English Editing Services from MDPI

With experience of editing 70,000 published papers, MDPI has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to language editing. Native-English speakers edit every accepted paper prior to publication.

Accurate Editing

We recognize that improving the language before a final decision can help to improve the chances of successful publication and ease the task of editors and peer-reviewers. We offer language editing covering the following:

  • A check of spelling, grammar and punctuation;
  • Rewording of long or complicated phrases that might be difficult for readers to understand;
  • Correct usage of common technical terms;
  • Editing of Word or LaTeX files;
  • Conformation to the MDPI house style;

Note that extensive rewriting and reordering of the manuscript and checking of field-specific terms is not included.
