Rapid Technical Review

Manuscripts get rejected at the peer review stage because of various reasons such as poor structure, a weak argument, or other factors authors may overlook while preparing their manuscripts. The Rapid Technical Review has been designed to closely resemble the peer review process undertaken at major high-impact journals and will maximize your chances of receiving favorable comments from the journal editorial team.

Benefits of Rapid Technical Review:

  • Comprehensive and objective evaluation
    Using an incisive and detailed questionnaire, our experts prepare a manuscript assessment report. The questionnaire our experts use includes questions that cover all aspects of your manuscript, from evaluating the study design to a commentary on the literature review.
  • Specific technical input
    Having published and peer-reviewed papers in major journals, our experts are highly competent and apply their knowledge of the field and their publishing experience to help improve the overall quality of your manuscript, covering key aspects like study design, reporting of methods, literature review, and data analysis.
  • Actionable recommendations that improve your manuscript
    An evaluation is most successful only when it is coupled with relevant suggestions for improvement. Our experts do not stop at reviewing your manuscript critically. For every problem identified, they also recommend a corrective action. This allows you to make necessary changes and meet your submission deadline.
  • Short wait period
    Receive in-depth comments on your manuscript within 5 days rather than wait for several weeks or months to receive similar comments from a journal reviewer.

Artwork Preparation

When preparing your manuscript it is essential to create effective artwork that complements and boosts the impact of your research. However, it can be very difficult to follow the technical artwork guidelines laid down by journals. With our Artwork Preparation service, you can save precious time and effort by ensuring that your artwork is viewed favorably by the journal without you having to incur the additional cost of purchasing special graphics software.

How it works

  • Send us your final editable artwork files and other relevant information.
  • Our designers will format/revise your artwork to meet the journal’s technical requirements, while an expert editor checks your artwork for consistency and technical accuracy.
  • Check the files and resend for revisions (as many times as required, within 60 days).

Plagiarism Check

One of the most common reasons for rejection is plagiarism – often journal editors find that manuscripts contain sections that appear to have been plagiarized. Lack of time or difficulty with the English language could result in manuscripts that have unintended instances of plagiarism. Such instances could not only lead to rejection by journals but could also damage your reputation and credibility as a researcher.

How it works

STEP 1: You send us your manuscript

STEP 2: We scan it for plagiarism, using Turnitin
We use plagiarism detection software (Turnitin) to compare the contents of your manuscript with over 38 million scholarly articles, books, and conference proceedings.*

STEP 3: You receive a report with recommendations for revision
After the scan is complete, our publication experts provide you with a report that recommends the relevant corrective action, depending on the seriousness of the issue.

*Editage does not guarantee the detection of instances in addition to those highlighted by Turnitin.
