Your editor will improve the language throughout your thesis, looking at everything from spelling and typos to sentence structure and word choices.

Their mission: to help you avoid sloppy mistakes and ensure that your text fulfills all language requirements!

Proper academic style

My editor did a good job on language but if you are looking for someone to approve your thesis, you need to communicate better with your supervisor. I was super excited because my editor suggested a lot of changes, but he was not an expert in the field I was writing. He JUST knew about grammar and sentence structure. My supervisor rejected my thesis draft anyway. So don't expect any miracles and communicate primarily with your supervisor, Scribbr will just help you make your sentences grammatically correct. I asked Scribbr to help me with the suggestions my supervisor made but they said that wasn't a part of their service.

Incredible editing service!

I consider myself a good writer. When I sent my dissertation to Scribbr, I hoped I would get something back that was worth the investment. My editor Ben was incredible. He went above and beyond anything I expected. I was concerned that my editor would not understand my topic well and therefore would only make surface-level editing or revising suggestions. I felt like Ben not only understood good writing, he also seemed to understand my topic. He not only made many editing suggestions - following APA 7 AND my university's dissertation guide - but he also suggested ways to make my writing sound more professional. He found places in my paper where I needed to add transition paragraphs or reword sentences to make them clearer. I would highly recommend Scribbr to anyone needing professional editing services!

I was very happy with the work done by the editors! I handed in my Bachelor´s thesis in different parts and although different editors worked on the different parts, they turned out cohesive. Moreover, the editors added useful feedback and links regarding the mistakes make and how to prevent them in the future. Thanks a lot for your help!

Amazing critical feedback and helpful editing for thesis proposal

The editors for my lit review and APA referencing helped me a lot! The critical feedback in writing and suggestions helped a lot in my writing and I was able to narrow down themes and questions for my thesis proposal! I was able to then pass and get accepted into the thesis programme. Thank you Scribbr! Worth the money and would definitely use again for my final thesis :)
