So worth the money

So worth the money! Joan was the editor for my dissertation and she did an amazing job! Edits were personalized and easy to understand, and she caught so many little things that I never would have found. She also gave feedback that gave me guidance on different options I could choose for formatting. I would highly recommend Sribbr for your editing needs.

spectacular assistance!

I had a very next experience while getting 2 of my papers revised. All the comments and revisions very clear and extremely helpful. The citation help was also spectacular and it took even less of the time that it originally had said. I'm very satisfied and thankful for all the assistance and will definitely use this service more in the future. Thank you Tracey!

Excellent service

Writing a bachelor’s thesis in English was definetly a challenge, given the importance of perfect grammar and precise wording in such a significant document. Scribbr’s service not only met but exceeded my expectations, ensuring my thesis was polished and professionally presented. I am satisfied with the quality of work, and I wholeheartedly recommend Scribbr to anyone in need of editing services. They are worth every penny I would like to extend my gratitude to Scribbr, and particularly to my editor, Mollie, for their exceptional work.

Beyond words pleased

Outstanding PhD dissertation assist! I had already sent it through two edits with others, and it did not feel ready for the Chair to review. I am glad I paid for one more edit. Mitchel took my Results chapter and revealed to me just how far off I was from concise and scholarly writing. I am highly impressed and cannot recommend this service more. This edit alone may have saved me another semester's worth of tuition.

Horizon EU proofreading

We used a 3-days service proofreading of an EU H-EU application (48pgs) - we got an excellent feedback - with both valuable proposals for changes but also information how to avoid similar paragraphs in the future, great service. A service we definitively will use another time.

Helping me get across the finish line

I've been working on my paper over the last couple of years. I knew it needed some "flow" TLC. The person who was responsible for working on my paper did a fine job of smoothing out the edges of my paper. Thank you!

The editor at Scribbr was knowledgeable about even minute APA rules. She edited my paper thoroughly and I feel confident in this final draft. On a side note, be prepared to take a whole day to process the edits!

Highly recommend

Highly recommend. Other websites such as Purdue Owl and EasyBib have been giving me an incredibly hard time creating my citations to the point I was not able to turn in my assignments on time. Thank you for making our lives easier!!

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?
Proofreading
Correction of superficial mistakes, such as typos, misspellings, punctuation errors and consistency errors.
Yes!
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.
Yes!
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.
Yes!
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.
No.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.
