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.

This has been a very helpful tool

This has been a very helpful tool. I used it to help create the reference list for my Ed.D capstone paper. It was easiest when I had the DOI to enter into the search field. However, even without the DOI and just searching by the tile and sometimes adding both title and author, it still found most of the articles and was able to cite them for me in APA 7th for me to add to m reference list. I would say it found about 85% of the articles that I searched for, with about 15% not populating when I searched and I ended up having to cite those manually. I had over 100 articles so all and all, the tool was very helpful.

Having citations copied and pasted pre-formatted is extremely helpful (double-space, Times New Roman, font size 12). Also being up to date with changing standards for different citation styles makes me more trusting of the citations being generated.

Top, snel en concrete feedback ontvangen

Feedback gevraagd voor mijn afstudeerportfolio. Ik heb het document 1 dag sneller terug gekregen, waardoor ik ruim optijd mijn scriptie heb in kunnen leveren. Het nagaan van rode draad en grammatica is echt een aanrader, om er zeker van te zijn dat je een professioneel document inlevert!

An honest graduate students review

This is an honest review from a full-time student with a full-time job and 2 kids. I have very little time to try to get my papers right before submitting them to my professor every week. I use Scribbr, seriously, for every single step of writing a paper. I use the APA template that they provide and fill it in with what I need. I use the Citation Generator for every single reference because I have never mastered that art of getting them right. I can honestly say that Scribbr has reduced my school work each week by at least 2 hours by helping me create the things that I need to succeed. I couldn't be more grateful.

Helpful but...

Helpful tool; however, you still need to double check the information it pulls up, even if you use the DOI information. For APA 7th, there are still quite a few capitalization errors in the titles and journal names. Would get 5 stars if they would fix this and if they wouldn't bug you every time you log in to leave a review!

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!
