Terms and Conditions
We keep your files strictly confidential. Please see our Confidentiality Policy for more details.
We do not actively screen for plagiarism, but we will return your manuscript immediately if we find it. We strongly suggest that authors use a program to screen for plagiarism, as it can easily be introduced, inadvertently, during the writing process.
Editing includes comprehensive editing of the file sent for editing (excluding references) and one minor revision of the author’s changes made in response to our comments/edits. If more extensive re-editing is required (e.g., in response to reviewers’ comments) a new price quote can be generated based on the time required.
Turnaround time begins upon acceptance of the price quote.
Payments can be made by credit card, check, or wire transfer. Please contact the Editor if another means of payment is required. All payments must be received within 60 days of completed services or are subject to interest charges.
Please read our edits carefully. The author is responsible for the final wording of the paper. We cannot be responsible for any edits made after our edits and we cannot influence whether the journal accepts your manuscript.
Plant Editors collects, via this website and via email, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) such as name, e-mail address, and organizational affiliation. Further PII may be contained in manuscripts submitted for editing, or through the billing process. This PII is collected to facilitate communications, quality assurance, and billing for manuscript editing. PII may be shared with science editors, administrative staff, third-party accounting software vendors and others that participate in the editing process. Because science editing is often a multi-step process, and because client relationships are frequently ongoing, PII is stored indefinitely to facilitate ongoing project review and to support internal quality control procedures.
By entering your PII on the contact form below, you warrant that we may store and use your PII for science editing purposes.
