Description

Angry Reviewer is a free and open-source academic style corrector for modern scientific writing. It generates suggestion for your abstracts, papers, theses, and grant applications. The algorithm knows hundreds of rules - stylistic, typographic, and just best practices. Below are the main guiding principles:

  • Don't hype. Avoid words like novel, highly, clearly, greatly. Better still, avoid all adverbs.
  • Don't use clichés. Avoid overused expressions like holy grail, paradigm shift, in a nutshell.
  • Don't use "very" very often. Usually, there is a better word for it.
  • Be concise. Avoid phrases like by means of, despite the fact that, in order to.
  • Avoid negatives. For example, use "unable" instead of "not able".
  • Avoid redundancy. For example, use "investigate" instead of "conduct an investigation of".
  • Use active voice. Although not always possible, most of the text should be in active voice.
  • Avoid inappropriate language. Keep words like "really, actually, pretty much" for social networks.
  • Avoid rare words and latinisms. Non credo all readers know the meaning.
  • Keep abbreviations to minimum. Abbreviations are hard to read, consider just spelling it out.
  • Beware of zombie nouns. Utilization of nominalizations is causation of distraction.

Beside these and many smaller rules, Angry Reviewer checks for typical typographic mistakes, references, chemical elements, abbreviations and other details.
