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!

Our dissertation editors don’t just proofread – you’ll also receive guidance 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.

Obsessed <3

This is such a helpful tool! I would even say that it is an even better version of my old go-to tool that no longer exists. I am SO GRATEFUL that it is so easy to use and has the ability to find ~most~ of the resources I am trying to cite. One of the BEST features is having the ability to create different lists with their own titles--it has been so helpful for my ADHD needs while working through my Masters program! Thank you also for figuring out a way to choose font and size and making it actually paste into documents SO EASILY and ready to go!!! If I were to make two requests for improvement: First would be that it would just keep me logged in, especially since I have literally no private nor financial information attached. The site is, in my opinion, overcommitted to timing out an account user. Even in one writing session, I will return to the page with my next reference and it looks as though the page has a bug or an error. To fix this I have to take what I feel are unnecessary steps to refresh the page and go through the login process again even when I feel like I really was not gone for very long. The second request is that there be a way to autogenerate more obscure resources (I am admittedly biased, but prioritizing this being available in APA 7th ed. would be the best! haha). And I have also noticed that when there's a reference that the site cannot find, the manual option will ask for information that is not typically needed for APA, and the final resulting citation does not typically appear to maintain the chosen formatting style. So I suppose that is more like 2.5 requests since the last one isn't too bothersome. Anyway, I'm just overall ridiculously grateful I found Scribbr so early on in my graduate pursuits! I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to move efficiently through their research and delivery of information.

Amazing! Grade boost from an "C" to an 'A'

Amazing! This software could have saved many college students from dropping out 10 years ago. Also, I used to use this website before the copy and paste feature 2016 or so. The new update is outstanding! My Bibliographies in APA format are perfect!

A must-have tool!

I use Scribbr for its citation generator, which is a fantastic, time saving tool. As a student, composing research essays is time consuming enough...but it's even more so if you have to go back and type in all of the resources you drew your information from. I love that you can choose from a variety of known citation styles. Often you can copy/paste a link into the citation generator, and it will automatically format the layout of the source using the format you choose. Even when I have to go in and edit, I love how the citation parts are further broken down so that you understand what is required, recommended or optional to include in citing sources. Thank you so much for creating such a helpful tool for students and professionals!

Can I choose between American, British and Australian English?

Yes, in the order process you can indicate your preference for American, British, or Australian English.

If you don’t choose one, your editor will follow the style of English you currently use. If your editor has any questions about this, we will contact you.

Can I have my document edited during weekends and holidays?

Yes, our editors also work during the weekends and holidays.

Because we have many editors available, we can check your document 24 hours per day and 7 days per week, all year round.

If you choose a 72 hour deadline and upload your document on a Thursday evening, you’ll have your thesis back by Sunday evening!

Can I upload my document in sections?

Yes, you can upload your document in sections.

We try our best to ensure that the same editor checks all the different sections of your document. When you upload a new file, our system recognizes you as a returning customer, and we immediately contact the editor who helped you before.

However, we cannot guarantee that the same editor will be available. Your chances are higher if

  1. You send us your text as soon as possible and
  2. You can be flexible about the deadline.

Please note that the shorter your deadline is, the lower the chance that your previous editor is not available.

If your previous editor isn’t available, then we will inform you immediately and look for another qualified editor. Fear not! Every Scribbr editor follows the Scribbr Improvement Model and will deliver high-quality work.

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.


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!
