An Excellent Job

I just had another assignment proofread with all the add-ons. I must say that Ben is outstanding with his editing and feedbacks, comments, etc., and I'm really learning from him too. I wonder when I will be able to write without so many mistakes. Although there are some issues with the referencing, I don't fault them as even the same referencing are different in different universities so I'm not too concern as knowing Scribbr, they will correct/revise them effectively for me. As such, I can safely give them 6 stars.

Overall a quite good experience

Overall a quite good experience. The comments were helpful and helped me improve the academic language, structure, and clarity of my writing. Suggestions were left for confirmation or dismissal. Due to a technical glitch in merging documents on the editor's end, the citation review had to be redone before I could use it. Then however the results were absolutely within expectations. Most importantly, once given deadlines were held.

Great service

I used the citation editing service; it was very helpful. I know there's several citation generators out there, but it's always good to have a live person check your work. Will use this service in the future.

My experience

Very kind team, very easy service, very competent and professional editor, and perhaps, an improvable correction interface. I think pdf correction tools offer an enhanced user-editor experience than microsoft word ones.

Review

Omg thank you SO much to Scribbr for help. I would DIE if I had to cite something in MLA format 18 times. It’s so helpful, would definitely recommend it! They fill in everything except for the website for you! SO helpful - can't express my gratitude for it! It's free and convenient! (lol now i dont have to manually do everything and watch billie eilish ads for 30secs to continue) ~Student

Very Professional Service

Very Professional Service I requested for some checking as I thought that some sentences and words didn't gave the correct meaning. I did revised the conclusion as I was told that it was weak. They told me to raise another order for them to take a look. So forget it. I started to source for alternative proofreaders. Anyway, other works by them were good. 16/11/2021 Sorry for the late Update. Scribbr responded immediately within an hour of my post. We had a good discussion and they were agreeable to what I have stated. We came to an amiable solution although I think it is too generous of them. But whatever initial "grievances" (for lack of a better word) I had, I cannot deny the fact that Scribbr is very good in their work and I seriously haven't found any other company that I would go to.

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.
