Step 1: Comprehensive paper editing

First, the paper editor provides a comprehensive edit for sentence structure, academic style and consistency, using track changes so you can see exactly what has been improved.

You can also choose to receive feedback on the structure and clarity of your paper. The editor follows the the Scribbr Improvement Model and gives you suggestions and tips in the comments.

Step 2: Professional paper proofreading

Next, the editor proofreads the document to fix all those language errors that you might overlook.

Your paper proofreader focuses on correcting your spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as checking for consistency in style choices, such as abbreviations and numbers.

Step 3: Personalized writing advice

As well as proofreading and editing your paper, your editor will send you a personal note and an overview of the errors that appeared most frequently in your text.

The goal is to help you recognize your mistakes and improve your academic writing for the next time you write a paper.

I'm very satisfied with the quality of of the review provided by Scibbr services such as double-check proof reading made at different levels

I'm very satisfied with the quality of the review provided by Scibbr services such as double-check made by two different people based on their specialization. This is the reason why I recommended a friend, to make use of these services. I also appreciated the professionalism and quality of the Scibbr teams on the understanding of the subject, academic rules, and program structure and content.

I love the service

I love the service. It is very individualized to each document I send. I have received amazing feedback along with articles I can read to improve. My sense is that great care and attention is given on every order.I have used normal delivery and expedited service, all have been amazing.I particularly love MS Word “track changes” feature. Other services don’t use this, Sribbr does and it makes everything so much clearer.I will continue using the service and highly recommend any one needing editing services to do the same.

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.

What if I am not happy with the edit?

Editing papers is still the work of people. And we, too, can make mistakes. If you’re not 100% happy with the edit, please let us know so we can find the solution that’s best for you, whether that’s a new edit or a refund.

Read more about our 100% happiness guarantee.

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!
