My editor exceeded my expectations

My editor exceeded my expectations and not only fixed my grammar but also suggested word choice options which made the work more professional. She then called me personally to see if I had any questions. Well worth the price.

The editor who helped with my paper provided a lot of helpful comments. The comments were structured in away that I understood what they were talking about and what I needed to do in order to make the argument I was making in my paper stronger.

Excellent job

The editing was excellent and precise. The paraphrasing of some parts was properly done without losing the meaning of edited parts. It was a job worth paying for. I am putting down my thoughts to write a book and will surely need your services. Thank you once more.

Highly recommended

Hello everybody I experienced the proofreading and plagiarism check of scribbr team for four times and I found that the team members are very supportive and kind, the language expert are highly skilled. In my Ph.D. dissertation I highly appreciate the efforts of the team and Jordan and Shane to sort out the issue with my supervisor. I would never think again about my publications because I have scribbr. Therefore, I highly recommend my colleagues and friends to make use of scribbr language services. Regards

100% satisfied

Kindness, professionalism, and celerity: in my opinion, these three words define the Scribbr proofreading service. The text has been sent back to me within the established time, the reviewers are very prepared and meticulous with the corrections without being rude, on the contrary, adding many suggestions to improve it. I highly recommend it!

THE BEST WEBSITE EVER!!!

It has to be one of the best academic websites I have ever discovered. If you need to cite and maintain different reference lists for a lot of subjects, Scribbr is here to save your day. I struggled with many useless free citation generators and then I came across scribbr and my life changed forever.

Excellent service!

Very fast, very reliable service. The editor left very useful comments on my document that not only helped me improve the document itself, but will be useful for me in the future. Also it is very safe in terms of plagiarism , as you csn delete your document any time from the database, and the editors follow very strict guidelines.

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.
