1. Editorial Support

Email, live chat, and phone access to an editor. You can ask us any question you would usually ask an editor. We will find an answer to any question you have about your paper or target journal and publisher.

What is the best way to write…?
What is the impact factor of…?
What is another word for…?
I need a template for submission to…
Who is the editor-in-chief of…?
What are the best journals in the field of…?
Should I appeal the decision?
Should I resubmit to the same journal?

There is no limit to the number of papers but the concurrent paper limit indicates the number of papers that we will manage at any one time. For example, if you subscribe to the Assistant Editor service we will work with you on one paper at a time. With the Managing Editor service, we will will work with you on up to 3 papers at a time. If you want us to work on more papers at the same time, you can choose more on the order form.

2. Onboarding

Do you have an ORCID, Mendelay, or scopus profile? Is your publication record complete? We will collect all your contact information, publication records, affiliations, publication, and research history and ensure that your past and future work is correctly attributed to you. We will set up or manage your ORCID, Scopus records, Mendelay profile.

3. Manuscript Analysis

We will screen your completed paper before you submit it to a journal and provide you with an objective analysis. Our editors will read your full paper and tell you if it is ready for submission or recommend next steps such as proofreading or editing. Don’t pay for editing services unless you need them. This alone could cover the cost of subscribing to our virtual editor services.

In addition to the services provided by the Assistant Editor, the Associate Editor will take a more hands-on approach to manage the preparation of your paper. It includes the following additional services:

4. Rejection Analysis

We will analyse your paper after it has been rejected by a journal and provide you with a plan to improve your paper. We will also analyse the editor’s decision and reviewer comments and provide advice about the next steps, such as appealing the decision, re-submitting to the same journal or submitting to a new journal.

5. Collaboration Tools

We will invite you to Microsoft Teams, create a new channel for each project and use the platform for all communication. You can also invite your co-authors for free and use the online version of MS Word for collaborative writing. If you prefer Latex, we will create a project on Authorea or Overleaf so that you can take advantage of the collaborative writing and editing features, templates, and journal submission features.

6. Journal Communication

An optional you@author.scienceeditorium.com email address so that we can help you with all your communication with the journal, monitor status updates, send reminders, and speed up the publication of your paper.
