Cureus Editing Services
Enabling more authors to publish with tiered editing services
Cureus was founded on the belief that barriers to the publication and dissemination of peer-reviewed medical articles must be reduced. That’s why Cureus is an Open Access journal currently publishing the majority of articles completely free of charge. In a perfect world it would be 100%, and we’d love it if that were the case, but the fact is that many submissions arrive in less-than-ideal condition requiring substantial time, communication and editing on our part. That’s where our tiered editing services come in.
Cureus Editing Tiers
Every submission begins its life eligible for free publication, but only articles submitted with few or no errors will qualify. For the rest, we offer Preferred and Select Editing Services.
We provide you with templated feedback. You are responsible for all revisions.1 deferral permitted
Authors are expected to utilize templated feedback and our author guide to identify and fix mistakes with minimal guidance.
Fix everything identified in the deferral notice, and you’re on your way to free publication! One deferral is permitted, but if errors remain, Preferred or Select editing will be required to continue.
We provide you with detailed feedback. You are responsible for most revisions.Up to 5 deferrals
This is our Do-It-Yourself-assisted editing service. The majority of revisions will still be your responsibility.
You’ll be granted additional deferrals if needed (up to five) and provided with more detailed feedback on required revisions. We’ll handle any small errors that would normally be included in the deferral for a free article.
We take care of all formatting and language edits. You are responsible only for scientific revisions.No deferral limit
If our editors have any questions about the scientific content of your article, you may be asked to clarify or revise.
All language and formatting errors will be fixed by our editorial team. Only three actions required: submit article, revise article after peer review, hit the publish button.
