We edit English research manuscripts by Indian authors to aid their publication in top international journals!

What is our editing method? How was it developed?

At Scholarly Editing and Translation Services Pvt. Ltd. (SETS), our editors use a paper editing method, EditingIndia.com Editing Method, developed in house after studying the reasons for rejection of Indian research papers by international journals and after analyzing the existing journal papers by Indian authors published in those journals. The errors made by Indian authors are unique, and our editors have developed the ability to decode them. Furthermore, they are in a constant process of modifying and improving this editing method on the basis of the feedback received from researchers from top universities and research institutes across India (during our speeches and workshops) and that received for the over 10,300 of research papers and other documents (essays, abstracts, etc.) edited by us thus far.

What is the EditingIndia.com Editing Method?
The EditingIndia.com Editing Method focuses only on research and only on Indian English. Our editors interact with authors by adding comments in their edited papers. This valuable ongoing feedback system enables us to constantly improve our editing method.
In brief, one of our academic editors, with knowledge of the domain style and expertise in decoding Indian English, is assigned to edit a research paper. Furthermore, our method involves more than English correction; the editor offers clearer alternative word choice suggestions, rewrites when necessary, and provides educational comments to engage the author in the process by commenting on unclear passages and improper flow, and in some cases, by explaining the reasons for our changes. Some comments may encourage the author to change unclear sentences and return the paper for a quick re-edit at no additional charges.

We begin through the careful selection, training, and review of editors
Our senior editing team has a combined 9-year experience in journal paper editing. We are in a continuous process of increasing the size and diversity of our workforce by recruiting editors with postgraduate and PhD degrees in various domains. Before employment, our editors are required to pass our editing tests and qualify our interview. They are required to follow our in-house editing style guides, domain-specific style guides, and feedback from our senior editors. They are continuously trained through our rigorous peer review process to maintain our standards and quality.

The EditingIndia.com Editing Method uses English editing style guides, domain manuals, lists of English errors, and editor peer review
Our editing team maintains style manuals on general academic editing techniques and academic domain manuals; these manuals are constantly updated with the changing conventions of each domain and then shared with our domain-specific editors. We also maintain lists of common Indian writing errors in over 50 categories with their corrections as an ongoing reference for our team. After completion, we also provide an English editing certificate, which can be included during the journal paper submission process.
