Our Editing Service
Who are your editors?
We recruit native English-speaking editors from top universities in the U.S. Editors are selected based on their technical expertise in specific academic areas and editing skills. All of our editors have either a masterӳ degree or a PhD.
What makes your service unique?
The editing and formatting requirements for each journal can be quite diverse. We provide services tailored to fit each specific journal. Not only do we ensure that your manuscript will be error free and well written, we also ensure that it will meet the editing and formatting standards of your specific target journal.
What if I want to submit my manuscript to multiple journals?
When you submit your manuscript to our service, we match your project to the requirements of a specific journal. Once the project is completed, you can resubmit the manuscript for additional formatting services. Our editors will then reformat your document in order to match the requirements of a different journal. Simply click on the resubmit link on the completed projects panel in your account and follow the on-screen directions. We charge a flat rate of $100 per article for each additional journal for which you would like us to format your manuscript.
What type of editing should I expect?
Your assigned editor will correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. He or she will also improve the flow of your paper, eliminate any awkward sentences or phrasing, and ensure that the writing is clear and concise while meeting the formatting requirements of the targeted journal. Editors leave comments for the client to provide further guidance and insight. Once the project has been completed, the manuscript will be ready for submission to the review board of the targeted journal.
How will I know what changes have been made in my manuscript?
Our editors use the track changes feature in MS Word to clearly highlight the suggested improvements to the document. Comments are placed in the margins to provide further guidance and suggestions.
What if I make changes to my manuscript after your staff completes my project?
Manuscripts that have undergone changes can be resubmitted at a 30% discount . Simply click on the resubmit link on the current projects panel in your account to launch a project update.
Do you offer a certificate that verifies my manuscript was edited by your service?
Yes, we can provide an AME certificate upon request that serves as verification that your manuscript has been edited and formatted by our staff and meets our quality standards. To request an editing certification please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are weekends included in your turnaround time?
Yes, weekends are included in our turnaround time. However, our customer support staff is available only Monday through Saturday. Inquiries sent on Sunday will receive a response on Monday.
How do I calculate the word count?
The word count function in MS Word 2007 can be found under the Tools heading; in contrast, it can be found under the Review tab in MS Word 2010. This feature will either count the total number of words in the document, or it will provide a word count for a highlighted section of the document only. Our staff will also verify the word count of each document submitted to our service. This is only true for older versions of Word. In Word 2010, it is found under the review tab.
Is my manuscript safe?
Our editors sign confidentiality agreements when they join our staff. The confidentiality of your research is one of our highest priorities.
How do I make a payment for my project?
We offer two options for submitting a payment. When you submit your manuscript, you can pay using any major credit card through our secure payment partner, PayPal. Alternatively, you can make a wire transfer directly from your bank account.
Will I receive an invoice?
Yes, we automatically email you an invoice after we receive your payment.
