Professional Copy Editors
Bart Larivi?re (who is a non-native English speaker) seeks input on professional copy editors who are also competent in marketing/research
Non-English-speaking authors (including me) often face problems with their paper’s exposition/readability, grammatical errors, etc. Many scientific journals encourage the use of a copy-editor for non-native English speakers. Before I submit a manuscript, I always hire the services of a copyeditor. Recently, however, I received the following justified comment from an anonymous reviewer: “your paper will need to be checked not just by a person competent in language but also in marketing/research”.
Can anyone assist me? Do you know professional copyeditors or other organizations that are also acquainted with marketing and research? What was your experience?…
I would love to hear your suggestions. You can send them to bart.lariviere@UGent.be
I will be happy to report back to ELMAR with a summary of responses.
