What kind of orders do I get in the Academy?

All incoming editors complete the first two Academy orders:

  • Core Competencies Check (3,000 words). The aim of the first Academy order is to introduce you to Scribbr’s style of editing and make sure you have the baseline knowledge needed to edit for Scribbr.
  • Structure Check & Clarity Check Training (900 words). With the second Academy order, you’ll learn how to perform the Structure Check and Clarity Check.

After each mandatory Academy order, you’ll receive tailored feedback from an experienced senior editor.

Other Academy orders are assigned on an as-needed basis if extra training is necessary in a particular area. We offer follow-up training in the following areas:

  • Grammar and editing
  • Punctuation
  • Scribbr and academic style
  • Editing for students
  • Technical editing

New editors who would like to receive additional feedback in one of these areas are also welcome to request these optional orders.
