How long will it take to edit my document?

What do you charge for second or further rounds of editing?

When we edit your paper a second or further time after preliminary submission to a journal the quote is based on the word count and the amount of editing work required, and is thus generally less than the original price.

Should I select Standard Editing or Premium Editing

Standard Editing is by far our most requested service, but if you’d like to engage more with the editing team, commenting on their work and having them implement further changes according to your feedback, then Premium Editing may benefit you.

Can you edit LaTeX documents?

Our preferred method is to convert Latex files to Word documents that can then be edited with the changes tracked. We don’t touch any of the Latex code,so you can copy the text back into your Latex editor afterwards. Of course, if you’d prefer we can also work on the hard copy printed PDF.

Can you reduce the word count of my document?

It maybe possible to reduce the word count a little within the scope of Standard Editing. An extra cost is likely for larger reductions.

Can you format my paper for me?

Yes, we can format papers in line with APA and Chicago, or any specific journal guidelines if you can send us a link.

How do you maintain quality?

All of our editing involves two read-throughs by the initial editor and then a final check by an experienced senior editor who provides feedback, if necessary.

What if my paper is rejected?

Our guarantee is that if you don’t alter a manuscript that we’ve edited and it is rejected by a journal on purely English language grounds, we will offer to re-edit it free of charge.

Why is your quote different to the price shown on the Approximate Cost Calculator on your website?

Do I need to pay in advance?

Most full-time faculty members who supply all contact details are able to pay for regular projects on completion.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept cash, cheques, bank transfers and payment by credit card and PayPal. We also receive payment directly from many university finance offices, if you are able to pass on our invoice.

What currencies do you accept?

Do you offer discounts?

We offer discounts for large-volume work and in other circumstances, which you can read about at our Loyalty Schemes + Discounts page.

I have some research budget to use, but my paper is not ready for editing. Can I pay in advance?

Yes, we can credit your account to offset against future editing.

How should I send my document to you?

Why do I not need to open an account with you?

To make it easier for you, we’ve developed a sophisticated system based around your email address(es), so there is no need to create an account with us. Simply send your document to, and we’ll take care of the rest!

I want a native English editor. Can you guarantee this?

Our editors are all native English speakers, educated mainly to the postgraduate level, most from top-ranking research universities.

What days are you open?

We are open all year except 25 December, 1 January and the first day of Chinese New Year.
