How do I submit my documents for English science editing?

We can accept Microsoft Word files for the main text, tables and legends.  Either .doc or .docx file types are acceptable.  Please provide the figures if possible, preferably as Microsoft Word, Powerpoint or PDF files, so the editor can fully understand your results and make sure the text matches your figures.

How long will the editing take?

Your document will be returned by email within seven days if you choose regular turnaround, and three days if you choose express turnaround.  Our turnaround times include weekends.  For example, if you submit your document for three day turnaround editing on Friday at 2 pm, it will be returned on Monday before 2 pm.  We ask that you check your email regularly to avoid delays, in case we need to ask you a question about the document.
