President's Greeting

I began the Edanz language editing service for ESL authors in Fukuoka, Japan, in 1995. From the beginning Edanz offered an innovative service; cutting prices by over 50% and reducing the then standard seven day delivery to just three, with an overnight express service. Edanz has always been and still is the leading language editing innovator. The first to openly tell authors who their editors were and show their background qualifications; the first, in 2008, to offer expert services such as journal selection, expert scientific review (pre-submission peer review), abstract development, and rewriting support in response to peer review; the first, in 2012, to offer a free journal selector tool searching over 18,000 journals and relevant to researchers in all fields. New innovative tools and services will be released in 2016. I am proud that Edanz is considered the editing industry “gold standard” for quality and on time service. The professionalism of our worldwide team of expert editors, writers and reviewers, our in-house senior and quality control editors, and our IT and customer service teams is unparalleled. Authors using Edanz services can be confident their chances of publication will be greatly increased. I personally guarantee the quality of our work.

Our policies and practices 

As an associate member of COPE, Edanz supports the current industry standards in publication and research ethics. We practice this commitment through transparent and ethical services, as well as offering guidance to authors should an ethical issue arise with their manuscript.

You can read more about the Edanz ethics policies in the ethics section.

Yes, we can edit references, but only if you ask us to; it is not part of our normal editing service.

References will be edited for compliance with the correct format. Edanz editors will not rewrite the actual format between, for example, Harvard and Vancouver styles if the author has used the wrong one.

Reference management software makes this an easy job for the author. However, Edanz does not edit citations or references generated by reference management software such as EndNote or Mendeley because any changes would be overwritten if the citations or references are regenerated later.

 

Reference editing includes:

  • Correct spelling and punctuation as per target journal instructions
  • Adjust typography (e.g., bold, italics) as per target journal instructions
  • Correct spacing, replace Asian characters, correct Journal title style
  • Adjust number of author names in references as per journal requirements
  • Check that in-text reference style is correct

Reference editing does not include:

  • Change reference order from numerical to alphabetical or vice-versa
  • Research and insert author names when they are missing
  • Alphabetize references by author name
  • Check the existence, accuracy or validity of the citation

You can place an order by completing the online order form and uploading your file(s). If you experience difficulties completing the form, an email with your file(s) attached can be sent to global(at)edanzediting.com. If you need further guidance, call us at: +852-8127-7515

Figure files

If necessary for editing, or if they would be useful as a guide for the editor, please send us your figures. If they are large, consider sending us a low resolution version (we can only receive files up to 5MB). We can receive PDF, JPEG, PNG, GIF, and TIFF files.

The Edanz guarantee

The English language editing that Edanz’s expert editors do will improve the chances of your manuscript being accepted for publication. However, we cannot “edit” the research content of your manuscript: this is something for peer reviewers to comment on. Therefore, while we cannot make any guarantees regarding the publication of your research, we can guarantee that we will get your manuscript into the best possible condition for submission to a journal for peer review.

    • Inappropriate authorship
    • Undisclosed conflicts of interest

Plagiarism

Our policies on plagiarism

Plagiarism is a major ethical offense in publishing and Edanz strives to ensure that all of our dealings with authors are ethically responsible and also to encourage and educate authors to be ethically responsible. Knowingly modifying plagiarized text still counts as plagiarism; therefore, Edanz has set out strict policies on any plagiarism found in a manuscript submitted to us.

  • If plagiarized text is found during editing, the text will be highlighted and left unedited. Authors will be advised about the issue and guidance offered if needed on how to resolve the situation.
  • Any text that has been directly copied and pasted from another source and submitted to us for rewriting/editing will be returned to the author without revision so that the author can replace it with original text prior to editing.
  • Articles or portions of articles that have previously been published cannot be rewritten or used without attribution. These will be returned to the author with guidance on proper publication and citation practice.

Please note, although we will identify any text to the author that has been found to be plagiarized, we do not screen for plagiarism. The final content of all manuscripts handled by Edanz is always the responsibility of the author.
