25 Years of Proven Journal Publication Experience

High Impact Journal Editing Service

Get YOUR Research Published in High Impact Journals

It is difficult for authors to publish their work in high impact journals, such as Springer, Taylor & Francis, and Elsevier. Global competition is intense and growing among researchers and scholars.

Journals reject manuscripts for three reasons:

  • the reviewers think the subject is not well-suited for publication in their journal 
  • the manuscript is poorly written and lacks coherence
  • the manuscript is not properly formatted under the journal’s strict requirements

Get professional help!

FirstEditing helps authors overcome both challenges, as we have a proven history of enhancing manuscripts to impress journal reviewers.

Get Professional Recommendations from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)

Our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) 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.

How Does English Academic Editing Work?

Upon submission of your manuscript, our project team carefully reviews each manuscript and assigns it to the editor with the most editing experience in your subject matter.

Your English Academic Editor then reviews your writing, makes a professional editing level recommendation, and responds with questions. With your approval, they begin editing.

Once your editor finishes, they return your revised manuscript with detailed comments.

Unlike our competitors, our editors do NOT send the manuscript to an Indian editor for further editing, where errors can arise because of language and comprehension concerns.

Communicate directly with your editor

If you have questions or problems with our service, communicate directly with your editor via email or telephone consultation.

After you revise the manuscript, you can send it back for a final proofread prior to submitting it to your target journal.

How is First Editing different from other editing companies?

Other well-known editing companies use a similar approach but have some critical differences.

First, authors place an order by choosing a service and sending their manuscript along with simple editing instructions to their Asian headquarter (often in India).

They then post your manuscript on a back-end electronic job board. There they offer your manuscript to hundreds of freelance editors. The first editor to accept the job edits the manuscript.

FirstEditing is NOT outsourcing editors from India

The random freelancer returns the finished job back to the company in India, where a non-native English speaker completes the editing.

Finally, your edited version returns.  If you are unhappy or have questions, you can contact the other company. However, you will not talk to your original editor.
