review every reference to ensure:

  • The correct information is included
  • Style guide requirements are met
  • Capitalization and punctuation is spot on

We’ll also improve the overall layout of the reference page, including indentation and line spacing.

Happy with results on journal paper

We asked proofreading for our journal paper. As non-native speakers, we expected some grammar and typing issues, but our editor did so much more, providing comments on style and improving sentence structure throughout the paper! I happily would recommend this service to anyone wishing for the "fresh pair of eyes" look at the paper, and will use this service again in future.

Five Stars

The best citation site out there so far. No on-screen ads to slow down my computer when citing multiple sources in different tabs, no watching minutes-long ads to maintain free access. Just an easy-to-use interface.

Amazing citation website!

This site is wonderful! It lets me alphabetize my citations and allows me to cite all kinds of sources, from websites to books and more, even videos and news articles. I only need to cite websites and books so far, but I'm glad to know that this site offers more citation options It even has different citation formats, so if I ever need APA instead of MLA, I know where to turn I know to turn to Scribbr! :)
