Editing

We’ll give you return options when we send our quote. If you’d like to see what options are available beforehand, please enter your document’s word count into our approximate cost calculator.

When we edit your paper a second or further time after preliminary submission to a journal the quote is based on the word count and the amount of editing work required, and is thus generally less than the original price.

Standard Editing is by far our most requested service, but if you’d like to engage more with the editing team, commenting on their work and having them implement further changes according to your feedback, then Premium Editing may benefit you.

Our preferred method is to convert Latex files to Word documents that can then be edited with the changes tracked. We don’t touch any of the Latex code,so you can copy the text back into your Latex editor afterwards. Of course, if you’d prefer we can also work on the hard copy printed PDF.

It maybe possible to reduce the word count a little within the scope of Standard Editing. An extra cost is likely for larger reductions.

Yes, we can format papers in line with APA and Chicago, or any specific journal guidelines if you can send us a link.

All of our editing involves two read-throughs by the initial editor and then a final check by an experienced senior editor who provides feedback, if necessary.

Our guarantee is that if you don’t alter a manuscript that we’ve edited and it is rejected by a journal on purely English language grounds, we will offer to re-edit it free of charge.
