Editing Services

At SETS, we provide editing services to Indian authors from the fields of science, medicine, and humanities in order to assist the publication of their research papers. One of the main reasons that journals, particularly international journals, reject research papers is poor English; this is where come in: we offer efficient English language editing services (particularly journal paper editing).

Our strength lies in our editing team, comprising editors who are highly qualified subject matter experts with experience in journal paper editing. Thus far, we have edited more than 1.5 million words from various domains.
Our editors are well-versed with the nuances of editing various manuscripts, be it journal papers (e.g., original research papers, review articles), theses, essays, abstracts, or even cover letters; they ensure that the authors’ meaning is accurately conveyed, thereby eliminating any possible hurdles prior to the peer review and publication processes. Specifically, our editors revise manuscripts for English spelling and grammar, while ensuring clarity, conciseness, and consistency as well as correct sentence structure, word choice, and idiomatic expression, all with a particular focus on the authors’ intended meaning. If required, they also check whether a manuscript meets the requirements of the target journal (domestic or international journals), publisher, or other style guidelines (e.g., AMA, ACS, and APA).
Thus, our English editing service ensures that your document complies with not only general English language rules but also the desired style.

What we do in the Editing stage

The native editor modifies your paper, paying special attention to sentences that have a non-native expression. He will especially look for overuse of the passive voice, word choice that more accurately reflects meaning, redundancy, incorrect pronouns, improper tense, subject-verb disagreement, and other writing errors.

Challenges in Editing:

When the editor is rewriting sentences, he may change the meaning of a sentence.

Solutions implemented to resolve the challenges:
While editing, the editor will add comments in the margins of the paper asking the author to check the revision made.
