proofreading-and-editing

Proofreading and editing

An experienced academic editor gives feedback on consistency, tone, and bias-free language, and directly improves things like:

  • Spelling and grammar
  • Punctuation and abbreviations
  • Capitalization
  • Sentence structure

You can rest assured that your text follows APA standards and the conventions of your field.

Paper-formatting

Paper formatting

Applying APA format correctly can be a daunting task, but our APA paper formatting experts do it every day. Whether it’s a student paper or a manuscript, we will make sure the format is compliant with APA guidelines regarding:

  • Margins, line spacing, and indentation
  • Font and headings
  • Running head and page numbering
  • and more

APA Paper Formatting  costs $1.20 per page and can be purchased separately or in combination with Proofreading & Editing.

Citation-editing

Citation editing

Your citation expert will ensure that your in-text citations and references are correctly formatted and cross-checked. This includes:

  • Checking capitalization, italicization, and punctuation
  • Providing feedback on incomplete references
  • Improving your reference list’s overall layout

Citation Editing costs $2.75 per source and can be purchased separately or in combination with Proofreading & Editing.

Your team of APA experts

Instead of just one editor, we work with three experts, one for each discipline: language, formatting, references.

Every expert has years of experience in their field so they know the APA guidelines by heart, down to the smallest details and the rarest exceptions.

We put in the extra effort to coordinate these experts because we believe it’s worth it to guarantee the best possible result.

Fantastic work

Fantastic work! I even get comments from the reviewer on what to improve in my writing, hope it will be the same person next time I send my papers (that would be actually a useful feature that you can ask for the same reviewer).

Scribbr is my #1 tool

Scribbr is my go to in college. I never need to worry about my citations, because scribbr takes care of them for me. Many of my classmates stress out about citing properly while I don't even need to think about it.

The service offered is excellent.

The service offered is excellent. The tutor corrected the grammar and syntax and gave me advice and suggestions. A great way to understand your mistakes. My work is more smooth to read, grammatically correct and with a better flow. Work delivery times have been respected. For me it is the first experience with Scribb and I am very satisfied. I highly recommend it.

The best citation tool

The best citation tool! Scribbr really helped me for many of my major school projects. I didn't have to double-check them or wait through dozens of adds to get them either.

Another great job by a great editor

Actually, I didn't want to write another review as I felt that readers may think that it may be fake since I have written a few reviews. But then, this will do injustice to Scribbr because the fact is that they have done another great job for me. Although my Academic English has improved, they are still able to identify and in the process, teach me on getting better like a tutor. They not only correct but also explain why and how it should be. Thank you Scribbr.
