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

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

In this phase, your paper editor 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.

Satisfied beyond expectations

I am completely satisfied with my results. This is way better than I expected. Lynette truly understood the story I was telling. Her additions and changes made my ideas really "pop" off the page. It made it a doctoral level work.I found the process to review and accept changes to be easy and straight forward. My editing was a breeze and I have already turned in the draft toward finalization of the project.Best money I could have spent!

Dear Scribbr's team!

Dear Scribbr's team! I could say that I am happy and quite satisfied with Macrina's work for that money. As I may consider she is a good English editor. But there were two problems: firstly, on the unknown reason, your site or Macrina did not see the whole text which I have sent. Last for pages was left without proofreading ;( It became the problem to me! Secondly, I think that you have not enough quantity of the editors! Apparently, for this reason, Macrina was not a specialist in my scientific field (namely, sports physiology, training, performance). So she did not understand some particular parts of the text, and she seriously distorted the meaning. I tried to return the desired sense, but, inevitably could to worsen English. The editorial border of my journal will tell me the truth :))). I asked your girl at chat - that I could do!? She has advised me to pay the whole sum of money again. I am not sure that it is good for your company image! Thanks for your help! And good luck to Macrina.

Frequently asked questions

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.

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!
