Wichtig Publishing partners with Editage to offer editorial support to physicians and medical researchers
(May 8, 2017; Philadelphia, U.S.) Wichtig Publishing and Editage announced the launch of Wichtig author support services today. Authors submitting to Wichtig’s journals will now have access to Editage’s team of medical and scientific editors. Most authors who publish their work in Wichtig’s highly specialized journals are busy physicians and medical researchers. In addition to saving time and effort, Wichtig author support services will help researchers submit a publication-ready manuscript so that peer reviewers and journal editors can concentrate on the science of their study.
Giulio Zuanetti, CEO and General Manager, Wichtig Publishing, expressed his optimism about the partnership by stating, “Our journals attract specialized medical articles that are typically authored by practicing doctors or research fellows. Our peer reviewers are also practicing experts with time constraints. We are very pleased that the access to Editage’s medical communication experts will save time and effort for our authors and reviewers.” Nikesh Gosalia, Director, Academic and Publisher Relations, Editage also expressed his enthusiasm about this new partnership, “It is easier for peer reviewers to evaluate the science of a study if the manuscript is free of language or formatting errors. We are delighted that our scientific editors will help accelerate the author’s publication journey and make the review process more efficient for journals.”
