In addition to standard editing, we offer a number of other services that many scientists find helpful for saving time and improving their submissions and applications. Below is a list of our other services that can be added to any standard editing order.
Rush Service (2-3 days) = 20% fee*
Our standard rate provides our clients with a dramatically improved, polished document within 5-7 days. If you need your documents returned sooner, we accept rush orders for documents/projects containing <10,000 words. Rush orders are returned in 2-3 days. For this service, a fee equivalent to 20% of the total cost of the project if it were submitted as a standard order is required.
*Documents >10,000 words are not eligible for rush service without prior arrangements.
Journal Formatting = hourly rate, additional time as needed
There is no additional set fee for journal formatting. The charges incurred are based on the additional time it takes to finish preparing your document for a specific target journal. Typically, journal formatting requires no more than one additional hour of time and effort for our editors.
Word Count Reduction = hourly rate, additional time as needed
There are no additional set fees for basic or significant word count reductions. The charges incurred are based on the additional time it takes to complete your project.
Standard editing includes the elimination of excess words and a basic word count reduction (removal of <100 words/document).
Significant word count reductions (>100 words/document or minimizing page counts) often require much more time and effort to restructure and reword documents such that they convey the intended message in a concise manner. Additionally, each document’s needs are different. As such, the additional time/cost needed for significant reductions are determined on an individual case basis.
Cover Letter Composition = $100 USD flat fee
Regardless of the subject matter or the time it takes to prepare the document, we can create a compelling cover letter customized for your manuscript using our notoriously successful template for a minimal fee of $100 USD.
