In my previous status I have already expressed my highly positive appreciation for editor of my paper. She did the excellent job. The only request which I would like to underline is possibility to chat, at least shortly, directly with editor of my paper. This would help significantly with solving some not clearly understood comments.

It helps

It helps, however sometimes it’s too vague to simple label “please verify” or just highlight the phrases. A clear and simple guideline would be extremely helpful to compare with the charges.

Excellent

The editor Ben did proof editing my paper. Every change was clear and I even got explanation and tips to get better in writing. I got my paper back before the deadline and I received a message. I am very happy with the quality of the proof reading and the service of scribbr. They even work 24/7!

Great for proofreading, did not add much to strengthen my work

The service is trustworthy and helpful for proofreading purposes, but a bit expensive given that I don't think the service goes beyond that. The editor did *not* help to make my dissertation stronger and overall the service is less than what I had hoped for. The editor provided a lot of helpful general comments on grammar, structure and spelling. For some of the comments I didn't understand what they were talking about or how to fix the problem raised. I would give 3 stars, because for example I did not receive feedback to fully address structure & clarity (e.g. What will your editor do?: "Make sure your text tells a clear and logical story", "Comment on the logic behind your argumentation" or "Whether or not each individual chapter supports your document’s main goal") as promised on the website. In addition, it seems the editor did not review my university-specific / supervisor’s guidelines that I uploaded during the order process. Also, I think it would be helpful to have more information on the background of the editor and limited correspondence opportunities with the editor to clarify certain elements in the review. It was unclear how to make contact and time for me was limited. I give 4 stars because there was no argument about my feedback and I got about 1/8 of the total service price refunded. So they stick to their word about customer satisfaction guarantee.
