Feedback and personalized improvement letter

Additional services

Clarity Check

If you select the Clarity Check, you’ll receive feedback on the clarity of your ideas and arguments.

You’ve probably read your text over and over again. A fresh pair of eyes will ensure your paper is clear and free of contradictions.

The result is a clear and logical story.

Totally worth the money

Scribbr really helped me improve my bachelor's thesis, especially with the level of English as I am not a native speaker. The editors furthermore pointed out my most common mistakes, which will help me to avoid them in the future. Thank you so much again!

Kind and careful proofreading

The review was very thorough, and the feedback report that pointed out the most common mistakes was very helpful. The deadline for the review was also well met. The website was sophisticated and user-friendly, and the procedures were clearly explained. I would use their services again.

This website is a life saver

whenever I procrastinate on an assignment, I write down all my links and hand them in without APA. This website is a lifesaver. it not only gathers all the information by a quick search, but formats everything (including the things it couldn't find!). From just clicking a few buttons, i finished all my references in a matter of minutes. disappointed that i didnt find it before.

Dissertation Editing

My experience with the entire Scribbr team was fantastic. My dissertation was 80,000 words and I needed the draft turned around quickly. Scribbr met the deadline and the edits made the project much stronger. Their customer service is impeccable and each member of their team will go to great lengths to make sure that you are happy. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you, Scribbr!

I'm really happy&satisfied with the proofreadings. It would be much more brilliant if the editor could change the unsuitable/redundant word to a suggested one rather than just mark it to revise.

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.
