Choose your service carefully
Different services come with different benefits. For example, while our Advanced Editing Service corrects all aspects of language, only our Premium Editing Service checks and corrects logic, flow, structure, and presentation. Hence, we recommend that you choose the service that best suits your needs. If you are unsure about the best service for you, please ask our Client Servicing team at to make a recommendation based on your requirements.
Address our editor’s comments
After receiving the completed assignment, address all issues pointed out by the editor. If you are unsure about any comment or change made by the editor, please write to us with your questions at or use the Submit Questions feature in your EditageOnlineTM account.
Get new changes checked by Editage
If you reject any of the editor’s changes or feel the need to make further changes, please have these changes re-checked by us. Minor changes are checked for free under our Client Questions service. For extensive changes, we recommend that you use our Multiple-Round Editing (MRE) services. MRE is available for free under the Premium Editing Service and at a discounted rate under the Advanced Editing Service.
Submit an editing certificate to
While evaluating papers written by non-native speakers of English, reviewers and editors of international journals tend to include a standard recommendation, asking the author to get the language checked by a native speaker. To avoid this, it is best to submit a certificate of editing to the journal along with your initial submission.
