More Information About English Language Editing

Three Levels of Service

To better support all researchers, we offer three levels of English editing services:

Standard Editing includes correction of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and word usage errors, but your editors will not improve the style or flow of your manuscript. Because of this limited editing scope, manuscripts submitted for Standard Editing are eligible to earn an editing certificate, but not guaranteed.

With Advanced Editing, our editors correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and word usage errors, plus improve sentences that do not flow logically or naturally. They also provide an editing summary with examples of the changes made with explanations to help you understand why the changes were made, which you can use to guide your writing in the future. Because this editing is so thorough, manuscripts submitted for Advanced Editing are guaranteed to receive an editing certificate.

With Premium Editing, you receive the same thorough editing as the Advanced Editing option, plus you receive free Manuscript Formatting for your chosen journal and additional editing support after peer review. You also receive free Manuscript Formatting support for 365 days if you choose to change your target journal. Once you receive the reviewer comments on your manuscript, our editors will edit your responses and crosscheck them with your revised manuscript. Because this editing is so thorough, manuscripts submitted for Premium Editing are guaranteed to receive an editing certificate that you can submit alongside your manuscript.

Special Benefits of Premium

If you opt for our Premium Editing service, you’ll also receive free multiple-round editing support, plus free Manuscript Formatting for an unlimited number of journals (within 365 days) to ensure your manuscript is submission-ready. And, once your manuscript has gone through peer review, we’ll also edit your reviewer response letter, including cross-checking your responses against your manuscript.

Manuscript editing by subject area experts

Subject area experts with years of experience in research and scientific editing will edit your document. We have editors across every subject area. All are native English speakers and have postgraduate-level qualifications.

Plus, all our editors go through extensive language editing training for international publication standards, as well as grammar, punctuation, and style for American and British English. Our medical writers receive specific training in ICH–GCP, CONSORT, and ICMJE guidelines.

Re-editing Support

With Multiple-Round Editing (MRE), you can request re-editing of your document as many times as necessary to ensure your manuscript is completely ready for submission. MRE support is included for one year with Advanced and Premium Editing services (except in cases where the manuscript has been heavily re-written or had new sections added). MRE support is discounted by 60% for one year with our Standard Editing service. Contact us to request an MRE.

Certified Editing

The Wiley Editing Certificate (download example) is a PDF certificate that you can provide to the journal when you submit your manuscript. This certificate confirms that your manuscript was edited by a native English speaker and is ready for journal submission, assuming all the changes we proposed are incorporated into the manuscript. It allows journal editors to feel confident that the English language in your manuscript has been reviewed and verified.

Manuscripts edited through our Advanced and Premium Editing services are guaranteed to receive a Wiley Editing Certificate. Manuscripts submitted for Standard Editing are eligible to earn a certificate, but not guaranteed.

Additional Support

You can contact your editor, even after your article editing is completed, using our Client Questions service to send any questions you have to your editor. You can find the ‘Client Questions’ feature by logging into your WES Online Account.
