ORO, Alpha Deomeg 9 August 2022

great help when I didn't know what I was doing.

This really helped me especially when I still did know how references and citation works by practice, even up until now that I am used with research works and assignments, it saves up a great amount of time.

PhD Dissertation Life Saving Service

Edited my 275 page dissertation in one week. Incredibly detailed grammatical corrections, but most valuable were the comments. Challenging my ideas - where my argument was weak and not understood. A copy edit with these folks is a life saver, from confused and stumped to ready for final committee review - that's a huge leap for all of us that are ABD. Considering what you've already invested, the cost is minimal and worth every penny.

Very professional service!

I needed a very specific German personal statement corrected, a service which they don't usually provide, but they did their best and it turned out so perfect! So thankful for that! Been using this service for a couple of years for my german studies, and it is so super practical! And successful!

I had my reflections edited same high quality despite it being a rush job

I had my reflections edited by Scribbr and I requested Neshika again as I felt comfortable with her proofreading. As expected, she did not disappoint me with the same high quality despite it being a rush job in 24 hours. Thanks Scribbr again.

Capitalization Issue - Otherwise Great

Mostly great, but there is a discrepancy between APA guidelines and the capitalization choices. In APA 7 you are only supposed to capitalize the first letter of the first word and the first letter of proper nouns, but Scribbr capitalizes the first letter of almost every word. I actually got points counted off on my assignment for this, so I hope they can fix this. Otherwise, it is great and easy to use when citing articles or web pages.

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?
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.
