A manuscript health check will provide you with a detailed analysis of the structure and flow of your manuscript and constructive feedback for improving your manuscript. The health check will highlight common grammatical errors as well as sections of the manuscript that are difficult to understand and need clarification. This will allow you to improve the readability of your manuscript before it is submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. Read our blog post to find out how this service is different to traditional editing and proofreading.
What is included in a Manuscript Health Check?
1. A critical analysis of your manuscript
We don't hold anything back. We ask the tough questions and the stupid questions that your colleagues or students are too embarrassed to ask. The goal is to identify any missing or inconsistent information in your manuscript. At the same time, we fix any obvious grammatical and spelling errors. The main goal at this step is to identify any reason why your paper might be rejected by a handling editor before it is sent to a peer reviewer.
2. Author clarification round
We insist on at least one round of author corrections and changes so that the authors have an opportunity to clarify their meaning and respond to our questions and comments.
3. Language check and polish
We perform a final language check and polish to ensure that there are no errors and that your manuscript is ready for submission.
