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.

Rebecca's was efficient

Rebecca's was efficient , respectful, and effectice. Overall, experience was easy access in submitting a document, and quick response .The only problems I find are the high prices without student discount, and more edits received after resubmission of identical paper. In other words, perhaps a free review of second draft with recommended corrections would provide better service. After receiving comments for first draft; received more corrections on the same paper with the recommended edits.

An excellent job

I am super satisfied with the work of my editor. Every comment she leaves to me truly improves the quality of my essay. I have learned a lot from her comments and suggestions as well. This is my second time using Scribbr's service and I definitely will come back to Scribbr next time when I need an editor to proofread or to edit my essays. You have done an excellent job, Scribbr. Thank you so much for helping me to go through challenges every semester since English is not my native language. Keep it up!

Students' critical review about the service

I'm doing an assignment at an institute, however, I do not have an insight of the payment. As for student like me, I recommend that Scribbr organization should do the service free for students as they have not entered the workforce yet.

Doctoral dissertation

Scribbr and the editor assigned to proofread and edit my dissertation are very professional and prompt in the delivery of their service. While Scribbr gives me a superior customer service, the editor is very patient and goes extra mile to address every word in my document. They are wonderful people to work with and care much about their customers.

The process was easy

The process was easy, the cost was fair, and the document was actually a little early. My instructors approved it, and the feedback from the editor was in line with my instructors expectations. Great job.

Research Paper

It was a pleasure to work with Daniel and Gerben. Daniel was my main editor while Gerben made sure that my sources were cited correctly. Daniel's input was very helpful and made my essay more cohesive. Gerben, meanwhile, pointed out that I forgot to cite one of my sources, which saved me from a lot of potential grief. Many thanks to Daniel, Gerben, and the rest of the Scribbr team.

Your Services Are Worth Every Penny

I have used Scribbr many times. I signed up to Trustpilot just to write this review. It simply is the best proofreading service I have ever used. Amazing results, with great recommendations on how to improve your writing in the future. It's the attention to detail not only for the writing, but outside too. The website is beautifully designed and extremely intuitive. Furthermore, their plagiarism checker is simply the best; using the same system most university's use (being Turnitin). You have an extremely loyal customer; your services are worth every penny.

My first English language thesis

This was my first English language thesis (non-native English speaker) and the work done by the editor was outstanding. The insight provided helped me to format the thesis to be more clear to the reader and also to be more technically and grammatically correct. I highly recommend Scribbr for any thesis work.
