I thought the corrections were really helpful and I appreciate that she took the time to go through it and give nice comments. It also came back earlier than I had thought and that was very effective. I'd recommend it. Thank you very much :)Read review on Trustpilot
I recently sent out a sample of a manuscript to five different proofing organisations. Scribbr was not the best, but also not the worst. Their efforts were good, with few misunderstandings, but two other services were above expectation, leaving Scribbr in third place. I would say the service is adequate for many and great if you don't want to spend time reviewing many changes. For me, I preferred the eager and deeper edits of the other services, even if they had a few mistakes and misinterpretations I had to undo.Read review on Trustpilot
I requested a 7 day turn around of my 111 page dissertation. The Scribbr editors provided professional edits, comments, and recommendations to assist me in drafting the final version of my paper.

Within 12 hours of submitting a 50,000 word document, I was paired with an editor who showcased his talents in a 2,000 word editorial preview. The attention to detail was impressive and exactly what I needed to polish off my work. The final edit was returned promptly with great feedback throughout. All I can say is: I wish I would’ve found Scribbr at the beginning of my project rather than at the end!Read review on Trustpilot

Focus on language, style, concision and choices. The editor helps you strengthen your story, polish your sentences and ensure that your use of language drives home your ideas.
Select the Structure Check and Clarity Check to receive a comprehensive edit equivalent to a line edit.
|Developmental editing (i.e. content editing, substantive editing)
This is the first step of the editing process and applies to very early drafts. The editor helps you structure your ideas, decide what story to tell and find direction for your writing.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.
