Cactus Communications / Editage Will Provide Editing Services to Society for General Microbiology Authors

Cactus Communications, Inc. (CACTUS) a premier provider of English-language editing services through its internationally recognized brand, Editage, announces that they have formed an alliance with the Society for General Microbiology (SGM) Publishing Department.

SGM has placed information about language editing on its Information for Authors page. They have also installed the Editage applet, which enables authors to go through to the Editage website to have their manuscripts professionally edited prior to submission. Language polishing assists the author community in producing well-written manuscripts, and is especially helpful for the growing number of English-as-a-second language (ESL) authors, worldwide. CACTUS will offer three levels of service through the applet: Proofreading, Advanced Editing, and Premium Editing. The latter includes a variety of author support services which are especially attractive to ESL authors, including help with journal selection, language tips, and 365 days of free re-editing.

Established in 2002, CACTUS has been providing English-language editing, author support, transcription, and translation services to the global scientific and academic community, including publishers, journals, universities, academic societies, and other scholarly institutions. CACTUS is also engaged in conducting regular educational outreach initiatives such as workshops. Through Editage, CACTUS offers a variety of publication support packages designed to guide authors through each step of the publication process. In addition, it serves the STM publishing community with pre-press and end-to-end journal production services.

CACTUS processes and systems are ISO-9001:2008-certified to guarantee high-quality services and complete customer satisfaction. Its security management systems are ISO/IEC 27001:2005-certified to ensure the safety and confidentiality of all client information.
