Standard benefits available with all editing services

Editing Certificate
At the time of manuscript submission, many international journals require an editing certificate from non-English-native authors. In order to enable a seamless submission journey, we issue such certificates for all manuscripts that we edit.
Unlimited Q&A with your editor
We understand that many authors have several queries regarding their edited document. And, to enable a discussion between authors and experts, we offer unlimited (and timely) Q&A with your expert, free of cost.
Journal formatting
The layout and format of your manuscripts need to be consistent with the submission requirements of your target journal. With their extensive experience with style guides such as the APA, MLA, ACS, AMA, IEEE, and all major publisher and journal guidelines, our experts ensure that your papers are ready for journal submission, down to the last detail.
