    Do you guarantee successful acceptance of my manuscript to my target journal?+

    We cannot guarantee journal acceptance. Journal review is autonomous and is not subject to any third party influence and the decision largely depends on the merit of your research. However, we do guarantee that our Top Impact Scientific Editing expert editors will make every effort to strengthen your manuscript and give it the best chances of successful publication.

    What is the background of your Scientific Editors and Quality Assurance reviewers+

    Our Scientific Editors and Quality Assurance reviewers are working researchers with experiences in editing or reviewing for high Impact Factor journals. They are well-versed in the requirements of such journals and could best advise you from the point of view of journal editors and reviewers.
