Language quality and the peer-reviewed journal article

How are language and journal article publishing related? Here’s how: The competition to publish articles in international peer-reviewed journals is more intensive than ever before. And to cope with the increasing number of submissions, journals employ stringent submission and peer review processes. In this scenario, the quality of language in your journal article is a critical factor—while your research may be of importance, poor English could result in initial rejection and publication delays.

How can editing help you successfully publish a journal article?

Peer reviewers will be looking out for innovative research that is well-structured, well-written, and well-formatted. Having edited over 280,000 journal articles across 515 disciplines and thousands of journals, our editors know what it takes to successfully publish a journal article in a peer-reviewed journal. By ensuring that your paper is formatted correctly and that the language matches the journal’s standards, they can help you maximize your chances of getting published.
