Journal manuscripts

For manuscripts intended for publication, we recommend our advanced, two-editor service. This offers a more precise and in-depth review, as two sets of eyes are better than one.

Please be aware that while our service has helped thousands of authors achieve publication, we cannot guarantee that your paper will meet the English language requirements of your target journal. If your reviewers have suggested that your paper needs comprehensive language revision, you may need to consider a ‘substantive editing service’. This typically involves major rewriting and restructuring (albeit at a cost of three to five times that of a proofreading and editing service).

We do, however, offer a quality proofreading and editing service undertaken by experienced, native English speaking editors. This is suitable for the majority of manuscripts in need of language correction.

16,000+ papers edited
each year

Our team reviews over 16,000 essays each year for students in over 80 countries. All of our editors are native English speakers and hold advanced degrees from leading American and British universities.


We have the expertise and know-how to improve your paper by developing its language, academic tone, and clarity.

“Quality delivered as stated”

“I would like to thank you, George, and the editor for the work you have done on my paper. I am a non-native speaker, so writing for my university in the U.S. is very hard for me. I now feel I can look to you to help me and that is very reassuring.”
Dmitri, University of Glasgow

“Corrections helped me a lot”

“I submitted several papers to Cambridge over the course of my postgraduate studies in bioinformatics. I was always assigned the same editor and they understood my subject well. I believe that the corrections they made helped my grades a lot.”
Phillip, University of California, Irvine

“Truly professional service”

“A truly professional service. Very responsive to all the many questions I had before and after the proofreading. The quality was very good also. Overall, I am satisfied with its service.”
Bryan, Oxford Brookes University

Subject matter expertise

With over 300 editors spanning the full spectrum of academic disciplines, we can pair documents with
subject-matter experts in most instances. We believe there is no substitute for subject-matter expertise.
