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 is 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.

Both the in-text corrections and the comments were very helpful! It's nice to have consistency in a document (e.g., common use of acronyms, punctuation, and pointing out where we hadn't defined terms), especially after it's been through multiple rounds of edits from co-authors. This copy-edit brought everything back to a consistent baseline. I would recommend this service, and will likely use it again in future

All around I'm satisfied. They are quick and professional. One thing only, sometimes when words are profession specific the who looked att my text changed it into something unrelated. So, be careful.
