Great experience

I needed urgently proofreading for my scientific paper so I decided to submit it to Scribbr (never had before). I ordered Proofreading and Editing as well as Structure check and chose a turnaround time of 24 hours. I received the revised manuscript in 6 hours. The editor's corrections and suggestions were very helpful. I am happy with the service. I also received a certificate of the revision after requesting It.

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.
