I am a faithful client of AJE from 2009, and I was never disappointed once for the service receive. From the moment I started to use AJE all my scientific papers have been accepted: luck! perhaps, but also good english helps.
Andrea Camperio Ciani, Italy
My editor was fantastic. Since I am an international student, I needed help with wordiness, verb use and awkward sentences. Without changing my idea, the editor suggested correction and indicated where revision was necessary. He also offered better use of words suitable to academic papers. Very recommended.

The AJE Guarantee

The completed manuscript you receive from AJE’s editing services is covered by our editing guarantee. We guarantee that if you are not satisfied with the editing of your manuscript or if a journal mentions English language errors, we will re-edit your document for free.

For Standard and Advanced Editing, material added to your paper after our editors work on your manuscript is not included in this guarantee. For this reason, we recommend that you send us your final draft when you order our services. If you need to add content or make substantial changes after receiving comments from the journal editor or reviewers, you may resubmit your paper for a discounted re-edit.

Our Premium Editing service provides more robust editing support designed for customers seeking a greater degree of assistance with their manuscript. We will continue to re-edit your document for free until it has been published.

If a journal mentions English as a problem in a manuscript that we edited, we want to know. Please contact us with the file that you sent to the journal and all the comments from the journal. We will reply with a solution within 1 business day.

If you are unsatisfied with our editing, we will work with you until you are satisfied. Please provide one or two specific examples or a few details about what is unsatisfactory.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are your editors?

Our editors have or are currently completing a Masters, PhD, MD, or nursing degree from one of the top research universities in the U.S. They are native English speakers with extensive research, publishing, and/or teaching experience in their field and must meet rigorous selection standards based on the quality of their writing.

What is the AJE Editing Certificate?

AJE will provide a certificate confirming that your paper was edited by AJE. Assuming that any changes we proposed are incorporated into the manuscript, the certificate guarantees that the English quality of your manuscript is appropriate for peer review. If your paper does not earn a certificate after one round of editing, we will be happy to work with you to improve the language until the paper qualifies for a certificate.

What is an AJE Research Communication Partner?

Research Communication Partners (RCPs) are experts in their field who have a thorough knowledge of the publication process. They are well versed in all of AJE’s services and can help you understand which services will best fit your needs. If you have questions, concerns, or special requests, your RCP will provide personalized support, listen to your concerns, and help you until your paper is successfully published. All of our RCPs have previous experience as AJE editors or quality control editors, so if you have any questions about the changes your editor made, your RCP can provide explanations. In addition, if you purchase Premium Editing, you will receive personalized access to an RCP who will contact you to introduce themselves and listen to any concerns or questions you might have about our services, the editing process or the publication process. 

Do you edit LaTeX documents?

AJE now supports direct editing of LaTeX files in all areas of study.

To submit a manuscript for editing directly in LaTeX:

  1. Submit your work for editing.
  2. Upload your LaTeX file in the document upload section of the process.
  3. Upload any related dependency files that we would need to compile your LaTeX file (e.g., figures, .sty, .cls, .bib, .pdf etc.) as reference files.

Please note: Only manuscripts written in English are eligible for direct editing in LaTeX. Changes will not be tracked within the edited LaTeX files themselves. If possible, we will generate a compiled PDF of the file showing the changes that have been made to your document. If you wish to see your changes tracked within the same document, please convert your file to another format. To do this, save your file as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file before submitting it for editing. In this case, we also ask that you include a PDF of your manuscript that can be used as a reference.
