Our professional document editing service ensures that only an expert document editor works on your document. Our document editors are subject-matter experts with many years of experience in research and scientific editing. What’s more, you can consult these experts even after the edit and utilize the Client Questions service to clarify any doubts that you might have. Authors can also choose an editor of their choice at a premium and subject to availability.

All our manuscript editors and writers go through the Basic Editor Training (BET) program which comprises 5 standard modules and various customized programs. Our writers receive specific training in ICH–GCP, CONSORT, and ICMJE guidelines. In addition, all our editors also receive intensive English language training. They attend external training programs and workshops that offer updates on grammar, punctuation, and style for American and British English.
There is no substitute for subject-matter expertise. That’s why we ensure that every document is edited by an expert with a high level of technical competency in the relevant field of study. Here’s how we achieve this:
1. The Center of Excellence model
We follow a best-practice-based editing setup—manuscripts are assigned to editors who, depending on their experience and qualifications, work in one of 20 editing Centers of Excellence (CoEs). CoEs are highly specialized subject-area teams with professional expertise in one or a few closely related academic disciplines. The CoE team structure is based on a 2-round editing model that optimizes subject-area and language expertise and delivers superior editing output.
2. Experienced, technically proficient editors
The editors within each CoE have a high level of technical competency in that specific field of study and an incisive understanding of the finer nuances of your subject, relevant writing conventions, terminology, etc. In addition, they research extensively before making any drastic subject-related changes in your document.
3. Clear, change-tracking process
For MS Word documents, all changes are visible through the Track Changes feature, while for PDF and other file formats, our editors explain important changes in a separate word file. This system allows you to review each change made by us.

We place a lot of emphasis on subject-area expertise. Our editorial team includes physicians, PhDs, MDs, postgraduates, engineers, and even journal peer reviewers. Over 60% of our manuscript editors come from a research background. Depending on their academic qualifications and professional experience, our editors work within one of 20 editing Centers of Excellence (CoEs). The editors within each CoE have a high level of technical competency in that specific field of study and an incisive understanding of the finer nuances of your subject, relevant writing conventions, terminology, etc. Learn more about the CoE model or review our editors’ profiles.

We can edit as per two English language styles – American English and British English. You can choose your preferred language style in the online submission form.
Yes, we do edit documents in Latex and Tex file formats. After editing, we deliver the final document as a Tex File. In addition, we send a word document that shows the changes we have made to the text and contains the editor’s comments and suggestions. Please note that we do not accept LyX files for editing.
We do not accept software-translated documents for editing. We request you to have your document translated by a professional before sending it to us for editing. You may alternatively opt for Academia’s translation services. All Academia Editing services are mentioned on our website; you may select the one you wish for in your assignment’s submission form.
At Academia Editing we respect the confidentiality of research. All our employees are sensitized to the highly confidential nature of documents they handle and are required to sign confidentiality agreements that are indefinitely binding. If required, Academia Editing will also sign confidentiality agreements with you before we embark on any professional relationship. Additionally, our data security processes have been ISO 9001:2008 certified. Since all documents submitted are managed through a secure Online Job Management System, only the editor working on your job and your client manager has access to your information.
Several authors ask if they can acknowledge Academia’s editorial support in their manuscript or paper. According to prominent publication guidelines such as the ICMJE guidelines on authorship, editing or writing support should be acknowledged in the paper. Such acknowledgments also serve to assure journal editors/reviewers that the English has been thoroughly reviewed, and meets the required standards for publication.
If you would like to acknowledge our editorial support for your paper, you can do so by simply including the following sentence in the Acknowledgments section: We would like to thank Academia Editing for editing and reviewing this manuscript for English language

The Academia Editing Certificate is a PDF certificate that you can provide to the journal when you submit your manuscript. This certificate confirms that your manuscript was edited by a native English speaker and is ready for journal submission, assuming all the changes we proposed are incorporated into the manuscript. It allows journal editors to feel confident that the English language in your manuscript has been reviewed and verified.

A certificate of editing will be given to you with your edited paper

Do you offer help to rewrite and paraphrase the plagiarized text in my manuscript?

Through the plagiarism check service, Academia Editing helps you identify the sentences that overlap with previously published works. We also suggest measures that can help you reduce the overlap. However, these measures will have to be applied by the author. Academic publishing guidelines and standards require authors to interpret references in their own words and use direct quotes sparingly. In compliance with academic guidelines, Academia Editing can only guide authors in this regard. We will be unable to conduct the actual paraphrasing on behalf of the author.
