Academic editing services for journals

Journal editors state that they often reject manuscripts due to a substandard quality of writing and presentation. A poorly drafted manuscript can detract from your research and make comprehension of your writing difficult to understand. When publishers encounter poorly presented manuscripts, they may question the professionalism and standing of the author, consequently rejecting the paper and disregarding the validity of the research. No hard-working academic or researcher wants this to happen, but it is a widespread occurrence in the industry.

Publication in peer-reviewed journals is an essential ingredient of a successful academic career. In order to interest journal editors and publishers your language needs to be impressive and to communicate absolute clarity when attempting to express complex ideas. It is therefore crucial that the papers you submit for publication are of the highest standard. Submitting your manuscript for academic editing services will greatly enhance your chances of being published in prestigious journals and publications.

The editors at Mindful Metta will help you to perfect the style, tone, clarity, and structure of your paper. They will help you to showcase the most important elements of your research so that editors can easily absorb the content and significance of your work. In addition to eliminating errors in grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary, our academic writing services will advise on tone, flow, structure, and the overall organisation of your paper. We provide detailed feedback and suggested amendments to ensure you submit a publishable paper.

Editors of journals and publishing houses often ask writers to revise and amend certain elements of their manuscript to get published. This is common practice in the industry and is a way that editors can have their specific requirements met. However, sometimes the authors in question panic and doubt their ability to carry out these revisions. This is where we come in – to provide expert academic editing services to directly action the editor’s required amendments and to ensure they are effectively addressed. All our editors are accustomed to such work and warm to the task with precision and great expertise.

In addition to having expertise in language editing, our academic editors provide editorial services for a wide range of academic disciplines, including the humanities and social sciences. Our editing services include proofreading, deep-line editing, and style formatting according to the requirements of the relevant journal. Most academic journals have very strict guidelines to how they want manuscripts submitted – this includes line-spacing, marginal lengths, font type and size, paragraphing, capitalisation, headings layout – all of which will be taken care of by our expert academic editors.

Our editorial team are made of scholars with years of valuable academic writing, lecturing, and editing experience. They have a deep knowledge of the submission and publication process and will thus apply the necessary scrutiny of your manuscript to maximize your chances of publication. All our editors have finely trained eyes to spot the slightest of mistakes and to provide creative solutions to deeper language or argument issues that may arise. Our editorial team will meticulously scrutinise your manuscript for flaws and are always on the lookout for ways to improve your academic writing. Authors can be confident that their chances of publication will be greatly enhanced after passing through our academic editing services.

Editing services for university assignments

Our student clients frequently tell us that their tutors and supervisors do not have the time to provide the kind of detailed feedback provided by our academic editing services in the UK.

They say that it is often difficult to arrange a short-notice supervisory meeting with their tutors, and when they do, only a limited amount of help can be covered. They also inform us that when they do get an essay, dissertation, or other assignment marked and returned, there are often limited comments and corrections made in relation to the text – not enough, they tell us – to make a significant difference in improving their work. The students therefore prefer to come to us for essay, dissertation, assignment proofreading and editing services, where they can guarantee a detailed inspection and analysis of their work.

Undergraduate writing can be challenging, even for native English speakers. Although university students have the intelligence to succeed and have creative ideas, they often lack the ability to effectively communicate those ideas when it comes to their writing. This failure of expression in the written word can result in poor grades and diminished confidence. Student editing services are therefore required to provide the help and support that is needed. Submitting an assignment to Mindful Metta will not only eliminate language problems but will also provide crucial feedback for the development of the assignment. Each editorial acts as a learning curve for the student, informing their writing skills for future projects.

For students whose native tongue is other than English, the task is even greater.

Overseas students often struggle with the high standards of English required to excel at university. All university written assignments require proficiency in the English language in order to succeed. To pass assignments, students must deliver writing that is of higher quality than what they have previously encountered at school and other education establishments. In order to gain the highest grades, university writing must be free of errors and lucid in expression. This is no easy task, especially for international students with English as a second language.

But help is just a text, call, or email away.

Mindful Metta's UK essay editing services will ensure your university assignments are of a professional standard. Our crack team of editors will correct flaws in grammar, punctuation, and syntax as well as address the style, organization, and flow of your work. Our editorials will ensure that the writing of non-native English speakers is indistinguishable from native speakers. The detailed revisions of our editors will not only improve the quality of your assignments but also greatly advance your English writing skills.

Frequently asked questions

What is proofreading?

Proofreading is the process in which your writing is checked for errors and mistakes. This would include checking for typographical errors and flaws in grammar, style, and spelling. While many people are pretty good at spotting errors in other peoples’ work, they tend to be less diligent with their own work. This is often because they are too close to the project and cannot see the wood for the trees. In other words, they are over familiar with the material and therefore cease to read it diligently. Thus, our academic essay, thesis, dissertation, and PhD proofreading services are in great demand.

Students of all levels use our academic editing services. We carry out assignment and essay proofreading for undergraduates, dissertation proofreading and editing for postgraduates, and thesis proofreading for PhDs. We have an existing client base for postdoctoral writers and advanced scholars who require academic proofreading and editing services for their books, reports, research projects, and journal articles.
