Scientific Review Report


A Scientific Review Report is created by peer reviewers for top journals like Nature, premium editors with 20+ years of experience, and our managing editors.

Their feedback shortens the time a journal takes to evaluate your paper and increases your chances of acceptance in the high-impact journals.

Editing certificate

At the time of manuscript submission, many international journals require an editing certificate from non-English-native authors. In order to enable a seamless submission journey, we issue such certificates for all manuscripts that we edit

The layout and format of your manuscripts need to be consistent with the submission requirements of your target journal. With their extensive experience with style guides such as the APA, MLA, ACS, AMA, IEEE, and all major publisher and journal guidelines, our experts ensure that your papers are ready for journal submission, down to the last detail

Unconditional Free Re-editing

Even after our initial edit, manuscripts may need to be rewritten based on feedback from peers or journal peer reviewers. Our re-editing services ensure that your manuscript is ready for submission, after as many rounds of collaboration as you would like to have with your expert. This benefit is available within 12 months from the first round of editing of your paper
