Happy with the revised version :)

An excellent job was done on proofreading my research paper. The feedback that I received on the document were drastically useful and detailed, which with no doubt will help me understand my common mistakes and avoid making similar errors in future work. I am fully satisfied about the work done, and Scribbr is an absolute useful tool to use to ensure better quality of any academic work. Overall, my experience was insightfully fabulous, and I would definitely recommend others to use Scribbr for any academic services (e.g. proofreading, clarity, structure, reference and plagiarism check). All the best John

Highly recommended!

Meticulous job, plus the check-up was ready ahead of time! I was expecting to just see revisions but there was a load of explanations and justifications for the changes as well, so as a bonus I also learned a lot.

I found this service to be invaluable to me. I find proof reading my own work nearly impossible and this service gave me peace of mind. The suggestions were inspirational and the service was prompt and thorough. Wish I had found this service earlier in my course.

Best citation generator ever!

I love this resource! Unlike EasyBib, which is almost unusable because of how many adds there are and how laggy it is, the site is fast, easy to navigate, and so aesthetically-pleasing! Thank you Scribbr!

Amazing revision and feedback!

A great revision and they’re also really good at responding to whatever you put as your concerns or outlines you’re writing by. I tend to use passive voice a lot and put that and the outline with my paper and the feedback I go was very detailed on how I can avoid passive voice and ways to improve my paper. I will definitely use this service again!
