What do I get back from you?
• A detailed report with comments and explanations that correlate to the corrections made in the manuscript as well as simple instructions for handling the files.
• Your manuscript with full edits and mark-ups.
• If you choose to have all edits done "in file" (not in PDF), you will also receive a clean, edited manuscript with all changes made.
How do I count the words?
Go to the form where you can calculate if your software does not calculate for you.
