Only 2 out of every 100 editor applicants we receive pass the challenging Scribbr Academy, meaning only the best editors will work on your paper.
All our English editors are native speakers, and they all have experience editing texts written by students whose first language isn’t English.
We handpick your editor based on your field of study and turnaround time. We’ll even expand your editing team with citation and formatting experts if needed.
I have a doctorate in biology and studied a range of life science subjects. I specialize in editing academic texts.
I researched at Harvard, taught English with a Fulbright in Peru, and earned a master's from Johns Hopkins.
I am an academic editor and book reviewer. I am familiar with many style guides and have edited over 6 million words.
I have a bachelor's in electrical engineering and a master's in psychology and am pursuing a PhD in neuroscience.
I am an ESL teacher and academic editor with a research background in the humanities, arts, and culture.
Once again, Scribbr helped me brilliantly by proofreading my master’s thesis! As a non-native writer, I was very satisfied with the improvements the editor made regarding sentence structure and general language ;) There were also helpful comments to think about when I write a new thesis :)
