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.

Amazing first experience, highly recommended for dissertation editing

I was unsure if I should use professional editing for my dissertation but I decided to use this website after analyzing carefully lots of options. Here is my opinion after my experience: Advantages: - Very user-friendly and convenient. You can select only the pages you want editing for, compared to other websites I looked at where this option was not available. You can add comments and requests to the editor. - Smallest price I could find on the web - The website has lots of useful resources to help you in writing so the editor could easily refer to them in the suggestions. - It was edited very carefully, until the smallest details, and editor's suggestions were very good. The editor managed to change the language to an academical tone, as I required. - The personal feedback was very interesting and helpful. - You can also find on the website clear instructions on how to work with the comments and changes in the word document after editing, presented in an accessible way. - I had the luck to receive my editing hours before the deadline which allowed me enough time to accept the changes before sending it to my supervisor - Overall very professionalDisadvantages: - None

proofreading service

I used their proofreading service for my writings (American English) in PhD level psychology which were quite technical. The editor clearly knew all the terminologies and the APA style in addition to general academic writing. This particular editor was precise yet always finished ahead of the deadlines. Also, I think the price is reasonable. So five stars.

2019 is my fifth academic term with Scribbr. Scribbr's editor Lora has been fantastic all along! She has been consistently picking up all my mistakes in all my essay papers. Needless to say, her comments transform my essay so well. I have total confident in this editor in three aspects: First, she has been consistently professional in her editing. Second, she has been receptive to what I am trying to express in my work. Third, she has been always returning my work ahead of time so that I have ample time to make adjustments before my deadline. For these reasons, my grades are much improved with the help of Lora. Thank you so much for this wonderful online teacher!

The quickest and best service that is available even on weekends!

There are many available correction and scientific reviewing sites. What is unique about scribbr is the extremely fast response, the highly efficient staff and great level of communication between them.Experience: I needed my 16000 words text to be checked on a Friday and Sunday was the time I wanted it finished. Scribbr system can do 15000 words in one day max (as I remember). What they did is take my text anyways and worked on it in two days. Such option doesn’t exist but they tailored it for me. A professional academic english reader went through my work and came up with great help. She finished even before the deadline early on Sunday. No other service could get the job done so fast and during the weekend. I I will forever recommend Scribbr service for all academics, high school students, university students and postgraduate students. I strongly recommend Scribbr and hope they keep the same level of efficiency and help more writers in need.Regards, Deman MD. PhD. Student

An exceptional and professional company. Great service.

I needed an editor fast. Decided to take the risk and work with Scribbr, based on their good reviews and quick turn around time. This was truly the best feedback and editing experience ever. Jessica her comments were very helpful, also for future writing. I appreciated her personal notes, so when looking at her edits, I understood why sentences were deleted, why choices were made. In other words, in addition to having a cleaned up document, I have learned something as well. It also was helpful to have someone who doesn't know me or my work, comment on the clarity. I truly recommend this service and will use it again.

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.

How long does it take to have my thesis checked?

You can choose between three set time periods. The editor can edit your thesis 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 thesis 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 thesis has been edited.

Check the How it works page for more information.

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. This includes weekends and holidays.

Do you choose for a 72 hour deadline and do you upload your thesis on a Thursday evening? Then you will have your thesis back by Sunday evening!
