Why Revise your Manuscript before Submitting to
the Medical Editor?

  • Imagine! You are a young scientist working on an
    interesting and trending topic of the year. You
    have discovered something awesome, something very
    significant. And now, you wish to publish your
    work so that the world comes to know about your
    discovery.
  • But, most of the journals have rejected your
    article.
  • How will you feel?

    submitted my manuscript to the reputed medical
    editor. So, why didnt they recognize and
    encourage the worth of my paper?

Why Revise the Manuscript?
  • To answer this, you must understand what a
    manuscript revision is and how it adds value.
    Manuscript revision means to see again and
    make changes for the better.
  • Now, these changes can be a few small changes or
    large, sweeping changes that involve
    reorganization of the part or all of the text, a
    change of tone and voice, or fixing the
    grammatical errors.
  • A manuscript revision is done by the author or
    the medical editors, who are experts in the
    applicable subject.

Difference between Revising and Editing
  • Revising the manuscript means self-editing.
    When you sit down to re-read your first draft,
    you will come across many mistakes which you want
    to change. This process is called revision.
  • Editing is when you hire a medical editor to give
    a professional perspective to the text and
    enhance its clarity and readability.
  • Therefore, you first revise i.e. work on it
    yourself and make it as good as you personally
    can, and then you edit (by hiring a
    professional medical editing services)

How to Revise your Manuscript?
Revising your manuscript becomes easy when you
keep these key points in mind
  • Who is your audience?
  • Which is your target journal?
  • Is your manuscript within the recommended word
    limit?
  • Is there any plagiarized content in the
    manuscript?
  • Did you check the reference protocols?
  • What is the average acceptance rate of your
    publisher?

Before submitting your revised file to the
medical editor, make sure that you
  • Follow the editorial guidelines
  • Submit figures, graphs, and tables in a separate
    file
  • Use double spacing throughout the text
  • Use Times New Roman or Symbol fonts

  • Prepare equations using standard equation symbols
  • Prepare files for 8 ½ by 11-inch paper size
  • Define acronyms when you first use them in the
    content
  • Number the tables and figures in order
  • Dont refer to data not shown in the main
    manuscript
