Timely Service

Personally, the editing & proofreading service I received for my research project was extremely good. I haven't received my grades as yet but I hope my professor thinks the same🙏🏾. I opted for the 24 hours service but I was so afraid that I wasn't going to receive a timely feedback. I was amazed and pleased when I got the feedback within a few hours!!!! Yes!!!! A few hours!!! Overall, timely service and excellent quality of service. I would definitely be using again in the near future!

Excellent service

I had two documents edited by two different editors and I am very satisfied with the service I have received. Both editors did a thorough work in checking not only mechanical issues, but also clarity.

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would!

If I could leave 6 Stars...I would! From the moment that I contacted Scribbr with questions, I knew that I was in safe hands and I felt comfortable and confident that they would do a good job and they did. Very clear comments were provided, consistent edits and helpful suggestions given. I know that this is an extra expense, however, I believe that it is worth it.

Scribbr found me a reviewer in time in a very busy season and the reviewer completed her work in time. The comments given by the reviewer were very helpful. It was a quite long writing and the price was still reasonable.

Mixed opinions

I thought my paper improved considerably after the review. Unfortunately, my supervisor did not think the same, and to him, there were still many parts that weren't clear at all. Sorry... ********** edited: Scribbr support team was very quick and helpful and immediately offered me compensation. I'd be happy to use their services again and give another try, this time opting for an additional clarity check.

Knowledge Base

Everything you need to know to write a perfect dissertation

As you know, a dissertation or thesis doesn’t write itself.

That’s why we have gathered all you need to know in our Knowledge Base.

Examples, checklists, step-by-step explanations… You name it. We offer them to you for free :)

Our mission?

Help you achieve your academic goals

Whether we’re editing dissertations, checking for plagiarism, generating APA references or writing useful Knowledge Base articles, our aim is to help students graduate.

We believe that every student should have the right tools for academic success. We pave the way to your academic degree.

Questions?

Please contact us

The team is 24/7 available for your questions.

Frequently asked questions

Will my document be published on a (public) database?

No, the Scribbr Plagiarism Check does not result in your document being published in any public database (unlike many other free plagiarism checker services).

As soon as you’ve received the result from the Plagiarism Checker, you can directly delete all details and documents from the Scribbr server.

Which sources are used for the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker, in partnership with Turnitin, compares your document against the largest and fastest-growing content database in the world:

  • Over 70 billion current and historical web pages.
  • Over 69 million journal articles and books from more than 1,700 publishers such as Springer, IEEE, Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell and Taylor & Francis.

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker does not have access to Turnitin’s global database with student papers. Only your university can add and compare submissions to this database.

In your plagiarism report you can see the database in which the original source is found.

Turnitin Similarity Report

How long does the Scribbr Plagiarism Check take?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker needs approximately 10 minutes to process your document. This time is needed to compare your paper with a massive database with billions of web pages and publications. Documents larger than 35.000 words can take a bit longer.

We will send you an e-mail when the check is finished!

Can I check my document for plagiarism multiple times?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker will only check your document for plagiarism once. Don’t worry – if you have followed our guide, as well as our articles on preventing plagiarism and citing sources, there is no need to perform a second plagiarism check.

Keep in mind that if you try to avoid plagiarism by paraphrasing, you still need to include a reference to the original source.

If you still want to perform a second plagiarism check, you’ll have to buy a new check at the regular price.

Will I get a 100% match at my school when I use the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

We understand this concern. However, since the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker does not store any documents that it checks in a shared database, it’s impossible for this to happen.

As an added precaution, you can also personally delete your details and documents from Scribbr’s own server as soon as you’ve received the results of your Plagiarism Check.

Will the results be the same as the results of the check used at my school?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker is optimized for students, which means that you will receive a detailed report with extra information to fix and avoid plagiarism, similar to the report received by your school.

Minor difference

Universities often have their own database of (prior) theses. Scribbr has no access to those databases. When you copy data from another thesis that is not publicly accessible, the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker will neither be able to detect plagiarism nor identify the source of this data.

However, most papers are actually publicly accessible since many universities and schools have public databases. This means that the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker is able to find these papers.
