The Best

I had editing services twice from Scribbr with same editor, Michelle. It was simply the best. I was satisfied by editing, since the editor corrected grammatical correction, style, pointing out repetitions, suggesting alternatives, adding some sentences and even advices.

Great value for the service

I didn't expect it in the beginning but the proof reading sevice from Scribbr turned out to be very satisfactory. I probably can't say for all the editor But Kristin from the Health topic certainly pay attention in all the details and give a comprehensive feedback on my thesis draft. I definitely will come again for her help next time I need a proofreading service.

I am not gonna write a long comment because people like Andrew would pick out all the errors and nonsense in my sentences that I can't possibly know. Haha. He is awesome and I really appreciate his help. This the second time that I use Scribbr's help. They are all great. Highly recommended.

María Jose provided me with excellent constructive feedback regarding language usage, punctuation, and essay structure. Her corrections were of great quality. Additionally, she gave me tips on how to use more academic language in my paper. This is something that no program of study, or tutor has ever helped me with. As I was writing in my second language, which I did not grow up learning in grade school, this was something I was lacking. Not only am I very pleased with the services provided, but I also will use the feedback she gave in further assignments throughout the course of my academic career. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends and colleagues. Thank-you María Jose!!!!!

How long does it take to have my thesis checked?

You can choose between three set time periods. The editor can edit your thesis within 24 hours, 72 hours or 1 week. The deadline is set as soon as you have paid.

Do you need to hand in your thesis in four days? Please choose either the 72 hours or 24 hours deadline. All the editing periods include weekends and holidays.

You will receive a notification via text message and email as soon as your thesis has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

Can I upload my thesis in sections?

Yes, you can upload your thesis in sections.

We try our best to ensure that the same editor checks all the different sections of your thesis. When you upload a new file, our system recognizes you as a returning customer, and we immediately contact the editor who helped you before.

However, we cannot guarantee that the same editor will be available. Your chances are higher if

  1. You send us your text as soon as possible and
  2. You can be flexible about the deadline.

Please note that the shorter your deadline is, the bigger the risk that your previous editor is not available.

If your previous editor isn’t available, then we will inform you immediately and look for another qualified editor. Fear not! Every Scribbr editor follows the Scribbr Improvement Model and will deliver high-quality work.

However, every editor has a slightly different editing style, so you may notice small inconsistencies in editing choices. As with every proofreading order, be sure to carefully review your editor’s changes and suggestions as you finalize your text to ensure that everything is as you want it.
Can I have my thesis edited during weekends and holidays?

Yes, our editors also work during the weekends and holidays.

Because we have many editors available, we can check your thesis 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. This includes weekends and holidays.

Do you choose for a 72 hour deadline and do you upload your thesis on a Thursday evening? Then you will have your thesis back by Sunday evening!
