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.

Frank did an amazing job

Frank did an amazing job, which greatly exceeded my expectations! He caught over five-times the number of errors that I thought may have existed. I accepted nearly all of his proposed changes, and the few that I did not, I seriously considered.He had many ways to better word things, which greatly improved the clarity of my writing. He corrected many subject-verb agreement flaws, which I am weak at, and he separated compound sentences with commas, which I rarely forget. Frank has an incredible eye for detail; for example, he even caught missing spaces within a couple formulas and tables.Frank was familiar with the subject matter—economics—down to the technical level. For example, he knew that economists conventionally write price elasticities of demand as positive numbers, although they are technically negative numbers. As I did not mention this in my text, he knew it would confuse my readers, and he recommended I explain this technicality in more detail. I was very impressed! Frank also gave advice on how to present graphs/equations more clearly, and he caught a few labeling errors between these and the body of the text, which is well beyond what traditional proofreaders do.These are only a few examples of how Frank has improved my writing. I give Frank five out of five stars—he is truly a master in his field. Without question, I will use Scribbr’s services again, and I will recommend them to my friends, colleagues, and students. Thank you!

I had the impression that the editor is…

I had the impression that the editor is not quite familiar with the field of study of my article. Besides that, in my last Scribbr review, almost every sentence was reconstructed in a more direct way, differently from this review. Or my English has really improved from that time to today (since I learned with the corrections from the last review), or the review was this time made in less detail. As I do not know, I will give 5 stars to avoid being unfair. However, I will think twice in ordering Scribbr again.

This is my first time using Scribbr, but it won't be my last My editor was very thorough and I could the compassion that she had just by reading her comments. Now I don't feel unsure about turning in my final copy to the anthologist; thanks to Robyn.

I highly recommend this service!

The editor was patient and thorough in the proofreading and restructuring of my PhD dissertation. He provided detailed feedback so I understood why certain suggested changes were made, and was particularly helpful with reorganizing and trimming my abstract so it fit general formatting and content standards. I now feel more confident about how my dissertation will be evaluated through my institution's external review process.

Frequently asked questions

What type of documents does Scribbr 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%.
