Submitting a research paper with insufficient English to a scientific journal can lead to rejection, even if the quality of the science is excellent. At XpertScientific, we provide professional English language editing and proofreading services to help non-native English speakers overcome these language barriers, assisting them with their scientific research documents, including research papers, theses and dissertations, presentations, grant proposals, conference abstracts, CVs, etc. We understand that every manuscript is unique and may require a different level of editing. Therefore, we work with you to determine which package is the most suitable for your manuscript's needs.
Our team of expert editors has extensive experience in editing scientific manuscripts and has helped many researchers with the publication of their work in high-impact journals. We match your paper with a specialist subject editor who will not only ensure that the manuscript is free of orthographic and grammatical errors but will also ensure that the text is clear, unambiguous, and has the appropriate academic tone. All of our language editors are native English speakers with PhD and/or MD degrees from highly regarded universities, and have extensive experience in writing, editing, and reviewing scientific and technical documents. We cover a wide range of disciplines from the natural, life, (bio)medical, social, engineering, and environmental sciences.

We offer different editing packages

The Standard Editing package is intended for manuscripts that already have a relatively good level of English and only require a limited number of corrections without any major rewrites or text re-organization. If your paper requires many and/or more substantial corrections, please choose the Premium Editing package instead. For additional peace of mind (free re-edits for one year) and a more comprehensive assistance (we handle the paper submission and communications with the journal plus the peer review), you can choose our Carefree Package.

Our Quality Guarantee

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.
