Feedback for Scibbr and Joanne - my editor

I have been using Scribbr since the beginning of my first semester in the Master's program. As an non-native English speaker, my editor - Joanne (who I have been working with so far), does an outstanding job in delivering my order on time. Her editing skill helps me to polish my work to meet my professor's expectation. My scores increase from 7.5 to 9.5 (thought paper is 10 points max), and I am one of the first students in the class to get 9.5. Thank you Joanne for your amazing work!

Very happy with Gabrielle's work and expert advice and guidance. Feared there could be grammatical cross-overs with me writing in British English and Scribbr predominately working in US English, but not a problem.

Fantastic Lora!

Another fantastic work from Lora. Lora are sharp to pick up many mistakes from my paper. Her suggestions are extremely helpful in strengthening the flow and the expressions of my concepts. Finally, she always return the paper to m ahead of the designated deadline so that I manage to have more time to revise my final draft. She led me to personally think that all Scribbr teachers are like Lora always putting their 120% effort into my papers. Once again, thank you so much.

I really think that Laszlo did a great job, it was a way of respectful communication that I very much liked - and being in such need of language expertise to avoid being embarrassed in my submitting of the manuscript. The review also opened my eyes for other errors - like disposition mistakes which with this help could be much ameliorated.I had one problem though, not knowing exactly to what extent L is used to medical scientific writing - it was this change in tempus from imperfektum to (what we call) perfect/participe. An example: We always use the terms " we analyzed, we collected, this was measured", etc, whereas L suggested a change to "we have analyzed, this has been measured" etc - I cannot understand this fully and do not agree. Other than this - it was very good and I will definitely want to return to you next time!

Frequently asked questions

See all
What is the Clarity Check?

The Clarity Check is an additional service that you can purchase when you have your thesis proofread and edited by Scribbr.

If you select the Clarity Check, then your editor will provide you with useful feedback to help you improve your reasoning and ensure that what you’ve written is comprehensive and clear.

The editor will provide this feedback using two checklists and in-text comments. Our editors never implement this feedback directly, as it often concerns your ideas and argumentation.

Note that our editors can only consider the internal logic and clarity of your text. They are not subject matter experts and can therefore not check your facts or tell you the content is correct.

What type of documents does Scribbr check?

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!
