    Scientific Developmental Editing and Language Review [3 Editors]

    Top Impact Scientific Editing begins with a rigorous examination of your manuscript by a working researcher specializing in the subject of your paper. They will bring their knowledge and experience to offer you practical suggestions to improve your research presentation. Our scientific editors have edited or reviewed for high IF journals including Nature*, NEJM*, and The Lancet*, and are familiar with their demands. They will review your paper to:

    • Assess overall structure, organization, focus, and the development of scientific argument
    • Examine if discussions and conclusion adequately address your research question
    • Identify sections that are too brief, unnecessarily long, or unfocused
    • Evaluate the effectiveness of supporting materials and supplementary information

    Language Editing and Quality Check (Rounds 2 & 3)

    After your manuscript has been reviewed by our scientific editor, it will go through two additional rounds of editing by native English-speaking subject matter experts. They will review your research manuscript to improve clarity, reduce redundancy, ensure appropriate tone and proper technical usage for your discipline, and enhance the writing to make it crisp and impactful.

    Top Impact Scientific Report

    Your scientific editor will provide a report that examines your manuscript from the perspective of a peer reviewer, including:

    • Summary assessment of the originality and significance of your research
    • Analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each section, with suggestions for alternative presentations and missing vital information to be supplemented
    • Recommendation for additional content that might be required by peer reviewers, e.g. limitations of the present research or its future applicability, gaps in literature review, methodology, or statistical analysis, protocols, and ethical requirements that need to be specified
    • Journal compatibility check, if the target journal is provided; and additional information that the target journal suggests or demands, e.g.  conflict of interest declaration
    • Comments on the writing quality of your manuscript, explanations of what has been addressed by the editing, and suggestions for substantive revisions that can only be done by the author

This would allow you to pre-empt problems that might arise during journal peer review process, thereby increasing the chance of acceptance and potentially shortening the review period.
