  • English Language Editing

    For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript, you need to ensure the English language is of professional quality with accurate technical terminology.

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
