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.

Really good! I recommend!

I sent them my article once and was very happy with thorough editing they have carried out. So the service was SUPER FAST, of a good quality and included everything I needed and everything I asked from them in letter. Price is also adequate. Now I know a good place where I can send my article for edition- Scribbr. I totally recommend it.

Kind and careful proofreading

The review was very thorough, and the feedback report that pointed out the most common mistakes was very helpful. The deadline for the review was also well met. The website was sophisticated and user-friendly, and the procedures were clearly explained. I would use their services again.

This website is a life saver

whenever I procrastinate on an assignment, I write down all my links and hand them in without APA. This website is a lifesaver. it not only gathers all the information by a quick search, but formats everything (including the things it couldn't find!). From just clicking a few buttons, i finished all my references in a matter of minutes. disappointed that i didnt find it before.

Dissertation Editing

My experience with the entire Scribbr team was fantastic. My dissertation was 80,000 words and I needed the draft turned around quickly. Scribbr met the deadline and the edits made the project much stronger. Their customer service is impeccable and each member of their team will go to great lengths to make sure that you are happy. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you, Scribbr!

I'm really happy&satisfied with the proofreadings. It would be much more brilliant if the editor could change the unsuitable/redundant word to a suggested one rather than just mark it to revise.
