Objective: To provide a range of effective and affordable author support services to help academics publish their research in reputable international journals.
Methods: With our manuscript health check service, we provide authors with a critical analysis of their manuscript by focusing on the key things that are important to journal editors and reviewers. Proofreading and copyediting is just a bonus. We have also developed a range of unique services including a virtual editorial office and manuscript concierge service to support authors throughout the entire publishing process.
Results: Traditional editing services don't always work. There is no guarantee that an academic paper written in perfect English will be peer-reviewed or published. Just ask any academic that is also a native English speaker. With our services, we help academics or early-career researchers to write well-structured and engaging scholarly papers and help them navigate through the complex world of scholarly publishing.
Conclusion: We developed a unique set of author support services to help academics throughout the process of publishing a research paper in a peer-reviewed journal, from selecting the journal and writing the cover letter, to submitting the paper and responding to the reviewers. We think our services are a much better alternative to traditional article copyediting and proofreading services.
