We have tried to anticipate some of the frequently asked questions from our clients here. If you cannot find your answers here, please feel free to contact us for more information.
1. I have a deadline coming soon and my manuscript is longer than than the 1000 words per day turnaround stated at your website. Will Editorial Centrum still be able to help me meet my deadline?
Yes, tight deadlines can be negotiated for an extra fee. Contact us as soon as you can and we’ll do my best to help you meet your deadline.
2. How many times will my manuscript be edited?
All manuscripts are offered 3 reviews by Editorial Centrum in the the package, under the conditions that only amendments highlighted by our editor, and that no major additions to the original manuscript, are made after the first and second reviews. If you wish to have your manuscript reviewed first in order to submit to your supervisor or other authors before finalizing the content for submission, the final manuscript will be charged at a special rate of 50% of the charges for the pre-final manuscript.
3. Does Editorial Centrum also verify the medical/scientific facts of my manuscript for accuracy?
Unfortunately, Editorial Centrum offers only English editing services. In addition, being specialised in English editing of health research papers, we also check the spelling and punctuation of medical jargons for accuracy and correctness. There are editing companies, however, that verify medical/scientific facts using a science editor. Try searching with the key words, "science editor", on the internet for these companies.
4.Does Editorial Centrum edit manuscripts that are non-medically related?
Yes! In fact, my foundation degree is in the Social Sciences, in particular, Social Work and Psychology. I have edited a number of doctorate dissertations in psychology and political science, research papers on political science and organisational behaviour, and more recently, an academic book publication in political science, Prisms on the Golden Pagoda. Have a look at the Other Works under Portfolio of the website.
5. How do I submit the manuscript to you for editing?
Fill in the contact form under Contact at our website and we will get in touch with you via email. After finding out from you more details about what you need and filling you in with more details about our editing service, you may send your manuscript via email.
6. How do I pay?
Editorial Centrum accepts payment via ATM, cheque, bank transfers and PayPal. Upon completion of the last review, we will send you an invoice to request for your payment within 60 days. Upon receipt of payment, we will send you a receipt as an acknowledgement.
7. Do the charges include GST (Goods & Services Tax; applicable to Singapore only)?
No, it doesn't! What you see at our website is what you will see on your invoice, unless you have requested for an express review (see FAQ No. 1) or otherwise negotiated in our correspondence prior to commencing the editing process.
