The best editing site everRead review on TrustPilot
The feedback I got on my writing (I submitted a personal statement for admissions to grad schools) was personalized, detailed, and tailored exactly to what I asked for when I submitted it. I got the opportunity to ask questions about specific parts, ask the editor to look at theme, tone, organization, and voice— all of which is something I struggle to do well with. Not only were ALL of my questions and concerns were addressed, but the way they were addressed was so.... human? Yeah, human. It was so clear that there was a human reading my paper that was consuming it as a human, not as a robot or a computer. She made sure it was alive, and that it was me. That’s exactly what I asked for. I got another edit within the same week, and I got the same wonderful editor, and since then, she welcomed me to email her questions (I have!!) and she responded SO quickly and thoroughly even though she wasn’t “on the clock” anymore. Can’t recommend enough.Read review on TrustPilot
I have used this service three times now and can recommend to anyone. Will be using Scibbr to proof my PhD.Read review on TrustPilot
I used the plagiarism checker service to inspect one of my final projects for my PG course. I can say that it definitely works and provides a very comprehensive similarity report, which includes all the parts (including the sources) that match another piece of already published work (e.g., books, scientific journals, academic websites...etc.). The database is definitely huge. The similarity report can also be downloaded, which is a big plus! However, I have two main criticisms. The first one is that compared to the report generated by the plagiarism checker of my institution (which I believe is also powered by Turnitin), it missed out on some bits of texts. Although these were referenced properly, this leads me to believe that it may actually miss out on some potentially plagiarised texts. My second criticism is that the report often highlights random bits of text. Although this can be partially solved by excluding small matches, it still bumps up your similarity score, making you believe that you have plagiarised even if you have not! The price is rather steep too, in my opinion. I think you could try to implement more incremental pricing. For example, the price is the same whether you use 7,500 or 50,000 words. However, I have personally heard great things about the proofreading and editing services so I may try them out in the future. Thanks for reading my feedback! EDIT: Thank you for the tips. I appreciate the full refund and the top notch customer service.Read review on TrustPilot

Great job. Thank youRead review on TrustPilot
It seems that the editor paid utmost attention while reviewing my manuscript. And it boosted up my confidence to submit my paper in an indexed journal. If i had an opportunity, I would give my editor 10 out of 10.Read review on TrustPilot
Thank you to Scribbr editors, they are always helpful and great response.Read review on TrustPilot
The editor's comments were detailed and constructive. I sincerely thank the editor for putting this much effort on my journal article!Read review on TrustPilot
The proofreading was handed over before deadline. The commentaries were easy and precise, the correction included also some feed back on the general form, which was a welcomed extra. Also the guidelines tips on English grammar were useful. Overall good experience. Thanks.Read review on TrustPilot
The APA Referencing Generator was very helpful. I had used over 8 sources, yet they sorted them in alphabetical order for me. My only concern is that, when I click copy, it doesn't copy over correctly. Other than that, 5 stars!Read review on TrustPilot
