Title: Best Medical Proofreading Services

How to Get the Best Out of Your Medical
Proofreading and Editing Service?
Medical Proofreading
  • Its necessary to review your work before
    submitting to the journal. Now, you can either
    request your department head or a colleague to
    review your manuscript or take help of the
    professional medical editing and proofreading
  • For many researchers, such professional medical
    proofreading services are economical because it
    enhances the quality of the research document.

But, before you submit your document to the
professional editing and proofreading services,
look at these suggestions on how to get the best
out of their service
Send your Best Document
  • Professional editors are busy people. They have
    to pay attention to others documents as well and
    can devote only a part of their time to yours.
  • So, it is good if you fix everything you can in
    the document before giving it to the editor.
  • For example, missing/extra spaces, heading style,
    and consistency of the references list. This
    will help the editor stay focused and address the
    issues you cant.

Tell your Issues in Advance
  • If you have any issue with the terminology used
    in the document or the structure of the
    sentences, inform your editors in advance.
  • This way the editor wont waste his time looking
    for the problems but offer you the solution
    straight away.

Ask Questions
  • Majority of the medical editing services offer a
    facility to address the authors questions
    regarding the edited document.
  • Use this facility to seek answers to your queries
    and to learn from the editor.
  • This will help you prepare your future

Provide the Necessary Information
  • Give your editor all the information he needs for
    an effective edit.
  • For example, the format of the document as per
    the journal guidelines, the name of your target
    journal, the recommended word count, and your
    contribution to the manuscript.

Provide your Feedback
  • If the editor misunderstood a technical term or
    has not adhered to certain conventions of your
    field, write to him about this.
  • The editors welcome the suggestions from the
    authors. Also, if you do not agree with the
    changes he made, communicate such concerns to
  • This will help him clarify why he made the change
    and you may agree with his logical explanation.

  • However, dont criticize the editor even if you
    dont agree with his viewpoint. If you appreciate
    his work, tell the editor about it.
  • Consequently, he will take extra care to give a
    consistently good editing and proofreading
    service to you in the future.

  • Remember, preparing a manuscript is a continuous
    process. It may not be possible to prepare
    publication-ready document after just one round
    of editing. 
  • Therefore, view your relationship with the editor
    as long-term and collaborative rather than a
    onetime transaction.
  • Cooperate with your editor through multiple
    rounds of edits to get the best results. Finally,
    you can also take the help of your editor to
    answer the comments or the questions of the peer
    reviewers after submission.
