Answers to frequently asked questions 

- Substantive editing differs from English editing and from Advanced editing.  English editing is mostly correcting English grammar at the sentence level -  as such, many times enough. Advanced or Professional editing, in addition, aims to correct the structure of the article. It, for instance, reorganizes paragraphs. Our Substantive editing means that we focus on the substance, the scientific content of the article. We are almost like authors themselves.

We help you to develop the whole story of your research. We help you to put the research in the proper scientific context and present the research so that readers will understand, why your article should be read and published. We help you to make interpretations and conclusions and write an interesting discussion. 

- In practice, we can write new paragraphs, search for articles to refer, read the articles, write about them, interpret results, question your interpretations, find mistakes and inconsistencies and make conclusions. We do the same what the authors do in scientific writing.

- The time taken for our editing varies a lot and depends on the original quality of the work, as well as on the level wanted. One week is a short time if we start with searching for references and write about them in the context of your research. Therefore, our prices are high.

- After our substantive editing, you most often don't need to worry about plagiarism. If you are afraid of that, tell us.

- English editing by a native speaker costs 0.05 euros per word. If you don't need it, you get a reduction.

 - We keep editing certificates mostly useless, because no universal quality standards for editing, not even English editing, exists. If you for some reason need it, we write what we have done.

 - We write you a short cover letter. We choose the aspects that we think are important for the editor to know when deciding whether to send your paper to reviewers. We believe that the editors read the Abstract and Conclusions and do not repeat them.
