Provide your authors with high-quality editorial services through our editing and journal formatting services, which are designed to transform documents into high-impact publications. Our highly qualified editors deliver superior output by performing a thorough two-level language and subject-area check of every manuscript.
English-language Editing and Manuscript Formatting
Our primary editing services—Advanced Editing and Premium Editing—address specific focus areas such as poor language or structure that could result in journal rejection. Both services include a complete language, grammar, and formatting check.
We offer translation as a support solution to non-English speaking authors who choose to write in their native language but seek to publish in an English-language journal. Each document is handled by an experienced, subject-matter expert, resulting in a correctly translated, well-edited, and publication-ready English-language manuscript that is true to the original content.
Our comprehensive journal support services allow you to tackle increasing submission volumes, so that you can scale up publication workflow efficiently and reduce the burden on your editorial staff.
We have customized the traditional journal processes of manuscript screening, peer review, language editing, and formatting to provide journals and publishers with cost-effective, low-effort solutions to accelerate the publication of high-quality scholarly works. These services are designed to improve journal workflow, to overcome production bottlenecks, and to reduce time-to-publication.
Pre-Peer Review Manuscript Screening
Our publication experts work closely with journal editorial teams to quickly process large submission volumes and identify the best papers that match the scope of the journal. We can add additional screening checks for plagiarism, language, and formatting.
Rapid Technical Review
This service is designed to expedite the peer review process without compromising the quality of peer review. It helps journals meet aggressive production turnaround times.
Editage has extensive experience reviewing the technical content of research manuscripts and providing expert comments to guide researchers on improving the content of their manuscript before submitting it to the journal. We have leveraged this experience to develop a user-friendly report that alerts authors to critical changes required that will help increase their chances of success in peer review. This report can be used by journal editors as a basis for a quick second-level assessment. Our professional peer reviewers can also conduct rapid reviews of manuscripts to reduce time-to-decision.The Rapid Technical Review includes:
- Reviews by subject-matter experts with extensive publication records
- A comprehensive scientific evaluation of the manuscript that is customized for the journal
- Provision of clear statements of scientific weaknesses and recommendations for revision
Through our Journal Support Services you can either
Cost-effectively outsource the peer review process to Editage, thereby saving time and resource investments
Offer your authors the option of expediting the peer review process by choosing our Rapid Technical Review, which can be included with their journal submission package.
Our Author Education Services allow you to empower your authors with knowledge of the publication process. Journals and publishers would like to communicate with authors to help them understand the process, but lack the resources to do so.
Editage can help you bridge this gap by collaborating with you to offer educational workshops for your authors. Our experienced trainers and publication experts understand author challenges and can customize their training material for the intended audiences.
We can conduct engaging and interactive educational workshops for your authors on various aspects of the publication process—such as tips on manuscript preparation, advice on navigating the publication process, orientation to publication ethics, and understanding the need for sensitivity in scientific reporting. We also organize collaborative multi-venue workshop tours with journal editors to reach out to authors across multiple locations. Our trainers will customize workshop material to meet your authors’ learning needs.
Online seminars are another way by which you can reach participants across locations. The interactive format of our online seminars allows participants to get their questions answered in real time. Commonly discussed seminar topics include manuscript preparation tips and orientation to the publication process.
Online Educational Content
We can also provide your authors with general and customized online educational content to help them more fully understand the publication process and follow best publication practices. Our content includes short training videos that test for content retention through quizzes, and a certificate is provided on completion.
