What do online proofreading tools do? 

Simple online spell checkers only search for basic mistakes. Online proofreading tools go further. An initial EasyBib proofreading scan can catch complex errors like:

    • Subject-verb disagreement
    • Punctuation errors
    • Sentence fragments
    • Missing commas
    • Run-on sentences
    • Misused pronouns
    • Word choice errors

Once your proofreading scan is complete, you review each card to see what error was found, an explanation of why it was flagged, and suggestions on how to correct it. This helps ensure that you understand and learn from the suggestion as you edit and improve your paper.

Custom feedback from experts 

Online tools are a great resource, but they can’t do it all. English is a tricky language, and sometimes, these tools can’t give you all the answers you need. To provide the specific feedback you need in those cases, there’s Expert Check from EasyBib Plus.

Expert Check provides a personalized, in-depth review of your writing by a live, professional proofreader. You can submit a paper at any time to receive detailed feedback on elements like:

    • Topic
    • Development
    • Audience
    • Organization
    • Cohesion
    • …and other components

You’ll be given scores on these different elements, explanations of what was great, and suggestions on how to revise any areas that could be improved. It only takes 48 hours to submit a paper and receive a detailed proofreading report. An EasyBib Plus subscription includes up to 15 Expert Checks each month.

Using Expert Check and the automatic EasyBib proofreading tool can save you time and help you turn in your best paper!

Why should I get my paper proofread? 

People may overlook an occasional typo or grammatical error in a casual text or email, but in academic writing, the standards are much higher. Small mistakes can affect your academic career in a big way.

College instructors expect your work to be clear, concise, and technically correct. That’s why proofreading is so important.

    • Unclear, poorly written work sends a message that you aren’t giving your classwork your best effort.
    • Technical errors can even send the message that you’re not ready for college-level work.
    • Work that is perceived as rough will likely get low marks, affecting your class grade.

As a result, bad writing can cause your grades and your academic reputation to suffer. If you’re hoping for internships, mentorships, or letters of recommendation, turning in poorly done work can lead to losing out on valuable opportunities.

There’s no doubt that papers take a lot of effort to write. A stellar essay requires a plan, an outline, and research. No wonder so many of us feel burned out when a first draft is finished. It’s tempting to immediately submit an essay as soon as it’s finished so you can forget about it. However, taking a moment to do some proofreading can be a literal grade saver.

Luckily, you can do an online check of your paper using EasyBib proofreading tools.

Why use EasyBib online proofreading tools? 

Having a resource such as the EasyBib proofreading tool is like having a personal tutor you can carry in your pocket. It’s available to help with checking your paper any time of the day or night.

It will also give you honest, helpful feedback without any judgement. Best of all, you can rely on EasyBib proofreading tools over and over again—there’s no limit to how many papers or revised drafts you submit.

Here’s a summary of everything EasyBib proofreading tools can do:

    • Look for 400+ of the most common grammatical errors.
    • Check your paper day or night.
    • Allow you to upload an unlimited number of papers.
    • Look beyond typos to find ways to improve your paper’s writing flow and style.
    • Provide feedback that is judgement free.

Help! It’s not just proofreading, I’m also terrible at citing sources.

If you struggle with citations, you’re not alone. Citing sources is often students’ least favorite task. But, failing to cite your sources properly can damage your paper’s credibility. It can even lead to getting your essay flagged for plagiarism.

The EasyBib proofreading tool also has an option to scan your paper for unintentional plagiarism. If there is duplicate text online, the tool points it out for you to rewrite or to cite it as a direct quote. There are also EasyBib citation tools that can help you create in-text citations and build your reference or works cited page.

I’m a student on a budget. I can’t afford a personal tutor or private proofreader. What are my options? 

If you need a final proofread before you submit your essay but don’t want to look through a freelance marketplace, a subscription to EasyBib Plus can help. It’s free to upload a paper to the online proofreading tool, and the first five suggested grammar corrections are available for free.

EasyBib Plus also offers online plagiarism scans and Expert Check proofreading by a professional proofreader. In summary, a subscription to EasyBib Plus unlocks a full suite of proofreading tools to help you turn in an error-free paper every time. You can sign up for a free 3-day trial or enroll in a low-cost monthly subscription. *
