In academic publishing, manuscripts with insufficient English language proficiency are often rejected by journals, even if the scientific content is of high quality. XpertScientific offers a professional English language editing and correction service to help non-native English speakers overcome language barriers and submit articles with excellent English language proficiency. Our experienced editors routinely correct and edit scientific articles, grant proposals, dissertations, theses, presentations, conference abstracts, CVs, etc. and we have helped many researchers publish their work in high-impact journals. Each manuscript is matched with a specialist subject editor who ensures that the edited manuscript is free of orthographic and grammatical errors while also maintaining clarity, unambiguity, and an appropriate academic tone. Our scientific editors are all 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. We offer our services across various disciplines from the natural, life, (bio)medical, social, engineering, and environmental sciences.
What is it for?
The Premium Editing package is specifically designed for manuscripts that require a more extensive level of editing, including a greater number of corrections, as well as more substantial rewrites and text re-organization. With this package, our editors will not only edit what absolutely needs to be corrected in terms of grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, but also reword particularly awkward or convoluted sentences or reduce verbosity in order to improve overall readability and clarity. In addition, they can reduce the word count if your manuscript is above the limit of your target journal or funding agency. Overall, the manuscript will undergo a more thorough review and revision than with our Standard Package and our editors will work closely with you to ensure that your writing is polished and ready for publication.
For instance, an average Premium Edit of a 5,000-word research paper typically involves between 800 and 1,600 edits, i.e., corrections, insertions, deletions, and comments. Furthermore, our editors will provide detailed feedback on your manuscript's structure, organization, and coherence and make suggestions on how to further improve the clarity and readability of your writing. With our Premium editing package, you can be confident that your manuscript will be transformed into a clear, concise, and compelling piece of scientific writing.
What are the alternatives?
If your manuscript requires less intense editing, with fewer corrections and no substantial rewrites or text re-organization, our Standard Editing package may be a better option for you. If you are looking for a more comprehensive service that goes beyond mere editing and also provides support during the peer review process, you may find that our Carefree Package is just right for you.

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.
