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.

Timely Service

Personally, the editing & proofreading service I received for my research project was extremely good. I haven't received my grades as yet but I hope my professor thinks the same🙏🏾. I opted for the 24 hours service but I was so afraid that I wasn't going to receive a timely feedback. I was amazed and pleased when I got the feedback within a few hours!!!! Yes!!!! A few hours!!! Overall, timely service and excellent quality of service. I would definitely be using again in the near future!

Excellent service

I had two documents edited by two different editors and I am very satisfied with the service I have received. Both editors did a thorough work in checking not only mechanical issues, but also clarity.

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would!

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would! From the moment that I contacted Scribbr with questions, I knew that I was in safe hands and I felt comfortable and confident that they would do a good job and they did. Very clear comments were provided, consistent edits and helpful suggestions given. I know that this is an extra expense, however, I believe that it is worth it.

Mixed opinions

I thought my paper improved considerably after the review. Unfortunately, my supervisor did not think the same, and to him, there were still many parts that weren't clear at all. Sorry... ********** edited: Scribbr support team was very quick and helpful and immediately offered me compensation. I'd be happy to use their services again and give another try, this time opting for an additional clarity check.

Frequently asked questions

What if I am not happy with the edit?

What type of documents does Scribbr check?

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

Calculate the costs

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!

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 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

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.

What is our Proofreading & Editing service?

Our Proofreading & Editing service entails checking for typographical and linguistic errors, appropriate word choice, academic style and consistency. Additionally, your editor will help you become a better writer by providing you with a personalized improvement letter designed to help you recognize and correct your most common mistakes.

Language use will be improved

Your editor will correct:

  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Academic style
  • Sentence structure
  • Punctuation
  • Word choice
  • Incorrect and unclear words or sentences

Personal feedback with tips and suggestions

Your editor will give you feedback about:

Your editor will proofread your document using Word’s Track Changes. When you receive your text back, you can simply accept all changes.
