THE BEST-FIT EDITOR IS PICKED BASED ON THE SUBJECT OF THE PAPER AND LANGUAGE PREFERENCE
To ensure your manuscript is handled by the right person, we assign it to the most suitable editor – an expert in the subject area who is also familiar with the preferred language.
THE EDITOR CHECKS THE DOCUMENT FOR GRAMMAR AND CONSISTENCY
The editor checks your document for grammatical and technical errors, as well as inconsistencies, so that your paper is perfect in every way.
THE EDITED PAPER IS RE-CHECKED BY A SENIOR EDITOR
To make sure your paper is error-free, a senior editor checks the edited document as a second layer of quality assurance, using the unique-to-AA quality-checking method – quantized targets and quality assurance (QTQA).
IN CASE OF REVISIONS BY THE AUTHOR OR JOURNAL REVIEWER, THE PAPER IS RE-EDITED
Our editors are also very supportive. In case you want your paper to be re-edited because of revisions or journal review, we do it as a free service.
Project status or updates can be tracked in real time. Furthermore, authors have up to 6 months for revision of the same journal title.
