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.

In my previous status I have already expressed my highly positive appreciation for editor of my paper. She did the excellent job. The only request which I would like to underline is possibility to chat, at least shortly, directly with editor of my paper. This would help significantly with solving some not clearly understood comments.

It helps

It helps, however sometimes it’s too vague to simple label “please verify” or just highlight the phrases. A clear and simple guideline would be extremely helpful to compare with the charges.

Excellent

The editor Ben did proof editing my paper. Every change was clear and I even got explanation and tips to get better in writing. I got my paper back before the deadline and I received a message. I am very happy with the quality of the proof reading and the service of scribbr. They even work 24/7!

Great for proofreading, did not add much to strengthen my work

The service is trustworthy and helpful for proofreading purposes, but a bit expensive given that I don't think the service goes beyond that. The editor did *not* help to make my dissertation stronger and overall the service is less than what I had hoped for. The editor provided a lot of helpful general comments on grammar, structure and spelling. For some of the comments I didn't understand what they were talking about or how to fix the problem raised. I would give 3 stars, because for example I did not receive feedback to fully address structure & clarity (e.g. What will your editor do?: "Make sure your text tells a clear and logical story", "Comment on the logic behind your argumentation" or "Whether or not each individual chapter supports your document’s main goal") as promised on the website. In addition, it seems the editor did not review my university-specific / supervisor’s guidelines that I uploaded during the order process. Also, I think it would be helpful to have more information on the background of the editor and limited correspondence opportunities with the editor to clarify certain elements in the review. It was unclear how to make contact and time for me was limited. I give 4 stars because there was no argument about my feedback and I got about 1/8 of the total service price refunded. So they stick to their word about customer satisfaction guarantee.

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!
