For Scientists By Scientists

eCORRECTOR is a specialised editing and proofreading service for academics intending to submit their work to international peer-reviewed journals. Our expert editors and proofreaders are all native speakers of English, hold a PhD (or equivalent, e.g. Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Law) and the majority are actively publishing scientists. We are well aware of the rigorous standards placed on language during the publication process; these can be a key factor when reviewers evaluate texts.

Editing and Proofreading in over 30 areas of science

We provide journal editors and scientists with PhD level editing and proofreading in all the major areas of science. Manuscripts are edited or proofread for grammar, punctuation and overall sentence structure. We have substantial experience editing and proofreading in the following areas:
  • Biomedical Science (molecular and cell biology, molecular therapeutics, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology, genetics, neuroscience, microbiology)
  • Clinical studies (medicine, psychology, emerging infectious diseases)
  • Ecology (environmental science, botany, wildlife and fisheries)
  • Engineering (industrial, civil, chemical and bioengineering)
  • Physics, mathematics and geology
  • Chemistry (organic, materials and chemical engineering)
  • We also accept sociology and management papers

Our Specialist Editors and Proofreaders

Many journals require that manuscripts are edited or proofread by a native speaker of English. In our experience, good editing or proofreading of technical academic texts can only be carried out properly when the editor or proofreader is both a native speaker of English and a person familiar with the manuscript content. For this reason we are very selective over our editors and proofreaders and strive to provide only excellent editing and proofreading. Our editors and proofreaders are PhD’s and Doctor’s of Medicine who have received their qualifications from prestigious universities, mainly in the UK and USA. Many are active researchers who continue to publish their work and therefore remain familiar with the challenges of the publication process.

Our proofreaders and editors hold a PhD (or equivalent) and are not Master’s or PhD students.

Mission statement: to provide language support to academics, whose first language is not English, and to break down any language barriers so that the results speak for themselves.”

Quality Assurance

We operate a strict selection procedure for our editors and proofreaders and carry our continuous assessment to ensure we provide the highest level of editing and proofreading. We have a strong track-record of regular and successful work with individual authors, journal editors and publishers and are aware of the strict language conditions required from international peer-reviewed journals. Our business has grown largely through word of mouth and recommendation to colleagues.

Our head of editing and proofreading, Dr. Hab. Mark Jeremy Hunt, author of over thirty publications and journal reviewer, oversees quality assurance at eCORRECTOR.

How We Work

All manuscripts are treated individually. We determine the most suitable editor or proofreader. We typically charge 0.04 GBP for PhD editing and 0.03 GBP for PhD proofreading per word for specialist proofreading. References are not usually included unless specifically requested by the author. Typical turnaround is 4 working days for a standard length manuscript (4000 words). You will receive a tracked-changes version and a final version, often with helpful comments aimed to strengthen the paper.

If you have any queries at any stage or post submission, our dedicated customer care team are happy to help and usually reply within 1 hr during normal office hours.
