Nicely Done!

Doreen proofread my paper, and she did a great job! She submitted it earlier than expected, and that was a nice surprise! Her recommendations and explanations for her editing were clear and understood. I had a great experience!

Excellent service

I can't be happier with the service I received from the Scribbr customer service team and the editor assigned to my manuscript. The revision was thorough, professional and right on time, and the customer service guys kept me updated throughout the process. I hope my publisher is as satisfied with the language quality of my MS as I am!

My experience with Scribbr was outstanding. All of the editors provided helpful information and were very professional. Finally, the finished product was promised on 11/21, and I received a day early. I would recommend Scribbr for any editing projects.

Correction of Master's thesis

I had the pleasure to use the editing and proofreading services twice, as I've handed in two chapters with a delay since I hadn't finished writing them. Both correctors did a tremendous job. The quality was consistent, with the second corrector considering the style that was used for the first batch. I strongly recommend the proofreading service of Scribbr, as it really does improve the reading experience of your paper noticeably. I have also used their check for plagiarism and found it helpful, as it highlights the found overlaps with other papers visibly and makes it easy for you to decide whether it is worth rewriting a sentence or not. All in all a great experience and a strong recommendation from my side!

Good comments on the writing but there are several things to improve for the service

There was a lot of effort made by Scribbr's editor to my document. I appreciate suggestions on what to add to my writing because I had thought about it, but I didn't do to the document. The comments help the sentences flow better and make them easier to understand. I felt more confident with my document after accepting most of the comments from the editor that there was more value added to it. The editor has experience in writing that can understand my writing and make comments accordingly. The team also put effort into reaching out to me by phone to ask how I feel about the service, which I highly appreciate. The service could, however, be improved in some areas. I initially paid with a tight deadline of 1 day that the Scribbr team could not finish on time. They refunded me, but I made another order to extend the deadline to 1 week, and they were able to make it on time. They said they could not open the document because it was locked. However, it was okay on my end, and the document was shown on the website, so I was unsure what was happening. In addition, I requested a change with additional files on my order, but the change did not show on my side of the website. I understood that they might attach the change to their internal system somehow, but I was also concerned about the possibility that they ignored my request. I hope they can improve something about this that would have made my experience better. However, these downsides are not significant to me, that I might consider working with the Scribbr team again in the future.

The correction and tips helped my Chinese student a lot in getting his paper submitted before the deadline. They also learned a lot about good style and I hope to see positive long term effects for his scientific writing.
