Scribbr provided a professional, instant, and thorough editing service

Scribbr provided a professional, instant, and thorough editing service within this short period (24 hr)! As a non-native speaker of English, all the comments and editing were well explained several with the tutorial articles about some important rules and details of academic writing. I will definitely continue to use Scribbr in the future.

Excellent service and nice employees

Excellent service and nice employees. It is of course expensive, but I think you could see it as investment in your future. Maybe implementing a student discount would be an advantage in the future.

Masterthesis Korrektur

I am very happy with the corrections. Veronica gave very helpful tips and ideas on how to reword the sentences and she picked on mistakes that I had missed. The inputs were all in line with the rules for writing academic texts. As I haven't written an academic piece for a while, this was extremely helpful.

Just what I was looking for...

Glad that such a tool exists. Tracking references and mentioning them correctly in the required format is very challenging for someone new. Scribber made it extremely easy and there are no more hassles. I can now concentrate on my research. Thank you so much.

Worth it!

Everything is done as it is explained on their website. They even finished before the deadline and the correction was absolutely satisfying! Saved me a lot of time and workload. They even called me to ask if I am satisfied with the result. Very good customer service.

Proofreading & Editing, Structure Check and Clarity Check

When you select our professional proofreading and editing service, an editor will fix the language and consistency errors in your thesis, dissertation, paper, or other academic text. You’ll receive a personalized improvement letter designed to help you recognize and correct your most frequent mistakes.

Additionally, you can choose the Structure Check to receive feedback on the structure and organization of your document or the Clarity Check for advice on how to tell a clearer and more compelling story.


Paper Formatting and Citation Editing

If you choose our Paper Formatting service, we will generate a table of contents and a list of tables and figures. We’ll also add page numbers for you. This service costs an additional $0.30 per page per item.

You can also have your citations checked for consistency. The Citation Editing Service costs $2.75 per source.


Per-word rate

The cost is calculated based on the number of words you want checked and the per-word rate. The per-word rate depends on the deadline you choose. Additionally, there is a setup fee of $25.

What types of editing does Scribbr offer?

Every Scribbr order comes with our award-winning Proofreading & Editing service, which combines two important stages of the revision process.

For a more comprehensive edit, you can add a Structure Check or Clarity Check to your order. With these building blocks, you can customize the kind of feedback you receive.

You might be familiar with a different set of editing terms. To help you understand what you can expect at Scribbr, we created this table:

Types of editing Available at Scribbr?
Correction of superficial mistakes, such as typos, misspellings, punctuation errors and consistency errors.
This is the “proofreading” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with editing.
Copy editing
Focus on grammar, syntax, style, tone and the conventions of the field. The editor also considers the internal logic of the text and flags any obvious contradictions.
This is the “editing” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with proofreading.
Line editing
Focus on language, style, concision and choices. The editor helps you strengthen your story, polish your sentences and ensure that your use of language drives home your ideas.
Select the Structure Check and Clarity Check to receive a comprehensive edit equivalent to a line edit.
Developmental editing (i.e. content editing, substantive editing)
This is the first step of the editing process and applies to very early drafts. The editor helps you structure your ideas, decide what story to tell and find direction for your writing.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.
