As part of our journal manuscript editing service, we
will format your manuscript to meet the precise
specifications of your target journal.

We format your manuscript to meet the requirements of your target journal.

Other editing companies charge up to $125 for formatting services. American Manuscript Editors provides this service at no additional cost as part of our journal manuscript editing service.

We relieve the burden of preparing your manuscript for publication by removing grammatical and structural errors in the language of the document while also formatting the document to the exact specifications of your target journal.

The experts at American Manuscript Editors will consult the author guidelines of the target journal that you specify when you submit your project and then modify the page layout, margins, line spacing, text formatting, in-text citations, references, headings, etc. according to these guidelines. Our experts will also make suggestions to help you comply with any relevant word count restrictions for the title, running title, abstract, and/or the main text.

Additionally, if you would like to reformat your manuscript for submission to a different journal, we offer format only services.

How it Works

With our Publication Ready™ guarantee, you can be certain that your manuscript will meet the English language requirements of your target journal. In fact, one of our editors with expertise in your research area will remove all grammatical errors and make recommendations for improving the flow and readability of your manuscript. At your request, we will also ensure your manuscript is formatted according to the specifications of your target journal. Our service is available for both native and non-native English speaking academicians.
