A professionally edited and polished scientific or technical document is not only a pleasure to read, but it has a greater impact on readers, and a better chance of gaining a larger audience and a higher number of citations.

For authors who are non-native english speakers, it is even more critical to have a manuscript edited by a professional, native english speaker in order for the paper to even be reviewed by top international journals and other publications. Manuscripts that are linguistically inadequate are not acceptable for submission to reputable publications.

Inadequate language and structure can also be a critical factor in determining the outcome of a funding proposal. Even for a native english speaker, conveying and articulating ideas clearly, concisely, and accurately is challenging.

Our scientific editing services at Scientific Manuscript help authors prepare manuscripts that they can be proud of and that can be submitted to top international journals and publications. We work with authors who are native english speakers as well as those who are not, and we have experience in working with non-native english speakers from many different countries. We prepare manuscripts in US or UK english.

We work with manuscripts covering all scientific and mathematical disciplines, and other technical arenas. Some of the types of projects that we cover are:

  • Research papers
  • Responses to reviewer’s reports
  • Job applications and research statements
  • Research/funding proposals
  • Dissertations
  • Shorter articles and abstracts
  • Technical documents
  • High-end web content

Our principal speciality is a full, deep, and substantive editing service, including multiple rounds with the author if appropriate, with a greater level of personal attention that you will not find with large companies. Large organizations do not in fact allow the author to directly communicate with his/her editor, with all exchanges having to be parsed by an administrative employee. Our rates are extremely competitive compared to larger companies.

Anything less than a full, substantive edit can result in a compromised document that is a superficial patch-up and not something that is of a quality that is worthy of the best scientific publications. On the other hand, if you have a manuscript that is already well-polished, we do offer a straightforward proofreading service. If your manuscript is in a state that is in between needing proofreading and full, substantive editing, you can request a custom quote.

Please go to Services for details about each of the services that we offer.

Please contact us (e-mail: support “at” if you have any questions, or if you would like to send a request for service. We look forward to working with you.
