Both the in-text corrections and the comments were very helpful! It's nice to have consistency in a document (e.g., common use of acronyms, punctuation, and pointing out where we hadn't defined terms), especially after it's been through multiple rounds of edits from co-authors. This copy-edit brought everything back to a consistent baseline. I would recommend this service, and will likely use it again in future

I wrote my thesis in Dutch, which was then corrected by an Scribbr-editor. Feedback and explanations were very clear and understanding. The spellings- and grammatical control were amazing.

All around I'm satisfied. They are quick and professional. One thing only, sometimes when words are profession specific the who looked att my text changed it into something unrelated. So, be careful.

Final Doctoral Paper

An author recommended Scribbr to me and I was very happy with their work! Service had a quick turnaround and was thorough. I appreciate all the comments, edits, and justification for the changes. I could tell Doug (the editor) spent significant time on my work and understood my topic. Doug was professional and personable. This was a high-stakes assignment for me and Scribbr helped reduce my stress. Highly recommend and would use this service again!

My article had a great improvement and the editor help me to understand some of my regular mistakes. The article goes directly to a magazine and now I am more confident about the details I was no seeing. Very detailed and accurate. The article is in Spanish and Virgina was great in suggestions.

Very useful edits that improved my paper

I recommend it in terms of structure, language and content analysis. I got very useful suggestions, corrections and comments. The only drawback was that my paper needed to follow specific requirements towards paper format, which I had provided, but the review didn't consider them. As long as you follow the format requirements yourself and take account of other suggestions, this is a fantastic service! You can precalculate how much a review would cost for you without any registration or payments, which is also very useful.
