How it works

Taming your manuscript

How does it work?

The service is very simple and operates mostly by email, a typical transaction would be as follows:

1)  You submit a completed enquiry form, along with your manuscript via email to

2)  You will receive a contract for the work which includes a quote for the costs and confirmation that article can be returned within your requested time frame.

3)  Should you decide that you wish to use the service, then you print, sign, scan, and return the contract by email.  You will receive a receipt of your order within 24 hours, and a date by which you can expect the edited version to be delivered.

4)  The edited version of the manuscript will be delivered by email in two versions:

  • The “edited_detailed” version, where all changes can be clearly seen in the review function of word
  • The “edited_clean” version, where all changes have been accepted, but comments remain

5)  The invoice, which is delivered along with the edited manuscript, must be paid within 14 days of completion of the order.  Payment is to be made by bank transfer.
