Preferred Editing Service
Didn’t qualify for free publication? We’ll take it from here.
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 all articles would be published for free, 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 Preferred Editing service comes in.
How does it work?
We evaluate the language and formatting of your article submission and route your article down the appropriate path. Remember you only get one chance at free publication, so make sure your first submission is in great shape!
If we find no or few errors, your article will qualify for free publication and proceed directly to peer review.
If too many errors are found upon submission or after deferral, your article will require our Preferred Editing service. We’ll take care of all formatting and language edits. If our editors have any questions about the scientific content of your article, you may be asked to clarify or revise. Only three actions required: submit article, revise article after peer review, hit the publish button.
Professional 3rd party
Article submissions that need extensive revision to fix numerous grammar, syntax, sentence structure and readability issues will be required to undergo professional editing help from a third party service. Professional 3rd party editing does not guarantee publication and DIY services such as Grammarly are not accepted. We recommend the following services: Editage, Enago, Peak Medical Editing, Scribendi.
