Academic editing services
Scribo provides academic editing services that assist students, academics and lecturers with grammar, vocabulary, sentence and paragraph construction, academic referencing, essay structure and writing style.
We provide flexible and tailored packages that include various degrees of academic editing; proofreading, copy editing, some re-writing when required, and extensive feedback notes. All clients can avail of our services. If you are a student:
- Making the difficult transition from second to third level education.
- A mature student returning to education.
- An international student studying in a second language.
- A masters or PHD student who needs a second eye on their thesis.
- Struggling with academic writing.
We also offer advanced academic editing services for academics writing any literature, including journal articles and academic books.
We provide tailored academic editing solutions for individual needs. The service is entirely transparent; any changes made to the original document can be clearly seen and can be accepted or rejected, while explanations of complex corrections are provided.
A human element in editing and proofreading, especially pertaining to academic writing, is essential. Our expertise and thorough analysis will identify and correct mistakes that Microsoft Word, Grammarly and other leading software packages will miss.
We offer affordable pricing plans for the specific service that each client requires. Prices are agreed with the client in advance. Minor adjustments can be made after the document is returned. However, subsequent complex editing will incur an extra cost.
This service is for the student who is confident that their work is of a sufficient standard for submission, but requires a meticulous second eye to ensure that minor errors are corrected. Proofreading is the most basic academic editing service we provide, and ensures that:
- Appropriate punctuation is used throughout.
- Correct grammar is employed.
- Spelling mistakes and ‘typos’ are eliminated.
- Syntax is corrected.
Academic proofreading is essential, and is the final step of academic editing that must be taken to ensure that an academic document is complete. Students completing dissertations and theses would benefit most from this service.
Academic copy editing is a more advanced and comprehensive academic editing service. It is concerned with content and context, writing structure and clarity of expression.
- Any inconsistencies and inaccuracies are addressed.
- Style and language is investigated to ensure it is consistent with high academic standards.
- Sentence structure and general flow will be improved.
- Use of vocabulary is enriched to ensure best possible usage and avoidance of repetition.
- Referencing and use of citations are corrected in line with best practice of international academic referencing styles.
- The elements of basic proofreading are also included with this service.
