Why?Why should I use this service?

Q In case the name and URL of the journal I provide in the request form do not suit my manuscript, will the reviewer suggest me the best suitable journal?

AUnder this service, our reviewers will evaluate your manuscript in detail providing you feedback on quality of language, manuscript content, and quality of research; however, they will not suggest other journals that may suit your manuscript. For selecting a suitable journal for your manuscript, we provide another service: Journal Selection.

QWhat is the difference between editing and peer review services?

AUnder our editing services, our editor will check the language and flow of the paper. The editor will correct the language of the paper, provide suggestions to improve language, and clarify unclear/incomplete sentences.

Under the peer review service, the reviewer will evaluate the content of the study beside the language. The reviewer will highlight areas where the content needs refinement, and will provide suggestions to conduct more studies if needed. The reviewer will not make changes to the text of the manuscript.

QCan I ask questions after I receive the Peer Review Report?

AYes, you can contact us in case you have any question or if you do not agree with any of the reviewers’ comments for your manuscript.

QIf the Pre-Submission Peer Review Report says my manuscript is suitable to be published in the journal, will you guarantee publication?

APublication of the manuscript depends on number of factors and the acceptance/rejection decision lies with the journal. Journals receive several quality papers and they have to choose the best among these papers; hence, only few of them get published even when they have no major issues.

QWill my manuscript be rated on the scale of 1-10 or how?

ARating the manuscript on a numerical scale will not give you a clear picture of the content and the areas of improvement of the manuscript. Our experts will provide you feedback and tell you about the improvement areas the way real reviewers of the journal do. Such feedback will help you revise your manuscript, increasing the chances of acceptance..

QWill the reviewers also provide references from where I can check and revise the manuscript?

ANo, under this service, the reviewers will only provide comments for improving the manuscript content; they will not provide you with additional references.

QI do not agree with your reviewer’s comments. What do I do now?

ANo author is ever in full agreement with the reviewers of their paper. While you do not have to respond to each reviewer’s comment as you would when peer reviewed by a journal, you are welcome to further question our reviewer to understand his or her comments. If you do not agree with a comment, you can send us clarifications and/or further questions, and our reviewer will address them.

QDo your peer reviewers make any changes to the manuscript under this service?

AWe do not make any changes to the text. Our expert reviewer inserts comments in the manuscript and prepares a report to identify issues and provide suggestions. Since such changes involve revisions in content, the changes can only be made by you.

QDo you guarantee publication if you review my paper?

APublication is dependent on a variety of factors. An article may be rejected because it does not match the journal’s scope or may not be of sufficient interest to its readers. Moreover, publication depends largely on the quality and importance of your research. Therefore, we cannot guarantee publication. However, as part of our service, we evaluate such factors for you and help you maximize your chances of publication.

QDo you issue certificate of editing under this service?

ASince in this service, we do not edit your manuscript, we do not issue a certificate of editing. Certificate of editing is issued for our Normal and Advance Editing Services.

QComments from multiple reviewers are contradicting? Why is that so? What do I do?

AThe peer review process at journals is extremely subjective—peer reviewers are experts who evaluate manuscripts based on their knowledge and expertise. Because this process is subjective, journals usually have a minimum of two peer reviewers evaluate the same manuscript. And it is not uncommon for two peer reviewers to give conflicting opinions on the same manuscript.

The same principle applies to our expert reviewers and specialists who review your manuscript. Even though they are experts, their views—like those of a journal’s peer reviewers—are subjective. This is why even after our reviewers review your manuscript; you may receive comments from our reviewers that are not in 100% agreement with each other.

To tackle contradiction, in this situation, we encourage you to use your best judgment. Review all of the reviewer’s comments and then make a decision on how best to proceed from there.

I feel it is very important to take outsider opinion and critical comments to make your manuscript rejection resistant. Hence, I chose the peer-review service offered by them which was excellent. I was surprised by the number and quality of comments that I received. Although I did take some time to incorporate all the suggestions, it was well worth the time! Thanks.

I was initially scared after I received the peer review report. There were a lot of changes suggested. It felt as if I might have to rewrite a lot. But once I actually made the changes, the result was brilliant. It actually got published in my intended journal!

I am very impressed with Enago’s report. All at one place, it gave a lot of insights in improving my paper. Also, one more thing that was great about it was that it was written in simple English so I could understand it very well and I could make most changes suggested.
