Getting your research published is a big deal. It’s really the first accomplishment that establishes you as a researcher in your field. However, getting to that point takes a lot of work. And, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help along the way. In order to make a good first impression on journal reviewers and editors, many researchers send their manuscript to a scientific thesis editing service. It is a researcher’s hope that doing so will increase their chances of publication. However, choosing the best scientific thesis editing service can be a bit of a challenge. How do you know which service will give you what you need to get published? This blog covers a few things that you should look for when searching for the perfect document editing service.
Is your document being edited for content, grammar, or both?
Many scientific thesis editing services only edit your document for technical errors. Or, they require you to choose which level of editing you want, and then you pay more as you progress higher. Having these rigid standards can leave your document with several gaps. If you acquire document editing services, you should be sure that your service is editing all aspects of your manuscript. If you’re serious about being published, you need a second set of eyes on both grammar and content. At OB-STATS, one of our experts will edit for content and the other will edit for grammar. Dr. David Howard is a practicing medical doctor, a phD, as well as an experienced researcher and reviewer of several high impact journals. Jasmine Hankey is holds a Master’s degree in English Literature as well as a Bachelor’s degree in technical and professional writing. She will edit your scientific manuscript for grammar, language, syntax, and any other technical errors. Remember, your manuscript is important, so be sure to ask questions and find out what you’re getting ahead of time.
Does the service consist of a huge team of editors?
While sending your manuscript to an editing service with hundreds of editors may seem enticing, it is actually a bit risky. Many of these big business editing services have one goal: to pump out as many edited manuscripts as possible and keep the money rolling in. With a big business such as this, there is not often a personal connection that is formed between the editor and the researcher. In our opinion, the editor(s) has to be as invested in the project as the researcher is. Also, how qualified is your editor? What are they qualified to do? Will there only be one pair of eyes on your document? At OB-STATS, we are very transparent with our customers about what they are receiving and who will be editing their document. There are no surprises along the way, just qualified editors giving expert advice.
Price and turnaround time
Be sure to know exactly what price you are paying for the editing service, and know what you are getting for that price. At OB-STATS, we charge a flat rate of $200 for a standard 30 page manuscript. We believe in being reasonable with our customers, because we have a genuine passion for helping students with research. Also, we want our customers to be happy with their finished product.
