Het is handig

Het is handig, maar soms draait hij de titel en auteur om. Dus altijd even checken of het klopt!

Recently discovered it

Recently discovered it, I was using Chegg's service but this one is way better. It's faster, identifies the citation elements better, and doesn't have annoying ads. I'm switching now!

Game changer and sanity saver

Quite honestly, I can't live without Scribblr being in my life as I get through college. It's an always-open tab in my browser and saves me hours of time and headaches when citing sources for papers. Thank you, Scribblr!

Het is een fijne omgeving waar je je…

Het is een fijne omgeving waar je je bronnenlijst kan maken voor je verslag/rapport. LET OP! het is wel belangrijk dat je de bronnen handmatig bewerkt anders kloppen ze in veel gevallen niet volgens de APA-richtlijnen.

Love Scribbr bronnengenerator

Love Scribbr bronnengenerator. Is mijn trouwe kameraad geweest tijdens mijn studententijd en ik heb nooit opmerkingen gekregen over mijn bronnen.

Game Changer

This app has been such a huge help for my college papers, even when I have to cite videos. I love the integration with chrome and google docs, one thing I would love is if they could make a downloadable version for MacBooks. Safari doesn't give me the option nor the flexibility that chrome does when it comes to plug ins. Other than that the application is seamless and I always recommend it when someone is looking for something helpful to cite a site.

En fornøjelse

Det er anden gang jeg har gjort brug af Scribbr, og som tidligere var det en fornøjelse. Super effektivt og rigtig god feedback. Jeg vil bestemt forsætte med at anbefale deres service til andre.

100% de confiance

Depuis plusieurs années, je demande habituellement à Scribbr de relire et de corriger mon travail en sciences humaines (niveau Bac+8). Comme le français n'est pas ma langue maternelle, j'ai besoin d'avoir les yeux de spécialiste pour finaliser mon texte. Je suis très satisfaite de la qualité de correction et le réspact du délai. Je reviendrai à Scribbr sans hésitation.

Thank you for the thorough and useful feedback both on language, structure and professional considerations. I have received useful input to make the article readable for people other than those who are already familiar with the content

Easily select and deselect pages

To make the process as smooth as possible, simply upload your whole document and select only the pages that you want us to proofread and edit.

You’ll only be charged for the number of words on the pages you selected. To save you some money, we will automatically deselect your table of contents and reference list!

Additional Proofreading & Editing Services

Structure Check

Your editor improves the overall organisation of your document. Are the headings clear and do they fit well with the content of each paragraph? Does every section contain the right information?

In addition to direct changes and comments, our editors use checklists for the abstract, introduction, discussion and conclusion.

The Structure Check starts at £0.0055 per word.

Discover the Structure Check

Clarity Check

Your editor reads your thesis as a normal reader would. Does the story make sense? Is it clear and logical? A fresh pair of eyes can notice things you tend to overlook yourself.

Using checklists our editors will check for contradictions, a logical order of sections, and the clarity of your arguments, concepts and ideas.

The Clarity Check starts at £0.0055 per word.

Discover the Clarity Check

Citation Editing

Our citation experts check your reference list, in-text citations and footnote citations to make sure you consistently follow the guidelines of your citation style.

We are experts in APA Style, but we can help you with almost all citation styles. The citation expert also checks your in-text citations against your reference list to make sure they match.

Citation Editing costs £2.00 per source.

Frequently asked questions

See all
How can I contact Scribbr?

Our support team is here to help you daily via chat, WhatsApp, email, or phone between 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. CET.

Can I choose between the 6th and 7th editions of APA Style?

Our APA experts default to APA 7 for editing and formatting. For the Citation Editing Service you are able to choose between APA 6 and 7.

Can I get a sample edit?

Yes, if your document is longer than 20,000 words, you will get a sample of approximately 2,000 words. This sample edit gives you a first impression of the editor’s editing style and a chance to ask questions and give feedback.

How does the sample edit work?

You will receive the sample edit within 24 hours after placing your order. You then have 24 hours to let us know if you’re happy with the sample or if there’s something you would like the editor to do differently.

Read more about how the sample edit works

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.

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!

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.

 

What types of editing does Scribbr offer?

Every Scribbr order comes with our award-winning Proofreading & Editing service, which combines two important stages of the revision process.

For a more comprehensive edit, you can add a Structure Check or Clarity Check to your order. With these building blocks, you can customize the kind of feedback you receive.

You might be familiar with a different set of editing terms. To help you understand what you can expect at Scribbr, we created this table:

Types of editing Available at Scribbr?
Proofreading
Correction of superficial mistakes, such as typos, misspellings, punctuation errors and consistency errors.
Yes!
This is the “proofreading” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with editing.
Copy editing
Focus on grammar, syntax, style, tone and the conventions of the field. The editor also considers the internal logic of the text and flags any obvious contradictions.
Yes!
This is the “editing” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with proofreading.
Line editing
Focus on language, style, concision and choices. The editor helps you strengthen your story, polish your sentences and ensure that your use of language drives home your ideas.
Yes!
Select the Structure Check and Clarity Check to receive a comprehensive edit equivalent to a line edit.
Developmental editing (i.e. content editing, substantive editing)
This is the first step of the editing process and applies to very early drafts. The editor helps you structure your ideas, decide what story to tell and find direction for your writing.
No.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.

View an example

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!

How do I receive my document when the editor has finished proofreading?

After your document has been edited, you will receive an email with a link to download the document.

The editor has made changes to your document using ‘Track Changes’ in Word. This means that you only have to accept or ignore the changes that are made in the text one by one.

It is also possible to accept all changes at once. However, we strongly advise you not to do so for the following reasons:

  • You can learn a lot by looking at the mistakes you made.
  • The editors don’t only change the text – they also place comments when sentences or sometimes even entire paragraphs are unclear. You should read through these comments and take into account your editor’s tips and suggestions.
  • With a final read-through, you can make sure you’re 100% happy with your text before you submit!
I have a tight deadline. Can you edit my document in time?

You choose the turnaround time when ordering. We can return your dissertation within 24 hours, 3 days or 1 week. These timescales include weekends and holidays. As soon as you’ve paid, the deadline is set, and we guarantee to meet it! We’ll notify you by text and email when your editor has completed the job.

Very large orders might not be possible to complete in 24 hours. On average, our editors can complete around 13,000 words in a day while maintaining our high quality standards. If your order is longer than this and urgent, contact us to discuss possibilities.

Always leave yourself enough time to check through the document and accept the changes before your submission deadline.

What type of documents does Scribbr proofread?

Scribbr is specialised in editing study related documents. We check:

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.
