Frontiers partners with Editage to offer manuscript preparation services to submitting authors
(November 30, 2017; Lausanne, Switzerland) - Frontiers, a leading open-access publisher, is partnering with Editage to offer specialized manuscript preparation services to its research community. Authors submitting manuscripts to any of Frontiers’ 60+ journals can now access specially priced and subject-relevant editing, translation and review support from Editage’s highly qualified and experienced publication experts.
The partnership aims to help authors convey precise research details and nuanced conclusions in clear, scientific English -- and so speed up the article review process and help increase the impact of published articles among a global, interdisciplinary audience.
Nikesh Gosalia, Director, Academic and Publisher Relations, Editage explained the collaboration by saying, “Open-access peer-reviewed journals are the future of academic publishing. We are proud to collaborate with Frontiers and make our services available to their authors.”
Marie Soulière, Senior Manager for Peer Review Operations, Quality and Ethics, Frontiers, also expressed her enthusiasm, “We are very pleased about this collaboration. English is not the native language for many scientists and researchers that publish with us worldwide, so we expect that Editage’s subject-area experts will provide a particularly valuable service for these authors.”
Frontiers requires submitted manuscripts to meet international English language standards to be considered for publication in its journals – which lead in citations in their fields and rank in the top Impact Factor percentiles. Editage has supported the open access movement since its inception. Partnering with the world’s fastest-growing open-access publisher is a very good move for the author services company.
