Frequently Asked Questions

What is the background of your Scientific Editors and Quality Assurance reviewers

What is the difference between Enago’s Copyediting, Substantive Editing, and Top Impact Scientific Editing services?

We provide three editing services to suit different author expectations:

  • Copyediting – Manuscripts are put through a meticulous language check to correct all language, grammar, and punctuation errors. It is suitable for manusripts that only requires a final language editing.
  • Substantive Editing – On top of copyediting, this service improves the logical, structural, and presentation aspects of your manuscript. It is recommended for authors seeking to publish their research on SCI journals.
  • Top Impact Scientific Editing – This service is designed to meet the requirements of high IF journals. It comprises developmental editing by editors who have with journals such as Nature,* NEJM,* and Lancet;*a mock peer review, plagiarism check, and an optional Quality Assurance Check.

Do you guarantee successful acceptance of my manuscript to my target journal?
