Poor language editing prompts publication rejection or the editors to recommend resubmission after extensive English-language editing. Each round of editing takes several months, so at best poor English-language delays the publication of your article, at worst causes rejection. It is a good idea to make sure that one’s article is written in impeccable English. An article written in excellent English guarantees that you do not have to resubmit for the language editing, and helps you obtain more positive comments.
Academic-Editing.org was set up in 2022 to help academics, businesses, students and job seekers write in perfect English.
