Author Services for SAF Authors

Before submitting a manuscript some authors may wish to have it edited for correct use of English. Getting a manuscript reviewed by a professional editor can help authors identify and address issues with the content and/or language of their paper, thereby assisting journal editors and reviewers to fully understand the content of the manuscript. Authors may also benefit from an expert technical review of their manuscript before submission. Even though editing or a technical review does not guarantee acceptance by a journal, it plays a critical role in elevating the overall quality of a manuscript and improving chances of a favorable response from the journal.

Editage provides English-language editing and manuscript review services to help authors prepare publication-ready manuscripts. The editing team at Editage has the best experts from across academia and the industry, having extensive experience in editing and publishing in high-impact journals. In addition to language editing services, Editage also offers SAF authors other publication support services such as translation, artwork preparation, and checking for plagiarism. All Editage services are available to SAF authors at a 15% discount. For more details about Editage services, visit the information page on our website.
