The Carefree Package

Submitting a manuscript to a scientific journal can be a daunting process. In addition to the time and effort required to produce a high-quality manuscript, there are a number of other factors that can affect your chances of success, such as choosing the right journal, following author guidelines, drafting a compelling cover letter, and addressing reviewer comments. At the same time, the review process can be time-consuming and stressful, requiring careful attention to detail and a deep understanding of the world of academic publishing.
To help researchers navigate this complex process, we offer a comprehensive services package specifically designed to support authors at every stage of the publication journey. Whether you need assistance with editing, formatting, submission, or peer review, we have the expertise and experience to help you achieve your goals. Our team of experienced editors and scientific writers consists of native English speakers with PhD and/or MD degrees from reputable universities, and they possess extensive experience in writing, editing, and reviewing scientific and technical documents for a wide range of disciplines from the natural, life, (bio)medical, social, engineering, and environmental sciences. We are committed to providing a high-quality service that is tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual client.
What is it for?
The Carefree Package offers the most comprehensive service level for your manuscript. By selecting this package, you can focus on the science and leave all the rest to us. We will not only provide the initial editing of your manuscript, but we will also ensure that it is formatted in accordance with your target journal's author guidelines. In addition, we will submit the manuscript to the journal and manage all communication with the journal editor on your behalf. Moreover, we will be with you throughout the peer review process, providing necessary assistance at each step. Our goal is to help you navigate the submission process as smoothly and efficiently as possible, and to keep you updated throughout the entire process. With our assistance, you can be confident that your manuscript will meet the highest standards of clarity and scientific rigour.
In the event that your manuscript is rejected, we are still here to help. We will re-edit and reformat it to comply with the author guidelines of your new journal if you decide to submit it elsewhere. With the Carefree Package, you can focus on the content of your manuscript, while we take care of everything else. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for your manuscript. With our assistance, you can feel confident that your manuscript will meet the highest standards of quality and professionalism.
Example 1: After our first round of editing we submit your manuscript to your target journal's online portal and it is accepted, subject to some minor revisions. At this point, we'll step in to help. Our team will take care of all language-related issues and may ask for your input (in the form of brief bullet points) regarding how you'd like to address any science-related reviewer comments. We will then use your input to make all necessary changes and formulate the responses to the reviewers and the journal editor. Once this is done, we will re-submit the revised manuscript to the journal.
Example 2: In the event that your manuscript is rejected by your target journal, you may decide to try submitting it to a different journal. If this happens, we can help. We will reformat the manuscript to ensure it meets the author guidelines of the new journal, and draft a new cover letter tailored to the specific requirements of that journal. Once we have completed the necessary revisions, we will upload all the files to the new journal's website and monitor the submission process, providing any necessary support throughout.

Discounts for large documents
Bespoke discounts may be granted for larger documents such as books or theses upon request. Simply send us an email with your word count and subject area and we will let you know.
Our Quality Guarantee
Unlike some of our competition, we neither employ automated AI systems nor undergraduate students from low income countries to proofread your manuscript. All our editors are experienced academics with PhD and/or MD degrees from highly regarded universities who will take the time needed to correct not just simple spelling and grammatical errors, but, more importantly, improve logical flow, awkward phrasing, word choice, and academic tone. These types of corrections are more time consuming and require an editor who not only understands the science but who possesses the necessary experience and abilities to be able to suggest improvements at this level. The many positive client testimonials show that our approach is the right one.
