Polish your grammar

From commas and quotation marks to pronouns and prepositions, your dissertation editor will make sure your text is clear, correct and consistent.

With the Scribbr Improvement Model, the editor will catch every punctuation mistake, check your word choice and sentence structure, and comment on confusing phrasing to help you write more fluently.

Improve your style

Academic writing requires a formal tone – we advise on appropriate wording and bring your style up to dissertation level. It also demands careful formatting, so we make sure you consistently follow academic conventions when using numbers, abbreviations and quotations.

If you lack confidence in your written English, let a language expert sharpen your sentences so that your meaning shines through!

Get personal feedback

Our dissertation editors don’t just proofread – you’ll also receive a personalised feedback letter to help you become a better academic writer.

Your editor will highlight recurring mistakes to watch out for and provide expert tips to improve your writing.

Add-on Proofreading & Editing Services

Structure Check

A strong structure is crucial to a great dissertation. With a tailored Structure Check Report, your editor will check the organisation of your paragraphs, sections and chapters.

They’ll help you reduce repetition and redundancy, improve your headings and titles, and make sure you’ve included the right information in the right places.

Clarity Check

When you’ve spent so long working on your dissertation, it can be hard to step back and assess the clarity of your writing.

With two checklists, your editor will let you know if your argument is logical and easy to follow. They’ll highlight contradictions and help you tell a clear, compelling story.

Reference & Layout Check

As well as dissertation editing, we can help you format your document and sources.
The Reference Check will make sure your citations and reference list are complete, consistent and correctly formatted.

The Layout Check will create a table of contents and list of figures, insert page numbers, and make sure your document looks impeccable.

Fast, simple, affordable

We can proofread your dissertation in 24 hours, three days, or one week – and we guarantee we’ll never miss a deadline.

The process couldn’t be simpler: choose your turnaround time and additional editing services, upload your dissertation, select which pages you want edited, and fill in some details. Then your editor takes over!

Rates start at £0.011 per word, and you can calculate the price instantly – no need to wait for a quote.

This is from my own personal experience…

This is from my own personal experience of having my Master's dissertation proofread. The deadline was tight and initially, I was unsure of what to expect. However, my concerns were soon allayed and my editor Janet did a fabulous job in getting my dissertation turned around in just 48 hrs and at the weekend. She provided supportive and constructive comments over and above what she was being paid for and the whole process ran extremely smoothly. To be honest I am not sure about how I feel at asking for the structure and style to be edited as that in my mind is the responsibility of the postgraduate in my case and the relationship with the dissertation supervisor. I am fairly comfortable with proofreading however as it is easy to become word blind and desensitized when you have been working so intensely on a dissertation for such a long period and another pair of eyes is always a good measure before submission in my opinion. I would recommend Scribber and I was very grateful for the service provided by my editor. I received my grade yesterday and got a 1st so I am more than happy that I chose to invest in having the work proofread and very grateful to Janet for her support.

Great editing service

I really suggest the Scribbs service. The revisors are professionals, they help you to correct the mistakes and they also give you advice to make your work better. The service consists in the work corrected carefully, the comment of the revisor about the entire work and a sheet with your most common mistakes to pay attention for further works!

This is an amazing service

This is an amazing service. I desperately needed help to edit an application in French and my editor was kind, prompt, and incredibly helpful and I learned a lot from all her comments that I can use next time I need to write something in French. I will definitely be using this service every time I need some copy editing help.

Frequently asked questions

Is the editor an expert in my field of study?

When you place an order, you can specify your field of study and we’ll match you with an editor who has familiarity with this area.

However, our editors are language specialists, not academic experts in your field. Your editor’s job is not to comment on the content of your dissertation, but to improve your language and help you express your ideas as clearly and fluently as possible.

This means that your editor will understand your text well enough to give feedback on its clarity, logic and structure, but not on the accuracy or originality of its content.

Good academic writing should be understandable to a non-expert reader, and we believe that academic editing is a discipline in itself. The research, ideas and arguments are all yours – we’re here to make sure they shine!

Can I contact my editor directly?

You won’t have direct contact with your editor, but if you have questions before, during or after the editing process, you can always contact them via the Scribbr support team. We’ll make sure the editor answers your questions.

The editor will also see full details of your order. If your supervisor has given you specific instructions, if you have language questions for the editor, or if there’s a particular area of concern you’d really like them to focus on, you can include these at the ordering stage and we’ll pass them on.

English is not my first language. Can you fix all my mistakes?

Yes! Our editors are all native speakers, and they have lots of experience editing texts written by ESL students. They will make sure your grammar is perfect and point out any sentences that are difficult to understand. They’ll also notice your most common mistakes, and give you personal feedback to improve your writing in English.

I have a tight deadline. Can you edit my document in time?

You choose the turnaround time when ordering. We can return your dissertation within 24 hours, 3 days or 1 week. These timescales include weekends and holidays. As soon as you’ve paid, the deadline is set, and we guarantee to meet it! We’ll notify you by text and email when your editor has completed the job.

Very large orders might not be possible to complete in 24 hours. On average, our editors can complete around 13,000 words in a day while maintaining our high quality standards. If your order is longer than this and urgent, contact us to discuss possibilities.

Always leave yourself enough time to check through the document and accept the changes before your submission deadline.

How do I receive my document when the editor has finished proofreading?

After your document has been edited, you will receive an email with a link to download the document.

The editor has made changes to your document using ‘Track Changes’ in Word. This means that you only have to accept or ignore the changes that are made in the text one by one.

It is also possible to accept all changes at once. However, we strongly advise you not to do so for the following reasons:

  • You can learn a lot by looking at the mistakes you made.
  • The editors don’t only change the text – they also place comments when sentences or sometimes even entire paragraphs are unclear. You should read through these comments and take into account your editor’s tips and suggestions.
  • With a final read-through, you can make sure you’re 100% happy with your text before you submit!
