Intended for already well-written work accepted for publication pending final grammar checks.
What happens next?
You will be invited to create a Bioedit account if you do not have one already. Then, you can securely upload your file(s) and confirm the details of your request. We will then review your request, and send you a formal quote. You can then decide whether you would like to proceed with the work and confirm your preferred payment method, or you can amend/cancel your request.
How is the price calculated?
Unlike many other editing services, Bioedit charged on a per word basis, meaning you are charged exactly for the amount of text we are asked to check. The rate per word is determined by the editing service level and turnaround speed you request.
Importantly, we only include text that we might edit in your quote, so reference lists, table data, title page details etc. are not included. If you would like us to only edit certain sections of your paper, you can request this also.
Table and figure titles and legends are included in the word count unless you specifically ask us not to include them. Only text that appears in MS Word files can be included, and the text must be in an editable format (i.e., not embedded in images).
What sort of documents can I send?
Although our services are designed for research manuscripts in the medical and life sciences, we can help you with other kinds of documents related to your work. Grant applications, reviewer response/rebuttal letters, cover letters, CVs/resumes, product leaflets, book chapters, and research proposals are just a few of the document types we are happy to edit. These are all charged on a per word basis in the same manner.
How can I make payment?
Bioedit accepts payment by all major credit cards, through our secure checkout provided by WorldPay. Users in China can also make payment by Alipay, UnionPay, or WeChat.
Bank transfer payments are also accepted pending your acceptance of the quote we send to you.
Users wishing to pay by KAKENHI can do so via our partner company in Japan, SD Biosystem.
Please see our revisions policy for details on the conditions that apply to services for papers we have edited previously.
What other services do you provide?
At the next step, you will be able to choose from our add-on services, including Pre-Peer Review (to give you an extra level of feedback from our editors) and Journal Selection (which helps you to decide on an appropriate journal to submit your paper to). Plagiarism Check provides a scan of your manuscript to check potential instances of plagiarism or overlap with previously published work. Lastly, our Write My Cover Letter! includes a drafted cover letter suitable to accompany your submission to the journal. These are charged for on a fixed price basis.
Can I make a deposit for future editing services?
Yes! We understand that researchers often wish to allocate a portion of their annual grants to publication and editing services. Many of the authors we work with make a deposit with us and then claim from this deposit at a later date. Please contact us for further information or to arrange a deposit with us.
