Our editors are all native English speakers who hold PhDs or Master’s degrees from top universities such as Harvard, MIT and Oxford. They are all experts in their respective academic fields with an average of 19.4 years’ experience in editing. Most of them are published authors and peer reviewers in their own right as well as members of some of the world’s best editor societies, such as BELS and CSE.
Because we care about the quality and integrity of your work, under no circumstances do we ever work with student or novice editors. Your manuscript will always be edited by an editor with in-depth expertise in your manuscript’s subject area.

We only have Native English editors
Enago exclusively recruits native English editors. This ensures fluency and readability of your paper, while eliminating any ambiguities. It also provides the intended results with the fastest possible turnaround as native editors are familiar with the problems of ESL writing.
Maintaining the highest editing standards
At Enago, we have a rigorous editor recruitment procedure and strict quality benchmarks. To become an Enago editor we test each person extensively on their subject knowledge, language, style, and proofreading skills.
In order to prove they have what it takes, each editor must:
- Pass 3 rounds of evaluation: subject expertise, language skills, and editing ability
- Undergo a 2-month training and evaluation program and will only be accepted if their performance is satisfactory (above 95% quality score)
- Sign non-disclosure agreements to protect the confidentiality of clients' documents
In addition to this, we also provide ongoing, monthly feedback to our editors to make sure they’re continually improving. This feedback is based on the work they do, which we evaluate through a unique scoring system.

Enago editors are published authors
Our editors understand what it takes to meet journal requirements. In addition to working with Enago, they are also published authors in their own right, with papers appearing in prestigious journals like Nature, Cell, and Science. They have also served as peer reviewers on the editorial boards of various journals and technical societies.
In many cases, the editors working on your manuscripts have had several of their papers already published in the same journal. So you can be confident your manuscript will meet all your chosen journal’s guidelines.
Members of renowned editorial societies
Most of our Editors are members of several esteemed editorial societies. These include Council of Science Editors (CSE), European Association of Science Editors (EASE), American Medical Writers Association (AMWA), European Medical Writers Association (EMWA), and Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS). They also undergo regular training to stay abreast with the latest research trends, terminology, and technology.
