  • 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.

Clarity Check

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:

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 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.

Frequently asked questions

See all
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.

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 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!

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!
