Step 1: Comprehensive paper editing

First, the paper editor provides a comprehensive edit for sentence structure, academic style and consistency, using track changes and comments.

This includes feedback on structure and/or clarity if you select these additional services. The editor will provide you with questions, suggestions, comments and tips using the Scribbr Improvement Model.

Step 2: Professional paper proofreading

Next, the editor proofreads the document for consistency and language errors.

In this phase, your paper proofreader focuses on correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation and verb tense errors and checks for consistency in style choices, such as abbreviations and numbers.

Step 3: Personalized improvement letter

In addition to proofreading and editing, you will receive a personalized feedback letter to help you recognize your most frequent mistakes.

This helps you improve your writing for the next time you write a paper.

Precise and educational editing

Editor Patrick did a really good job editing my MA Thesis. Even though he indicated that the text was already quite good, he managed to significantly improve it. Most importantly, I also learned about my weaknesses in academic writing.

Richard 20 June 2019

Unbelievably detailed, meticulous and fast

At first, I was concerned about how meticulous the corrector would check my paper (if she would only check the spelling or the grammar), but when I got my document back, I saw that she had really gone into detail with my text. She changed whole sentences or paragraphs when she thought it made my paper more academic or easier to read. Even though she had 1 week to correct the document, I got it back a couple days later. In general, I'm very happy with the depth she corrected my text and the simplicity the correcting system has.

Frequently asked questions

What type of documents does Scribbr check?

Scribbr is specialized in editing study related documents. We check:

Calculate the costs

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.

Read more about the Clarity Check

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.

How long does it take to have my document checked?

You can choose between three set time periods. The editor can edit your paper 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 paper 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 paper has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

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, all year round.

If you choose a 72 hour deadline and upload your thesis on a Thursday evening, you’ll have your thesis back by Sunday evening!

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept the following payment methods:

Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro and Diners Club)
Transaction fee of 2% – 3,9%.

PayPal
Transaction fee of 3,5%.
