Doctoral dissertation

Scribbr and the editor assigned to proofread and edit my dissertation are very professional and prompt in the delivery of their service. While Scribbr gives me a superior customer service, the editor is very patient and goes extra mile to address every word in my document. They are wonderful people to work with and care much about their customers.

The process was easy

The process was easy, the cost was fair, and the document was actually a little early. My instructors approved it, and the feedback from the editor was in line with my instructors expectations. Great job.

Research Paper

It was a pleasure to work with Daniel and Gerben. Daniel was my main editor while Gerben made sure that my sources were cited correctly. Daniel's input was very helpful and made my essay more cohesive. Gerben, meanwhile, pointed out that I forgot to cite one of my sources, which saved me from a lot of potential grief. Many thanks to Daniel, Gerben, and the rest of the Scribbr team.

Your Services Are Worth Every Penny

I have used Scribbr many times. I signed up to Trustpilot just to write this review. It simply is the best proofreading service I have ever used. Amazing results, with great recommendations on how to improve your writing in the future. It's the attention to detail not only for the writing, but outside too. The website is beautifully designed and extremely intuitive. Furthermore, their plagiarism checker is simply the best; using the same system most university's use (being Turnitin). You have an extremely loyal customer; your services are worth every penny.

My first English language thesis

This was my first English language thesis (non-native English speaker) and the work done by the editor was outstanding. The insight provided helped me to format the thesis to be more clear to the reader and also to be more technically and grammatically correct. I highly recommend Scribbr for any thesis work.

Highly Recommended!

I used the proofreading and editing service for my document. I highly recommend Scribbr for the following reasons: (1) The editor delivered the proofreading and editing of my document very fast, one day earlier than expected. (2) The comments were very precise and made sense. (3) He explained each comment and the reason so that I could learn new things. (4) The prices are reasonable for the services.

I was very impressed with my results

I was very impressed with my results, although I have not received a grade yet, but I feel it will be a good grade. The paper only had 7% similarity which is great considering school will allow 20%. I will continue to use this company throughout my program.

Yes!
This is the “proofreading” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with editing.

Yes!
This is the “editing” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with proofreading.
Line editing

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.
