Journal manuscripts

For manuscripts intended for publication, we recommend our advanced, two-editor service, which offers a more comprehensive review of your work.

Please be aware that, while our service has helped thousands of authors achieve publication, we cannot guarantee that your paper will meet the English language requirements of your target journal. If the reviewers have suggested that your paper needs comprehensive language revision, you may need to consider a substantive editing service. This typically involves major rewriting and restructuring (albeit at a cost of three to five times that of a proofreading and editing service).

We do, however, offer a quality proofreading and editing service by experienced, native English-speaking editors. This is suitable for the vast majority of manuscripts in need of language correction.

16,000+ papers edited each year

Our team reviews over 16,000 essays each year for students and academics from over 110 countries. All of our editors are native English speakers and hold advanced degrees from leading global universities.

We have the expertise and knowledge to improve the language, tone, register and clarity of your paper.

Quality delivered as stated

“I would like to thank you, George, and the editor for the work you have done on my paper. I am a non-native speaker, so writing for my university in the U.S. is very hard for me. I now feel I can look to you to help me and that is very reassuring.”

Dmitri, University of Glasgow

Corrections helped me a lot

“I submitted several papers to Cambridge over the course of my postgraduate studies in bioinformatics. I was always assigned the same editor and they understood my subject well. I believe that the corrections they made helped my grades a lot.”

Phillip, University of California, Irvine

Truly professional service

“A truly professional service. Very responsive to all the many questions I had before and after the proofreading. The quality was very good also. Overall, I am satisfied with the service.”

Bryan, Oxford Brookes University

Subject-matter expertise

There is no substitute for subject-matter expertise. With 300+ editors spanning the full spectrum of academic disciplines, we can pair most documents with a professional in your subject area.

Experienced journal manuscript editors

All of our academic editors hold advanced degrees from leading universities. Many are also members of leading industry bodies, such as the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS) and the Council of Science Editors (CSE). With published papers of their own and experience as peer reviewers or journal editors, our editors are ideally positioned to give your journal manuscript the best possible chance of success.
