Scribbr editors

Have your academic work checked by our thesis experts!

An experienced Scribbr editor improves your language and provides feedback on your document’s structure and clarity. All of our editors have successfully completed our Scribbr Academy. That means they’re experts in academic writing.

Based on your field of study, we match you with the best available editor to improve your thesis. Afterwards, we always check the editor’s work. You can ask as many questions as you like along the way!

Well-constructed sentences

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

Their mission: not only to help you avoid sloppy mistakes, but to ensure that your text is as strong as it can be!

Proper academic style

Do you struggle with verb tenses, abbreviations, numbers or informal language?

Your editor knows these issues inside and out. They will make sure that your thesis is ready to be turned in, error-free.

Personal feedback and useful tips

Our feedback is designed to help you improve as a writer.

Your editor will provide you with practical suggestions to make your thesis the best it can be!

Always available and punctual

We know that deadlines are extremely important, so we’ll always meet yours. Choose how quickly you want your edited document back: 24 hours, 3 days, or 1 week.

In addition to our thesis Proofreading & Editing service, you can choose the Structure Check and Clarity Check. All our services are available on weekends and bank holidays.

Satisfied

I was hesitant to use such a service on the Internet, but in the end I was really satisfied with the quality of the proofreading. It is quite expensive, but I think the price is reasonable for the professional service.

An excellent proofreading service

An excellent proofreading service. The editors were thorough, friendly and gave advice on subtle changes I could make to improve the quality of my expression. I would recommend this service to anyone who needs a second pair of eyes on a substantive writing project.

Very good service

Very good service! When I saw the price, I was a little shocked at first. However, now that I have seen the work behind the corrections, I find it justified. I could really learn a lot from the hints and have learned a lot about scientific work. If you have the money, I really recommend it!

A strong 4

The process was really simple and I got some advice and help with better grammar and structure of sentences. The customers service was also excellent in helping me with some questions. I want to give it a strong 4, the reason for this is that it helped a lot but my teacher still had some notes on grammar/sentences after the corrections of this service

Highest praise and gratitude for this service

I cannot remotely begin to adequately express how grateful I am that this service is available and for the hard work of the editing team. The customizable options are absolutely phenomenal; the 24hour option is truly live saving. The user friendly website, process of looking at information for what services I needed, information to understand how the process would work, uploading my documents, options to add notes, timely emails, and ease of accessing the revised documents was truly an impressive service. The comments on my 'most common mistakes' is a resource I will be able to use going forward to improve my writing skills, so helpful! I would highly recommend this service to anyone and everyone (maybe don't wait until your project deadline is 2 days away, but if that does happen to you like it did me, you will be so thankful for choosing this service!)
