Comprehensive proofread

Through direct changes and in-text comments, our thesis editors give feedback on:

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Sentence structure
  • Verb tenses
  • And much more…

Using Word’s Track Changes feature, you stay in control and decide which changes to accept or reject.

Feedback on academic style

Besides avoiding language mistakes, your writing should also follow academic conventions. Our editors are specialised in academic texts. They will improve and give feedback on the use of:

  • Informal or imprecise language
  • Inflated and redundant phrases
  • Inconsistencies in tense and voice

Personalised language tips

To help you become a better academic writer, your thesis editor will provide an overview of your most common mistakes in grammar, punctuation and style. With our in-depth guides, you’ll learn how to recognise and correct your own errors.

A fresh pair of eyes can spot issues with your logic or clarity. Through in-text comments and two checklists, the editor’s feedback will focus on:

Couldn't be happier with the service…

Couldn't be happier with the service provided by Scribbr and my editor Linda. Her help is improving my writing and undoubtedly helping me get those extra marks. Will continue to use throughout my degree. Definitely worth the money. My only suggestion for improvement would be some sort of loyalty scheme for returning customers.

Worth Every Penny! THANK-YOU DARREN!

This service is absolutely amazing, I went from receiving 80s to 90s! I was very skeptical about spending the money on this service, but it is super reliable and professional. I will always use this service for now on for all of my assignments. The feedback is detailed and the editors really go out of their way to provide the best work. The service is also very fast, I almost always receive my work back before the deadline. I paid for a 3 day service, and got one back in a day and a half. Many thanks to Scribbr and the team! But BIG thanks to Darren, he is AWESOME! If you get him as your editor, consider yourself lucky! :) Thanks again Scribbr and Darren!!!!

ITS ACTUALLY AMAZING

alright im actually a fangirl of this site for the following reasons :- + The DOI or title only function for generating citations ( for journals) is PERFECTION + it can generate citations for a wiiiide variety of sources + it has a dark mode isn't that amazing?! +it does the apa formatting for you and at the end all you gotta do is to select them all and paste in your reference list - the citation generator for book is honestly pretty bad, almost all books I try to generate citations for never happen sadly but i trust this site to be good enough to improve all these in the future so it is just constructive criticism

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 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!

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

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!
