Premium View Detail

The premium level of service is useful if you would like to check whether there are any issues you missed in terms of organization, style, logical flow, and content right before submitting your manuscript. The content of the manuscript is carefully reviewed considering the characteristics of the target journal and the guidelines for authors. The logic, clarity, and flow of the text will be improved significantly. A proper academic tone and style that are suitable for the content and context will be chosen, and the strength of claims will be adjusted accordingly. We will also make sure that expressions that sound awkward due to cultural differences are revised properly and that important points are communicated concisely and clearly. Most importantly, we value communication with the author throughout this process. We not only provide feedback on the language and organization, but also double-check whether revisions that we make reflect the intended meaning of the author appropriately and continue working with the author until all the issues are resolved.

  • Review for grammatical correctness
  • Check word choice, field-specific terminology, and capitalization
  • Ensure consistent usage of key terms, abbreviations, numbers, and mathematical terms
  • Restructure sentences to improve style, flow, and clarity
  • Change the text if necessary to align with specific style preferences of the target journal
  • Check strength of claim and revise if needed to align the strength of claims with the evidence given in the manuscript
  • Revise any awkward-sounding expressions where misunderstandings may arise due to cultural differences

Value-added services

1) Response to reviewers

• When editing responses to reviewers, we take particular care to ensure that an appropriate tone and style are used, both for situations in which you are explaining a revision that you made in response to feedback from a reviewer, and in the more delicate scenario of explaining why it was not possible to revise the manuscript according to a reviewer’s request. Responses are also crosschecked with the revised manuscript.

2) Re-edit

• Re-editing services provide an opportunity to fine-tune the intended meaning of certain parts of the manuscript, as well as to ensure that revisions made in response to reviewers’ requests are smooth, coherent, and grammatically correct.
• We double-check whether changes introduced into the text themselves require additional revisions to other parts of the text (e.g., for consistency in abbreviation usage, or sometimes changing a single phrase in a long sentence has implications for the overall grammatical structure of the sentence).

3) Cover letter

• We ensure that the main content of the manuscript is appropriately highlighted for the editor-in-chief in light of the journal’s focus and readership, and follow any specific guidelines that the target journal has for cover letters.

4) Paraphrasing

• Paraphrasing services can significantly reduce the similarity score.
