Great service! Excellent

I requested the Scribbr team to proofread my document. It was really great! There was a lot of notes and edits to improve my writing, and I felt the paragraphs improved a lot. The editor understood the goal of my writing and suggest improvements accordingly. The editor even finished my document sooner than expected. I recommend Scribbr proofread service and probably use Scribbr in the future.

AL 4 October 2020

Good proofreading, lackluster reference checking

I used Scribbr to proofread my master's thesis and included reference checking to the package. I have a mixed feelings about the end result. I'm very satisfied with the proofreading and editing part. The person doing the proofreading was clearly not from my exact field of study, but did nevertheless a wonderful job. The quality of the language used in my thesis improved substantially, and the comments were insightful. I'm less satisfied with the quality of the reference checking. There was clearly no coordination between the two editors and the person doing the reference checking made changes that contradicted both APA style guidelines and style used in the main text. He also made some changes to contents of the citations that I could not verify to be correct. All in all, I had to revert many of the changes and it caused a lot of extra work for me. I also asked the customer service for clarification about some of the stylistic choises made by the reference checker. They promised to consult a "Reference Specialist", but never got back to me. Update: After writing this review, I was contacted by Scribbr customer service. They apologized for the quality of the reference check and the communication breakdown with the customer service, and promised to refine their processes so that these kinds of incidents would not occur. Because I had already submitted my thesis and no additional editing was possible, they offered me a full refund for the reference check. I'm happy with the solution.

Best service ever

The price estimation procedure is simple, clear and super fast. I particularly appreciated the possibility to review clarity of my writing. For both of my orders the proofread documents were sent back before the deadline. And my editor provided in-depth comments and grammar explanations for frequent mistakes. And she also sent a kind word about the subject matter of my paper. I will definitely use the service again and already recommended it to my colleagues.

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.
