Awesome but ...

I wish you can add Human Resources section and the option to select different services for the same document in different sections. For example thesis that is 100 pages I would have the option to only proofread pages 1-30, check clarity for pages 31-60 and structure check for pages 61-100.

Excellent Professional Editing Service

I've worked with Michelle on several different manuscripts by now and she's been amazing. Her detailed edits are meticulous, and she identifies opportunities for major edits that could improve the article, but still leaves room for me to determine how to proceed with those more substantial edits. The Scribbr team has always been very responsive. I have no problem communicating with the team and they are ready to hear your thoughts and concerns and adjust their service accordingly.

the free apa citation tool is awesome

the free apa citation tool is awesome, way better than easybib, plus it's free. The DOI link option is also cool. It's basically like easybib, but faster/doesn't throw errors (in my experience) and free, unlike easybib which charges for APA citations. (only MLA citations are free on easybib)

Amazing and Reliable!

Wow, I didn't expect such a wonderful, thorough service. Thank you, John. You have done a fantastic job editing my thesis. I had doubts before signing up for the service due to an unsatisfied experience with another platform, but everything turned out to be a wonderful surprise and exceeding my expectation. John helped me re-write almost every sentence, which must take a lot of time. He checked my citations and facts and corrected many mistakes that I neglected. As an international student pursuing my final degree, this thesis marks my final step of higher education, and it is perfect! I will recommend this to everyone.

Helpful

Each editor at the Scribbr is always helpful. However, I highly recommend the writers to carefully reread the edited paper because sometimes our own intent and after editing are different. Beside that, I have been learning many grammatical and/or academic wiring things from them a lot! So Thank you!!
