Both the in-text corrections and the comments were very helpful! It's nice to have consistency in a document (e.g., common use of acronyms, punctuation, and pointing out where we hadn't defined terms), especially after it's been through multiple rounds of edits from co-authors. This copy-edit brought everything back to a consistent baseline. I would recommend this service, and will likely use it again in future

I wrote my thesis in Dutch

I wrote my thesis in Dutch, which was then corrected by an Scribbr-editor. Feedback and explanations were very clear and understanding. The spellings- and grammatical control were amazing.

All around I'm satisfied. They are quick and professional. One thing only, sometimes when words are profession specific the who looked att my text changed it into something unrelated. So, be careful.

Final Doctoral Paper

An author recommended Scribbr to me and I was very happy with their work! Service had a quick turnaround and was thorough. I appreciate all the comments, edits, and justification for the changes. I could tell Doug (the editor) spent significant time on my work and understood my topic. Doug was professional and personable. This was a high-stakes assignment for me and Scribbr helped reduce my stress. Highly recommend and would use this service again!

My article had a great improvement and the editor help me to understand some of my regular mistakes. The article goes directly to a magazine and now I am more confident about the details I was no seeing. Very detailed and accurate. The article is in Spanish and Virgina was great in suggestions.

Very useful edits that improved my paper

I recommend it in terms of structure, language and content analysis. I got very useful suggestions, corrections and comments. The only drawback was that my paper needed to follow specific requirements towards paper format, which I had provided, but the review didn't consider them. As long as you follow the format requirements yourself and take account of other suggestions, this is a fantastic service! You can precalculate how much a review would cost for you without any registration or payments, which is also very useful.

Plagiarism checker can be misleading but customer service is great.

EDIT: Since posting this review the customer service has actually been exemplary so I have changed from a 1 to a 4. Still not happy with the scare high-risk alert but the customer service has been really good and I've been left with a satisfactory outcome. Performed on of the free check to be met with big red warnings telling me the risk of plagiarism was high which prompted me to purchase a full check. The results were for words like 'and' or 'the' or my references being flagged. These DO NOT warrant plagiarism and I feel I was panicked into buying a premium check. Not only this, but I exited the premium check screen and was unable to get it back. I was never prompted to create an account when purchasing the report so it is not saved anywhere. I didn't even get the chance to fully review it. I wasn't happy so I contacted them to ask for a refund because it says on their website, word for word, 'Not 100% happy? Get your money back, no questions asked.' and they've not replied to me for 5 days. I sent a follow up email 2 days ago which they've also not responded to. Their premium checks are not worth the money, do not let the scary 'high risk of plagiarism' screen scare you.

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.
