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 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.

Very reasonably priced for what you…

Very reasonably priced for what you get. I was applying to graduate school after six years away and had nobody to ask for advice or editing help on my personal statement who knew any better than I did. And I was on crunch time. For $30, I got solid advice to make my writing stronger and all my grammatical and punctuation errors fixed (there were plenty), and for another $20, I got it back the same day. I will definitely be using this service again in the future and recommending to my little sister when she applies for undergraduate next fall. Thank you!

Very Helpful!

The editors at Scribber edited and proofread my paper, making it much better. All the edits are done in a way that you can accept and decline the edit, so you see your original paper with the edits superimposed on it. There were lots of comments and explanations to show my why the editors changed something. At the end I also got some comments and and overview of the top mistakes in my paper. It's very useful for both improving that one paper but also for helping me become a better writer. I also love that the editors are very knowledgeable on the APA format and helped me format by paper according to APA guidelines!

Scribbr proofread my 85k thesis in 7days!

I contacted the Scribbr team with a pressing need, proofreading my 85k PhD thesis in 7 days. The Scribbr team replied promptly and accepted my job, even if that meant splitting the work between different editors, which did not happen eventually. The proofreading itself was open to my needs, very constructive and of high quality, and most importantly it was delivered on time! My experience speaks for itself. I am very satisfied with the job, and I would highly recommend it.

Frequently asked questions

What if I am not happy with the edit?

Editing documents is still the work of people. And we, too, can make mistakes. If you’re not 100% happy with the edit, please let us know so we can find the solution that’s best for you, whether that’s a new edit or a refund.

Read more about our 100% happiness guarantee.

Can I choose between American English, British English and Australian English?

Yes, as you upload your document you can fill in your preferences at step 4.

If you do not know if you wish to write in American, Australian, or in British English, the editor will choose American, Australian, or British English based on the English you currently use. If the 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.

What is the Clarity Check?

The Clarity Check is an additional service that you can purchase when you have your document proofread by Scribbr.

If you select the Clarity Check, then your editor will provide you with useful feedback to help you improve your reasoning and ensure that what you’ve written is comprehensive and clear.

The editor will provide this feedback using two checklists and in-text comments. Our editors never implement this feedback directly, as it often concerns your ideas and argumentation.

Note that our editors can only consider the internal logic and clarity of your text. They are not subject matter experts and can therefore not check your facts or tell you the content is correct.

Read more about the Clarity Check

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!
