Manuscript services

Standard Editing (proofreading)

  • Standard editing or proofreading will be performed by an AEEO editor whose background matches with your work to correct spelling, grammar, and word usage errors in your manuscript. A small number of confusing sentences will also be reconstructed by AEEO editors. If your manuscript is already in a good shape and most sentences are clear and concise, you can choose the standard editing service.

Substantive Editing

  • Substantive editing will be performed by two AEEO editors whose backgrounds match with your work. The editors correct, not only spelling, grammar, and word usage errors, but also reconstruct a large number of confusing sentences to reflect a native English tone and voice.

Structural Editing

  • AEEO editors will improve the manuscript structure by adding phrases, rewriting some paragraphs, and reorganizing the entire manuscript when necessary. Additionally, structural editing covers everything included in the standard and substantive editing services. For structural editing, we provide language assistance for no additional charge until your manuscript is accepted by a scientific journal.

Translation

  • We currently provide translation services for Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Italian manuscripts into English. The manuscript will first be translated to English by a native speaker and will then be edited by AEEO editors whose background matches with your work to further polish the technical language.

Cover letter writing and Journal recommendation

  • The editors who edit your manuscript can provide a professional cover letter (1-2 pages) for your submission to journals. 
  • Our senior editor can recommend three journals for submission of your manuscript based on its merit. 

Answering reviewers' questions

  • Acceptance or rejection of a specific manuscript depends mainly on the merit and proper writing of the manuscript. However, we believe that professional communication with journal editors and reviewers is also important for the successful consideration of your manuscript.
