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.

Couldn't be happier with the service…

Couldn't be happier with the service provided by Scribbr and my editor Linda. Her help is improving my writing and undoubtedly helping me get those extra marks. Will continue to use throughout my degree. Definitely worth the money. My only suggestion for improvement would be some sort of loyalty scheme for returning customers.

Worth Every Penny! THANK-YOU DARREN!

This service is absolutely amazing, I went from receiving 80s to 90s! I was very skeptical about spending the money on this service, but it is super reliable and professional. I will always use this service for now on for all of my assignments. The feedback is detailed and the editors really go out of their way to provide the best work. The service is also very fast, I almost always receive my work back before the deadline. I paid for a 3 day service, and got one back in a day and a half. Many thanks to Scribbr and the team! But BIG thanks to Darren, he is AWESOME! If you get him as your editor, consider yourself lucky! :) Thanks again Scribbr and Darren!!!!

ITS ACTUALLY AMAZING

alright im actually a fangirl of this site for the following reasons :- + The DOI or title only function for generating citations ( for journals) is PERFECTION + it can generate citations for a wiiiide variety of sources + it has a dark mode isn't that amazing?! +it does the apa formatting for you and at the end all you gotta do is to select them all and paste in your reference list - the citation generator for book is honestly pretty bad, almost all books I try to generate citations for never happen sadly but i trust this site to be good enough to improve all these in the future so it is just constructive criticism
