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.

Positiv überrascht

Ich war anfangs skeptisch ob es mir viel Nutzen würde meine Hausarbeit korrigieren zu lassen. Aber die Kommentare meiner Korrekturleserin Caroline waren wirklich hilfreich. Und es waren viel mehr Fehler enthalten als ich gedacht hätte XD ich bin froh, dass vor Abgabe auf diese aufmerksam gemacht wurde. Einziger Kritikpunkt: für alles einen extra Preis zu verlangen finde ich etwas viel. Bsp. könnte die Genderkorrektur nicht beim Korrekturlesen dabei sein? Oder der Verständnischeck? Nichtsdestotrotz: Vielen Dank an das ganze Team für ihre hervorragende Arbeit

Jeden Cent wert

Ich war echt nervös weil ich garkeinen plan hatte ob meine bachelorarbeit gut ist oder nicht. Ich habe 7 Tage Zeit zur korrektur angegeben und habe schon nach ein einhalb Tagen meine korrigierte Arbeit zurück bekommen. Im Prinzip wurde fast jeder satz optimiert und viele Hinweise für Verständnis und rote Faden gegeben. Könnte nicht zufriedener sein die Hinweise und Verbesserungen sind alle top und wäre ich alleine nie drauf gekommen. Kann ich jeden empfehlen der sich nicht sicher ist. Preislich für das Niveau voll in Ordnung weil die Kopfschmerzen weg sind.

Bruikbare kommentaren en waardevol naleeswerk

De verschillende onderdelen van mijn scriptie werden door respectievelijke taalspecialisten nagekeken. De opmerkingen waren steeds duidelijk en pasten binnen het geheel van de scriptie. Dit maakte bij het nalezen meteen duidelijk waar ik meer aandacht aan moest besteden, en wat snel kon worden overlezen.

Siempre me salva de muchas

Siempre me salva de muchas. Desde el colegio la vengo usando y en la universidad sigue siendo de las mejores herramientas que siempre puedo confiar. No se si es mucho pedir. Pero me encantaría que hubiera la opción de darle varios links a la vez para hacer el apa y no tener que estar uno a uno. Pero cumple muy bien con su función.

Works great!

My dissertation after reviewing looks much better than it was before. And passed my PI's review instantly. To be honest, I don't know why those changes matters that much, but it read great afterwards. Guess thats why we need a professional reviewer.

Goede klanten service als je niet blij bent!

Bij het doen van de gratis plagiaat check kwam er een "Gemiddeld risico" uit. Hierdoor dacht "oh shit hier moet ik iets aan doen", echter, na het volledige rapport te kopen zag ik al direct dat het voor mijn situatie niet om plagiaat ging waardoor ik niet heel blij met mijn aankoop was. Na mijn verhaal gedaan te hebben over de telefoon heb ik mijn geld terug gekregen (gezien het mijn eerste keer was). Doordat ze met me meedachten en snel met een passende oplossing kwamen, ben ik heel erg blij met de klanten service van Scribbr. Dat de plagiaat checker voor mij niet relevant was betekent niet dat deze in het algemeen niet goed is, want kijkende naar het rapport werk hij prima. Mij had het geholpen als er duidelijk stond wat de risico niveau's precies betekende en de pagina's waar plagiaat gevonden is.

Echt fijn

Nu hoef ik mijn literatuurlijst niet zelf meer te maken. Het is top. Alleen 1 ding, het valt mij op dat de bronnen van uit een URL niet altijd goed genoteerd staan (bijvoorbeeld juiste volgorde volgens APA-richtlijnen)

What is Scribbr’s 100% happiness guarantee?

At Scribbr, we promise to make every customer 100% happy with the service we offer. Our philosophy: Your complaint is always justified – no denial, no doubts.

Our customer support team is here to find the solution that helps you the most, whether that’s a free new edit or a refund for the service.

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!
