Below we have listed some commonly asked questions. In case you have any other question/query, do write to us at We will get back to you at the earliest.

QIn case there is a submission fee involved, is that included in the fee for the Manuscript Submission Assistant service?

ANo, such fees are not included in the fee for Manuscript Submission Assistant service. You will be guided through the payment page of the journal website by your project manager, where you can pay the fee easily. In case you want us to pay these fee on your behalf, you’ll need to first pay the journal fee (plus a convenience fees of 20%) to us. We will then make the payment on your behalf and issue you a payment invoice.

QCan I make changes to the paper after submitting it to the journal?

ANo, once the paper has been submitted, it cannot be replaced with a revised version. However, upon acceptance the journal generally provides a proof copy of the manuscript at which time the changes are allowed.

QDo you check format for artwork under this service?

ANo, we do not format the artwork. In case you need formatting of artwork, you may mention so while confirming your order. We will send you a separate quote for the same.

QAfter using your submission service, if the journal returns my paper due to incomplete formatting, does it mean my paper has been rejected?

AIf for any reason the journal returns your paper due to incomplete formatting, it does not imply that the paper has been rejected. This is probably because journals sometimes do not mention all their author guidelines on the website. Papers that have been returned due to formatting issues can be resubmitted to the journal after resolving the issues. In such cases, we will reformat and resubmit your paper to the journal at no additional charge.

QDo you do word count reduction to meet journal guidelines under this service?

ANo, we do not do word count reduction under this service. We will inform you about any such criterion not met, and will guide you to meet the requirements.

QDo you provide after sales service? What if I have some queries/doubts?

AYes, we do provide comprehensive after sales service. Please contact us with any queries/doubts and we will be happy to help you with the same.

QAs part of journal submission, will you help me with the extra forms such as authorship agreement forms and copyright forms?

AJournals usually ask for all required information through the online submission system. However, certain forms such as author agreement forms and copyright forms require author signatures. In these cases, you are required to complete the forms yourself and fax them to the journal. However, we help you understand the requirements and instruct you how to fill the forms.

QWill you help me reply to the mails that I receive from the journal after the submission is complete?

AYes, if the journal sends you an email, we will frame a response.

QWhy do I need to give you my journal account username and password?

AAs part of Journal Submission, we create an account for you on the journal’s system. Since journals require you (the corresponding author) to submit the paper, we create this account using your details (such as name, email address, etc.). The journal may then email the login details to you. You need to send us these details so that we can operate your account for purposes like submitting your paper to the journal and tracking its progress.

QI asked you to submit my paper to the journal but you informed me that my paper is not ready for submission. What does that mean?

AOur primary goal is to increase your chances of publication. Therefore, before we submit your paper to the journal, we evaluate it to see if it conforms to all the journal’s requirements and whether any changes need to be made. We will inform you that your paper is not ready for submission and recommend that these changes be made before submitting the manuscript. If you can’t make these changes by yourself, we will guide you regarding which service you should choose to solve your problem.

Note: We strongly suggest that ESL (English as a second language) authors have their manuscript edited or proofread before submission. In addition, formatting and artwork guidelines should be followed. Please consider using our services to prepare the manuscript. Journal editors often reject manuscripts for peer review simply because these guidelines are not followed. Our service ensures that the chances of rejection on such grounds are minimized.

I found out first hand that submitting to an international journal is very difficult. They have a lot of instructions and paperwork to be done. I didn’t have that much time and I could not understand some of the requirements. So I took Enago’s help. They submitted my document successfully by completing all formalities themselves. I had a great experience using their service.
