What can I expect to be edited within my text?
The manuscript will be edited for spelling, grammar, clarity and proper use of language. Scientific accuracy will be considered where possible, but the editor can only make use of their current knowledge and will be not able to undertake extra research to assess the validity of the science.
Do you offer a satisfaction guarantee?
Yes! If your article is rejected or requires further revisions on linguistic grounds, then we will do a further edit, cost free. However, this has so far never happened.
Will you format the article for a particular journal?
No, unfortunately we cannot format the article for a particular journal. We do ask which journal you are planning to submit to for the purposes of language (e.g. US vs. British English) and also because we may be able to help, via comments, on some formatting issues based on previous experience of submitting to certain journals.
What formats can I send documents in?
We accept documents in word, text and rich text formats (RTF). They will be returned in word format to enable you to see the changes that were made.
Can I ask further questions after the editing?
Of course! We are happy to offer a comprehensive post-edit service in case you have any questions regarding the work.
What do you offer for multiple manuscripts?
We offer a 5% discount to return customers or those coming to our service via recommendations from previous customers. For larger bulk orders, other offers can be discussed.
Do you edit references?
This is an additional extra service, where we will edit references into the format required and check that references. The cost is €1 per reference.
Do you edit cover letters and similar?
Yes, we will edit cover letters or letters of application in the scientific field. Providing that if the length is less than 1000 words (and it probably should be!), then the cost is exactly half the cost of the short article (up to 2000 word) price. So €100 for a three day turnaround, €80 for seven days and €60 for the 14 day service.
How much do you charge?
The pricing policy is very clear and you don’t have to wait for a quote, making the process as quick and painless as possible
Article length: includes all parts of the manuscript except the reference/bibliography section (which is not edited unless specifically requested).
Turnaround times: this: is the number of days that it will take you return your edited item. Weekends are also included as normal days, and time is calculated from the moment that I email to say your completed invoice is received and the order is accepted.
