Read more below about submitting your biological article, manuscript, or conference paper and receiving our professional research proofreading and editing services.

The Emergence of the Biosciences in Academic Research

Because the 21st Century is the “Century of Biology,” life sciences journals are flourishing more, publishing increasingly more papers in a wide array of biological fields and subdisciplines, from genetics and microbiology, to zoology, environmental science, and biotechnology. High-impact journals in these and other fields are growing in number and publish new biological and biomedical research articles every month. For serious researchers to get their studies published in SCI Journal List publications and other life sciences journals, they need both important and peer-reviewed research and a well-written research article that conveys their results and the study scope and implications accurately and in a way that readers and researches will find useful and readable. In fact, the final step before submitting an article to any scientific journal is to send it to a language editor to ensure that the research is well written and expertly formatted per the journal’s Guide for Authors and submission guidelines.

Why is Editing and Proofreading Important in the Journal Submission Process?

The submissions and publications process for bioscience journals is highly competitive—the best biological sciences journals accept only a fraction of the manuscripts submitted to their journal editor. Manuscript rejection can be attributed to many factors, but one of the main reasons journals editors and referees reject scientific articles is due to language errors and writing problems. Therefore, academic editing and proofreading (or as many journals call it, “language editing”) is essential for manuscript preparation, not only for authors whose first language is not English, but even for experienced researchers, many of whom pay a lot of money to make sure their research is perfectly written and conveyed in academic and natural English. Senior researchers working in the biological sciences produce many kinds of written documents, from lab reports and literature reviews, to manuscript abstracts and entire papers and even books on their scientific research. But even the best scientific study requires excellent writing and formatting to be published and make its authors a success in the world of research journal publications. Whether you are preparing an article on peptides for publication in The Journal of Physiological Sciences a conference paper on palm trees to present at the annual Global Conference on Plant Science or perhaps a literature review on sickle-cell anemia research to submit to Hereditas journal of genetics—or even a lab report for a university biology course or a research grant proposal on the study of Formicidae—the biological sciences subject experts at Wordvice will edit and proofread your work so that it is ready for publication, polishing the terms and expression to perfection. And once you know that your manuscript is in the hands of an expert editor, you can be confident that your work will soon be on its way to journals and research databases, ready to be viewed and cited by researchers in your scientific field.

How do Wordvice Editors Differ from Other Editors?

Like academic editors at any competent language editing and proofreading firm, our editors and proofreaders can apply any standard scientific formatting style (APA, AMA, MDPI, etc.) and can follow the guidelines for authors of nearly any scientific publication, ensuring that your scientific research paper will be ready for submission to even the most prestigious journals. However, where Wordvice differs from other companies is that we hire only subject experts with advanced degrees in their subject areas (masters, doctorate, and MD degrees) and with years of editing experience as freelance editors and working at other reputable international editing firms. In other words, we have the best editors because we recruit from the best pool of talent and concentrate them in one elite squad of language and subject experts. Once you upload your scientific document, we allocate your order to an editor with knowledge and experience in your research field, meaning that your language editor will be familiar with the academic writing conventions of specific journals in the biological sciences and beyond.

In addition to outstanding editing quality, we offer editing and proofreading services at competitive rates and delivery times that are most convenient for you. Not only are grammar, spelling, mechanics and punctuation errors resolved, but style issues such as wordiness, awkward language, unacademic terms, and unnatural expressions are fixed, and any additional issues can be tailored to suit the individual needs of your scientific manuscript. Correcting these writing issues is exactly what our professional proofreaders specialize in doing, meaning our biological sciences editing and proofreading services will give you maximum confidence in the papers you submit to journals.

Has Wordvice Helped Many Research Authors Get Published?

Since 2013, Wordvice has assisted over 10,000 researchers, scholars, graduate and doctoral students, and others in the scientific research industry get published in major scientific journals around the world. In the process, our professional editors have edited over 90 million words! So we know thing or two about how to achieve success in the journal publication industry. Just ask the 85% of our repeat clients who have used our services for multiple manuscript submissions.

Scientific documents almost always contain a multitude of detailed and specialized information. Descriptions of complicated methods and results, definitions of discipline-specific terms and abbreviations, and explanations of complex data abound in all manner of scientific publications: books, articles, theses, dissertations, laboratory reports, grant proposals, and even assignments for university science courses. In all of these publications, clarity of meaning, accuracy of terms and reporting, proper formatting, and consistency in all categories are crucial, not only for communicating information to researchers seeking relevant scientific literature for their studies on a database search, but also for being presented in prestigious scientific journals, whose editors must always consider their readership and the quality and readability of the work they publish—this can include research specialists and the general public. All scientific language must be clear and correct, contain zero grammatical errors, have no punctuation or spelling issues, and use correct and consistent formatting and referencing techniques. Unclear writing and inconsistent terminology can confuse readers and cause them to simply move on to the next study. However, creating a well-written research paper is no easy feat for most authors, and using perfect grammar and natural English expressions when complex and detailed research content is involved can seem almost impossible, especially when writing a science book or research article in a language that is not your native tongue.

When you send your academic paper to our language editors, include along with your document any relevant information about formatting guidelines and instructions; the name and website of the journal to which you will be submitting; the English type (British or American style) that the writing needs to use; and any additional editing instructions your editor needs to know. This information will help your proofreader focus on the most important elements of the writing to edit and provide the most productive and effective approach to improving your important scientific work.
