I have not gotten a citation wrong yet!

This makes me move along quicker with citing and editing papers. Very rarely are they unable to cite a source.

Please no A.I. for source titles.

More entries are included and there is adequate space to save cited sources in subfolders. A single issue with which I am experiencing frustration is with the A.I. suggestion system for entering APA 7 titles. The old system capitalized characters in the correct places.

Could not have attained my degree without out Scribbr. The sole reason why I have written so many flawless references in APA! Thank you Scribbr!

Quick and concise

Quick and concise. With very good but at the same time kind feedback that really helps. This helps you to get your paper or chapter to a level that, as not native English speaker, you can hardly reach. Wonderfull work.

Indispensable for Doctoral Students

Having to cite in various formats (i.e. APA7, Chicago, etc.) is daunting. Scribbr is an invaluable and timesaving tool.

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.

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.
