The best citation tool

The best citation tool! Scribbr really helped me for many of my major school projects. I didn't have to double-check them or wait through dozens of adds to get them either.

Another great job by a great editor

Actually, I didn't want to write another review as I felt that readers may think that it may be fake since I have written a few reviews. But then, this will do injustice to Scribbr because the fact is that they have done another great job for me. Although my Academic English has improved, they are still able to identify and in the process, teach me on getting better like a tutor. They not only correct but also explain why and how it should be. Thank you Scribbr.

5 Stars in terms of quality and services.

I had 2 assignments proofread and edited by Scribbr, one last week and another the week before. Both were done by Meredith and I am pleasantly pleased with what she has done. I hope that she continues to proofread and edit my works. I have actually learned a lot from Scribbr as they explained to me what and why they have done, and this in a way is also tutoring me. I'm actually glad that they noted the improvements I made since the first assignment they proofread. I was also lucky to have some of my assignments "quality checked" (hope to have more of this). Although I know that there are other proofreading and editing services that may be good, as it is, I'm not going to rock the boat to "try-out". All my pieces will only be corrected by Scribbr. Thanks Team.

Incredible platform experience

I've used Scribbr for three years now, and it's been an absolute life saver. I had no idea how to cite before, and I can confidently say that Scribbr has managed to teach me what I need to cite on my own, even though I still use the platform, because of it's simplicity. It somehow manages to make one of the most complicated aspects of writing easy. Amazing platform and great level of organization for it's consumers.
