In my previous status I have already…

In my previous status I have already expressed my highly positive appreciation for editor of my paper. She did the excellent job. The only request which I would like to underline is possibility to chat, at least shortly, directly with editor of my paper. This would help significantly with solving some not clearly understood comments.

It helps

It helps, however sometimes it’s too vague to simple label “please verify” or just highlight the phrases. A clear and simple guideline would be extremely helpful to compare with the charges.

Excellent

The editor Ben did proof editing my paper. Every change was clear and I even got explanation and tips to get better in writing. I got my paper back before the deadline and I received a message. I am very happy with the quality of the proof reading and the service of scribbr. They even work 24/7!

Great for proofreading, did not add much to strengthen my work

The service is trustworthy and helpful for proofreading purposes, but a bit expensive given that I don't think the service goes beyond that. The editor did *not* help to make my dissertation stronger and overall the service is less than what I had hoped for. The editor provided a lot of helpful general comments on grammar, structure and spelling. For some of the comments I didn't understand what they were talking about or how to fix the problem raised. I would give 3 stars, because for example I did not receive feedback to fully address structure & clarity (e.g. What will your editor do?: "Make sure your text tells a clear and logical story", "Comment on the logic behind your argumentation" or "Whether or not each individual chapter supports your document’s main goal") as promised on the website. In addition, it seems the editor did not review my university-specific / supervisor’s guidelines that I uploaded during the order process. Also, I think it would be helpful to have more information on the background of the editor and limited correspondence opportunities with the editor to clarify certain elements in the review. It was unclear how to make contact and time for me was limited. I give 4 stars because there was no argument about my feedback and I got about 1/8 of the total service price refunded. So they stick to their word about customer satisfaction guarantee.

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

When should I use the Own Sources Checker instead of the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker?

The Scribbr Plagiarism Checker compares your document against the largest plagiarism database in the world. It will detect any similarities with documents in that database.

However, you might be unsure if all of the sources you used are in that database – for example, because some of your sources are unpublished. In this case, you can make use of our Own Sources Checker. Here you can add all the sources you want to a private database and compare them with your own document.

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.
