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.

Highly recommended!

Meticulous job, plus the check-up was ready ahead of time! I was expecting to just see revisions but there was a load of explanations and justifications for the changes as well, so as a bonus I also learned a lot.

I found this service to be invaluable to me. I find proof reading my own work nearly impossible and this service gave me peace of mind. The suggestions were inspirational and the service was prompt and thorough. Wish I had found this service earlier in my course.

In eerste instantie met een ander bedrijf in zee gegaan; stijlfiguurtekstbureau, hier niet door geholpen en kost vier keer zoveel als scribber. Wat sceptisch toch na eerdere oplichting dit geprobeerd. Echt dit is wat je wilt als je scriptiehulp zoekt! Naast wijzigingen in de tekst krijg je ook tips en suggesties.. zo leer je er zelf van en blijft de scriptie toch je eigen stuk. Dankjewel, hard gewerkt! Ik beveel het iedereen aan :)

Best citation generator ever!

I love this resource! Unlike EasyBib, which is almost unusable because of how many adds there are and how laggy it is, the site is fast, easy to navigate, and so aesthetically-pleasing! Thank you Scribbr!

Amazing revision and feedback!

A great revision and they’re also really good at responding to whatever you put as your concerns or outlines you’re writing by. I tend to use passive voice a lot and put that and the outline with my paper and the feedback I go was very detailed on how I can avoid passive voice and ways to improve my paper. I will definitely use this service again!

Great Experience

Great Experience. Was long looking for a professional proofreading service for my academic papers. The website seemed sometimes a little flashy and wasn't sure what to expect, but Dillon did an outstanding job and suggested very nice sentence structure changes. Will be happy to come back in the future.

The review was detailed and extremely helpful. Unfortunately, I have rarely received this level of support in my doctoral program. The review was not only focused on editing the language used but expressed thoughts about the content. The helpful suggestions were amazingly useful. I will be back for more assistance in the near future.

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!
