For an exact price quote, please click here.
- How is the word count of my manuscript calculated?
When determining the word count of any document, we consider the entire text, including tables, references, and mathematical formulae. However, if you would like us to exclude certain sections of the document, the word count of those sections will not be considered. Please note that any files attached for reference are not considered in the word count.
- Can I change the type of editing service after submission?
A request for a change in the type of editing service will be accommodated if we have not yet begun work on your document. Please contact us if you would like to change the type of editing service.
- Do you edit documents in PDF file format?
Yes, we do. We indicate our changes in the PDF file by using a PDF editing software that allows authors to identify the changes in the document. Editing for PDF documents costs 15% more than the normal service fees.
- Do you edit documents in LaTeX and TeX formats?
Yes, we deliver the final edited document as a TeX file. Accompanying the edited LaTeX document is a Word document that shows the changes we have made to the text and includes comments and suggestions by the editor. Please note that we do not accept LyX files for editing. The fee for editing a TeX document is 15% more than the normal editing fee.
- Will you format my manuscript according to the journal’s instructions for authors?

If you have a question for your editor, you can login to the online account and use the Submit Question option. We normally answer within 1 working day. However, a member of our client servicing team will confirm the delivery schedule with you as it is determined by the nature and number of questions.
- I have made some changes to my paper after you edited it. Is the Quality Guarantee still valid?
If you have made significant changes to your paper after we have edited it (e.g., you have introduced new content or rejected our changes), the Quality Guarantee may not be fully applicable.
If you are unsure about whether you can use the Quality Guarantee, email us and we will check the document and provide you with an accurate assessment.
