The Power of Pre-Peer Review Services for Academic Authors

By eContent Pro on Nov 20, 2023

The road to manuscript publication in a scholarly journal is often a long and challenging journey for researchers and academics. One of the critical milestones in this process is the peer review, where experts in the field evaluate the quality and validity of the research. However, before even reaching this stage, authors can benefit immensely from pre-peer review services, such as eContent Pro’s Scientific & Scholarly Editing service.

In this blog post, we will dive further into our Scientific & Scholarly Editing service and all it can offer to authors aspiring to have their work published in a scholarly journal, reference book, or conference proceedings.

What Is eContent Pro’s Scientific & Scholarly Editing Service?

After decades of observing frustrations that organizations and independent writers were facing when seeking editorial services, including deficiencies such as slow turnaround, overcharging, and low quality, the founders of eContent Pro (eCPro) took it upon themselves to confront these issues head on. Immediately, the brainstorming began, and in 2015, eCPro was formed and we began by offering our affordable, expeditious, and high-quality English Language Copy Editing & Proofreading service that we designed to best support publishers and individual authors and editors all over the world.

eCPro is and has always been a dynamic group of passionate individuals. After more than three years of success with our English Language Copy Editing & Proofreading service, we saw a need for additional services that could aid in improving the clarity, integrity, and overall quality of written material, and in 2019, launched additional services including Scientific & Scholarly Editing and Journal Recommendation.

In order to ensure that work is authoritative, general copy editing simply isn’t enough, and a review on the content level to deem whether the research is clearly constructed and relevant to the field is essential. While our English Language Copy Editing & Proofreading service polishes your manuscript for publication, our Scientific & Scholarly Editing service critically analyzes your work. Through our Scientific & Scholarly Editing service, manuscripts benefit from a rigorous, double-blind peer review, administered by two of our esteemed Scientific & Scholarly editors. These PhD-level experts employ meticulous evaluation criteria and engage in substantive content editing to provide authors with in-depth feedback and recommendations on how to make their manuscripts publication-ready.

It is important to note that our Scientific & Scholarly editors do not look at grammar and punctuation when they assess manuscripts. Rather, they evaluate the content and decide if it is fit for publication. This review can be crucial in making sure manuscripts are well-rounded, thorough, and relevant prior to having the publisher’s reviewers examine it.

It is almost impossible to be totally unbiased about your own writing, so having two additional pairs of expert eyes to critically look at your manuscript is very important. Experts in your research field are imparting their wisdom onto you, which is an invaluable tool not just for publication, but for learning more about how your work will be perceived in your academic community.

How eContent Pro’s Scientific & Scholarly Editing Service Increase Authors’ Chances of Acceptance

The constructive feedback authors receive from our Scientific & Scholarly editors includes an analysis of the manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses as well as suggestions to make the work more relevant, readable, and complete. Manuscripts undergo heavy examination with the following evaluation criteria:

  • Originality and Significance of the Contribution
    • Does the manuscript clearly explain its mission and coverage?
  • Interest to the Research Community and/or Practitioners
    • How useful is the material to the field?
  • Coverage of Existing Literature
    • Does the literature review contain relevant information in support of the manuscript?
  • Satisfactoriness of the Methodology, Analysis, and Comprehension
    • Does the manuscript contain a detailed explanation of research methods and procedures?
  • Clear, Concise, and Jargon-Free Writing
    • Does the manuscript clearly state the issues being addressed?
  • Organizational Structure
    • Is the manuscript clearly organized in a logical fashion? Are the author’s conclusions supported by the research?

After receiving valuable feedback from two fellow experts in a double-blind fashion, authors can improve the quality of their manuscripts and contributions to their respective fields, ideally increasing the potential for their manuscripts to be accepted and published by credible publishers. Also, although not guaranteed, some publishers and/or independent publications may be willing to accept this evaluation as a transferable review.
