At The Editor Site, we critically read your manuscript, making recommendations and suggesting changes at various levels. All comments and changes are made using the Microsoft Word ¨Track Changes¨ function and are therefore easy to follow and accept/reject as you see fit. These final modifications to your manuscript prove crucial in the journal´s final decision to accept your article for publication. As such, we carefully carry out a multi-phase process in order to ensure the highest standards are achieved.
Phase 1 – The first phase is centred on the written English itself. Here we correct the spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and word usage in order to create an easy-to-read, flowing document.
Phase 2 – During the second phase, we check mainly for consistency in terms of units, abbreviations, names, and the format of headings, tables and figures etc. We also verify that the manuscript meets all the journal´s submission requirements.
Phase 3 – This final phase is a more general revision in which the overall scientific content is evaluated. We aim to organize the arguments in a concise manner and state them in a more convincing way in order to give the final manuscript a greater global impact.
Indeed, it is important to note that many journals such as Nature and Science have a broad spectrum of readers. These include both scientists from diverse backgrounds as well as non-specialists. Furthermore, a large percentage of the readers are in fact non-native English speakers. As such, it is of utmost importance that your ideas are communicated very clearly. Unfortunately, as a specialist in your own field, you are often unable to identify those concepts that could be more difficult or unfamiliar to the average reader. This is why it is highly beneficial to have your manuscript reviewed by an external scientist with a different expertise, and here at The Editor Site, this is exactly what we offer you.
Once the revision process has been finished we will send you the final version of the manuscript by e-mail. Any doubts or questions regarding the changes we made can be asked directly to us via e-mail and will be answered on a timely basis. If need be or preferred, we can also arrange a Skype call in order to clarify any outstanding issues.
The time frame for the revision of a manuscript is about 6 days. This will be confirmed with the client, along with the final price, upon receiving the document. If you have a specific deadline, please do not hesitate to ask and we will try to conform to your time restraints.
Apart from reviewing manuscripts, we are also able to write, edit, translate, or prepare any of the following scientific documents:
Grant proposals, student theses, letters to the editor, rebuttals, biotech and industry business plans, websites, press releases, slide decks, congress reports, posters, and presentations.
All of our services are completely guaranteed. If you are unsatisfied with the end result you may contact us within 1 week to request a re-edit. It is important to note that we refrain from making any unnecessary corrections and attempt to avoid any errors. It is, however, your responsibility to ensure that all content and terminology are correct, as, after all, you are the author and the field expert.
All documents submitted to The Editor Site for an estimate and/or for editing are considered fully confidential.
