Journal Article Editing for Academics

Our journal article editing service is designed to help academics successfully publish their work, whether in a journal, book, online, or at a conference.

Academic publishing is now fully globalized. We understand how important it is for academics and researchers from around the world to publish their research in English language journals that generally have a wider reach.

If English is not your first language, however, the biggest hurdle to publication is often the poor quality of written English. Only a professional editing service that specializes in editing for researchers and academics is fully equipped to help you to overcome this challenge.

Global English Editing is a leader in journal article editing because:

  • Our professional academic editors provide high-quality editing and proofreading services
  • We are a genuinely affordable option
  • Client confidentiality is guaranteed.

Outline of our journal article editing service

What our journal article editing service focuses on:
  • Eliminate spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes
  • Improve word use and sentence structure
  • The clear expression of ideas
  • Ensure subject/verb agreements, tense consistency, and active voice
  • Consistent language, spelling (American English or British English) and style
  • Consistent application of the journal’s referencing style (if any).


By utilizing our editing service, our clients are eligible for an editing certificate. A certificate is required by some journals during the submission process to prove that a manuscript has been professionally edited.

If the article is subsequently rejected by a publication solely on grounds of poor English, we also guarantee to edit it again free of charge.

For more information about the document return process please see the How it Works page.
