English Editing
English is the language most widely used internationally in scientific presentations and academic communications. Unfortunately, English may also become a stumbling block to many non-native English-speaking researchers preventing them from presenting their important scientific achievements optimally.
We are committed to providing researchers with first-class professional language editing services. Each manuscript is edited by two experienced professionals. One of these language editors is always a native English speaker (generally from Britain, America or Canada) with a PhD degree in a related area. He/she also has a track record in academic publishing and more than five years’ experience of language editing. The language editor performs in-depth editing and correction on the manuscript. The other language editor is a former senior journal editor with considerable experience of operating SCI-indexed journals. He/she carries out a rigorous check on the editing, ensuring that it substantively meets the language standard required by the target journal. This editor also provides authors with one-to-one editorial assistance throughout the submission and revision process. This first-hand advice from SCI journal editors is intended to cater to your needs in terms of your current and future manuscript preparation and publication.
The language editors check the following aspects of the text, tables/figures and their legends:
Grammar, spelling and punctuation;
Clarity and consistency;
Logical relations between sentences, paragraphs or sections;
Accuracy of the title, headings, legends and content;
Terminology, measurement units, symbols and variables;
Other problems encountered while editing.
If language editors are uncertain about the original meaning of any sentences, they will leave questions and comments in the manuscript to await the author’s confirmation. After receiving the author’s confirmation, language editors will edit these parts of the manuscript at no extra charge. Communication between the language editor and author is coordinated by the second editor.
Once the manuscript is ready for submission, a certificate of editing will be provided to the author, demonstrating that the manuscript has been edited by a qualified editor at Pivot Sciedit.
All of our editors have signed a confidentiality agreement and strictly adhere to the highest standards of editorial ethics. No data from manuscripts or personal information of the authors will be revealed to any third party.
If, after editing by Pivot Sciedit, a manuscript is rejected by a journal due to shortcomings with the English language of the text, the manuscript will be re-edited free of charge until the author is satisfied (NB. this only applies to manuscripts without any changes after our editing).
