We improve the flow of your manuscript in our Advanced Editing Service

  • The flow of your manuscript is essential for effective communication of your findings and to increase their impact. A paper that flows well will catch the attention of the journal editor, which is the first hurdle to overcome for peer review consideration. Our Advanced Editing Service improves the flow of your manuscript. We check that paragraphs transition smoothly, sections within your manuscript conclude well and your story is lucid. These make your research article compelling, and improves its chances of being sent for peer review.
  • We ensure that the intended meaning of your sentences is preserved

  • While writing a research paper, authors have the tendency to overlook the fact that certain sentences might actually mean something else! Getting your manuscript read by a person not part of your research group or not directly involved in the paper helps highlight these errors.
  • Our editors specialise in your field of study and understand your research. Hence, they will ensure that every sentence is in line with the underlying theme of your manuscript. Moreover, when the intended meaning of a sentence is not clear, our editors leave comments with suggestions for improvement. In this way, we make sure that you convey the right meaning in your paper.
  • We check that all journal requirements are met, and format* your manuscript to make it publication-ready

  • Journal editors complain that a large number of submitted manuscripts are not formatted to meet journal requirements. This often leads to manuscripts being rejected without even going through the peer review process. Our Advanced Editing Service, includes formatting* your manuscript to meet journal requirements. In addition, we also highlight other essential journal requirements that may have been left out in the manuscript. This speeds up the initial decision making process, once the manuscript has been submitted to the journal.
  • We are proud to say that over 80% of authors have always returned with their next manuscript!

*Please note that we are unable to format to LaTex

Testimonials

“What you wrote in the editorial comments you sent me a couple of days ago to help me develop my intro was really excellent. You really helped turn this very rough draft into a really nice text….Your suggestion about the flow, content, syntax etc was absolutely crucial! Obviously the fact that you are an expert of the field was also really great for me…. I am really happy and grateful for your help and support.”
Marie-Laure Baudet, University of Trento, Italy
“Thanks for your rapid services…your editing/corrections perfectly correspond to my expectations… especially the shortening of the text. This will surely be very useful…Thanks for this nice and useful job”
