Love

They're really helpful for poli sci stuff. I use their citation generator for everything I turn in and their knowledge base is full of information I can use to help myself understand the (sometimes difficult) readings for my classes.

Awesome

Awesome. Responsive. Extremely helpful. The editor's feedback not only provided the 'fix' but educated me for future assignments. The stress has been lifted knowing that I now have this safety net as I matriculate through the doctoral program!

Absolut zu empfehlen!

Ich hatte bisher noch keine Erfahrung mit dem Zitieren von Quellen. Aufgrund meines Studiums war dies nun aber erforderlich... Zufällig bin ich dabei auf Scribbr gestoßen und kann es nur empfehlen. Davon abgesehen dass die unterschiedlichen Zitierweisen einem optisch super erklärt werden gibt es auch einfach für alle gängigen Zitierweisen einen sogenannten "Generator" indem man all seine Quellen anlegen kann und am Ende für Word exportieren kann - das hat mir sehr sehr viel Arbeit erspart und ich bin begeistert!

Review of a work of a foreigner

As I am a foreigner, I needed a review of my work in order to reduce all the failures I did and to correct for unusual use of certain words. The reviewer corrected for all of the obvious failure and came up with some good ideas to how to express my ideas a little bit easier. I am satisfied with the work and the price was really ok.

Two Thumbs Up

This website is honestly amazing with many other citation generators being paid or ad based especially if you need to get stuff done fast.

Excellent job done!

Scribbr did an excellent job in editing my thesis. I opted for all services and all was done very well and within the deadlines agreed. Scribbr pro-active communicated with me on status. Also, the editor was very flexible in providing chapters already finished. I strongly recommend to use Scribbr in case the language you write your document in is not your native language.

I love Scribbr

I love Scribbr! Other citation generators have tons of ads, are slow-moving, and don't gather all the information from websites or journals properly. I've never gone wrong with Scribbr and I'm so glad I found them. It is a godsend!! At this point, I've not used any of their plagiarism checkers or proofreading options, but I have no doubt I will use them in the future. :)

Best Citation Generator Ever

Best citation generator ever. It's free like they say it is, no hassle. I do not like the tutorial every time, but it's short and tolerable. It's completely ad-free and overall convenient and easy to use. Strongly recommend.

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.
