Get Professional Recommendations from Subject Matter Experts

Our Subject Matter Experts help you select one or more target journals. You also receive a report that ranks the journal(s) and explains how they evaluate submitted manuscripts. This helps you overcome the threshold.

As part of your pre-submission process, our editors provide professional recommendations which significantly increase the production value of your work, such as

  • changing the title and abstract
  • improving the presentation of visual elements
  • generating a persuasive submission letter
  • showing a clear understanding of the journal’s aim and scope
  • highlighting compelling reasons for publication

Most times, following an evaluation of your submission, journal reviewers issue a conditional approval that requires you to address certain issues.

In such cases, FirstEditing’s experts specialize in responding to such difficult comments and questions from journal reviewers. This personalized service significantly increases your chances of receiving final approval for publication.
