'Two Editor' System

"Two-Editor" System & Native English-speaking Editors

Under our "Two-Editor" system, applications are reviewed by two highly skilled editors to ensure language consistency and accuracy. After a thorough edit by a PhD-qualified subject-area specialist, a second editor polishes and refines your paper to remove any existing ambiguities. Our editors are all native English speakers (from US, UK, Australia, and Canada) and familiar with the issues that occur with ESL writing.

English Editing by Subject Experts

Specialized Subject-area Matching

Every application submitted to us is matched to an editor with highly specialized subject-area expertise. For example, a paper in Neurology will be edited by an editor who is an MD in Neurology, not by a specialist in Medical Sciences. This technical competency enables us to optimize the content as well as the language and pay due attention to the most subtle intricacies.
