Fantastic service!!

Excellent review of a paper that was deciding my grade. I appreciate both the edits and the feedback to increase my knowledge of correct APA formatting and accurate citations. I needed the paper returned quickly, and the team worked hard to make sure I had what I needed. I just got my grade back, A+. I would 100% use this service again, it was worth every penny!!!!!!

Scribbr is great, don't second guess!

Scribbr is great, I had a long break (9 years) between completing my undergraduate and my postgraduate degree, so was extremely rusty when it came to academic writing. The Scribbr team always give excellent feedback regarding your writing and areas where you can improve. I highly recommend!!

Quality of work done ie resulting improvement is par excellent. I would suggest, there should be an interaction by the expert proof reader and the author, to exchange verbal communication with each other.

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.
