We’ll help you make sure that your argument is clear and understandable with our Clarity Check.

An excellent work - beyond expectations

Our editor did an excellent work. It was great to get feedback on the manuscript, understand what were the most common mistakes and have comment tabs throughout the document. Any ambiguous sentence or correction was highlighted to ensure that the changes preserved the meaning of the sentence. It was beyond my expectations.

My editor exceeded my expectations

My editor exceeded my expectations and not only fixed my grammar but also suggested word choice options which made the work more professional. She then called me personally to see if I had any questions. Well worth the price.

The editor who helped with my paper provided a lot of helpful comments. The comments were structured in away that I understood what they were talking about and what I needed to do in order to make the argument I was making in my paper stronger.

Excellent job

The editing was excellent and precise. The paraphrasing of some parts was properly done without losing the meaning of edited parts. It was a job worth paying for. I am putting down my thoughts to write a book and will surely need your services. Thank you once more.

Highly recommended

Hello everybody I experienced the proofreading and plagiarism check of scribbr team for four times and I found that the team members are very supportive and kind, the language expert are highly skilled. In my Ph.D. dissertation I highly appreciate the efforts of the team and Jordan and Shane to sort out the issue with my supervisor. I would never think again about my publications because I have scribbr. Therefore, I highly recommend my colleagues and friends to make use of scribbr language services. Regards

100% satisfied

Kindness, professionalism, and celerity: in my opinion, these three words define the Scribbr proofreading service. The text has been sent back to me within the established time, the reviewers are very prepared and meticulous with the corrections without being rude, on the contrary, adding many suggestions to improve it. I highly recommend it!

THE BEST WEBSITE EVER!!!

It has to be one of the best academic websites I have ever discovered. If you need to cite and maintain different reference lists for a lot of subjects, Scribbr is here to save your day. I struggled with many useless free citation generators and then I came across scribbr and my life changed forever.
