All of Our Editing Services Include the Following:
- Personalized Service - Our clients receive a personal response, including responses to questions and requests, to all emails within 12 to 24 hours. We tailor our services to your needs.
- Deeper level of editing - We do not limit the number or complexity of edits per page. Your manuscript is edited until it is completely polished. Since 1997, manuscripts edited by SciTechEdit International have had a better than 94% publication rate.
- Pre-submission review of minor changes - Manuscripts often require last-minute changes or additions. Changes and minor additions to a manuscript are reviewed and edited for you prior to submission for peer review at no additional charge – just mark the changes so that our editors can rapidly provide the review and editing you need.
- Unlimited rounds of questions - Your questions are important to us, no matter how simple or complex. We are always happy and available to answer your questions about your changes and additions to your edited manuscript at no additional charge.
- Post-submission re-editing of minor revisions (<10% of the originally edited manuscript) - We do not charge to edit changes and additions to a manuscript we edited following submission and review that comprise <10% of the originally edited manuscript – just mark the changes e.g., by highlighting, underlining, etc. to facilitate rapid review and editing of the altered text.
- Highly experienced and trained science editors - Our editors have a minimum of 5 years of full-time science editing experience. Once hired by SciTechEdit International, they undergo ongoing continuing education in best science editing practices. Our editors are committed to providing the highest quality editing while providing complete confidentiality.
- Full-time, professional science editors - Our editors have only one job - helping you to produce the best written science communication possible. Our editors are not current researchers, postdocs, or graduate students who are editing as a second job - their only job is to edit your manuscript and help you publish your findings.
- Flexible return times - Whatever your deadline, we will help you make it. While our published rates vary from 48 hours to 14 business days, we will work with you to meet your deadline, whatever it may be. We are here to meet your needs.
Our Comprehensive Editing Service Also Includes the Following:
(click here for a complete description of the Comprehensive Editing service)
- Word/character count reduction - We edit your document to meet the word/character count limitations of the journal.
- Formatting - Let us know the journal to which you are submitting your manuscript and we will ensure that the manuscript conforms to the requirements of the journal's Guidelines to Authors, including the references, citations, proper use of abbreviations, UK vs. US spelling, correct word count, and formatting of headings and subheadings.
- Reference library maintenance - References in software databases such as EndNote™ or Reference Manager™ often contain typographical errors, are incomplete, formatted incorrectly, or inaccurate. When necessary, we will export your EndNote Library, check that your references are accurate and correct, and return the corrected EndNote library to you (additional charges may apply).
- Customization of EndNote™/Reference Manager™ Style Guides - EndNote saves time - unless the Style Guide is out of date, inaccurate, or unavailable for your journal. When necessary, we will update, correct, and create EndNote Style Guides to meet the current requirements of the journal and send it to you (additional charges may apply)
