Multi-level editing by native experts

Pubrica has a "double-tier" editor process. First, an SME vets the manuscript to check consistency, coherency, and comprehension; second, another SME takes a second pass to recast ambiguous writing from the manuscript. Our native English editors from Australia, UK, Canada, and the US are cognizant of the problems that speakers with English as Second Language (ESL) have to deal with.

Service across all specializations

We match manuscript-writing requests to our panel of Subject-Matter Experts (SMEs)—professional editors who work at their relevant field of specializations every day; moreover, they are certified and know the various phases of the publication process. Hence, let the experts handle the language and technicalities of your manuscript.

Quality at every phase

Top-grade editing by SMEs to ensure acceptance by publishers. PHD, MS, MSC, MPHARM, MD, and ME—these are some of the qualifications of our team members; moreover, they average approximately 21 years of work experience. Quality at every stage of the manuscript is indeed a priority. Therefore, talk to us about your specific requirements.

Pubrica editing process

All documents are edited on-screen in Microsoft Word with the ‘Track Changes’ tool turned on. This enables the author to see and print out all of the changes made to the document. Comments to the author are marked in yellow, within brackets. After editing, the author receives two files. The Edited file shows all changes made to your manuscript (given below), while in the Approved file the changes have been accepted and only the edited text is visible. Authors must carefully check the Approved file to ensure that their intended meaning has not been altered in the manuscript. If you have any questions regarding the edits done to the manuscript, please return the manuscript to us along with any queries that need to be addressed (see our Ask the expert); free of cost.

Each chapter is organized based on what comes in them. The vital thing to keep in mind when editing is to remember how the information will be absorbed in the reader’s point of view while retaining the author’s unique voice.

The correction part of the editing process includes all the modifications made to content to make it intelligible, precise, concise, and also the proofreading parts of eliminating all the errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuations.

The editing phase amends the content to fit the scientific language’s usage, flow, and clarity. While editing, one must look for awkward phrasing, biased language, and overuse of jargons, which will make the paper uninteresting for the audience. 

The editing process also ensures consistent usage of facts, data, and scientific units. Finally, the editing process must ensure that the manuscript conforms to the chosen style.

The purpose behind a piece of writing is to express oneself in a coherent manner, to provide information, and/or to create a piece of literary work for the readers. The most important aspect of a scientific paper, arguably, is content. Further, in case of scientific writing – presentation of the literary work in a manner that conforms to the expectations of the audience is significant in communicating complex and new information clearly. This vital skill is enhanced by practice, emulating word choice and its style, and by soliciting detailed and consistent feedback from peers or mentors. But, a writer’s ability to communicate his thoughts and ideas could be undermined, or even masked, by his poor writing skills and presentation.

The first step toward becoming conversant in scientific writing is learning how to recognise and redress mistakes that permeate one’s writing. One such important step is to proofread one’s completed literary work before submission. Proofreading, as the word implies,is the process of reading the proof to check for errors; proof is the crude manuscript that is sent to a publisher.

Practical Proofreading Strategies:

When it comes to proofreading, certain strategies can serve us well. Several practical proofreading tactics can be employed such as:

  • Printing out your work and having a hard copy can help in viewing your work differently, with fresh eyes.
  • Placing a separate piece of paper to block out unread pieces of text while you proofread very single line to help you concentrate on each word of your paper individually.


Due to deadline constraints, many don’t realize the importance of proofreading and overlook it. The importance of relevant content is well-known but many turn a blind eye towards the presentation of the said content. No writer – without reviewing, revising and reflecting – can achieve success in communicating with its intended readers. When done carefully, correctly and thoroughly, proofreading will save us from embarrassments. Proofreading is the last step between us and our reader, which is why it is necessary to take the time to ensure that our writing is accurate and clear.
