A WSR Standard edit encompasses more time and consideration than a “language polish” or “copyedit”, which are generally minimalistic. Our Standard edit includes primarily:

  • Editing for English presentation (i.e., grammar, syntax)
  • Logical flow within paragraphs
  • Eloquence of style (field standard verbiage, economy of word use)
  • Suggestions for additional opportunities for improvement beyond the scope of a Standard edit may be provided as margin comments

Length reductions of ≤10% can usually be accommodated at this level (e.g. reduce 5000 words to 4500 words), unless there are deeper issues with the text that require more substantive editing.

This level is sufficient for most papers where non-native language is the primary issue. The editor will tell you if there are organizational/content problems beyond a Standard edit scope.

*Tables/figure editing is not included, but can be added on as a secondary service.

*NOT for machine translations: They are more difficult and time consuming than text constructed by English second language writers, and therefore require at least a Premium edit. Alternatively, you can submit your paper in your native language for a human Translation service.


All Standard edit service aspects, plus as need per individual case and time allowing:

  • Major revision/rewriting
  • Adherence to author instructions for formatting (client can select this option in the order form and indicate target journal)
  • Reorganization/correction of organizational problems
  • Removal of redundancy
  • Formatting and aesthetic/structural revision of tables and/or figures
  • Substantial (>10%) length reduction
  • Redevelopment of a paper into a different format (e.g. Intro-Methods-Results-Discussion into a Letter)

The editor will spend up to 200% Standard edit time for 150% cost, making the Premium edit a great value. Expect the editor to be able to deal with 2–5 of these issues, depending on depth of work (prioritized based on client instructions).


Similar to Premium edit service aspects, but with allowance for additional time (per quarter hour). For billing time, we err on the side of the client and you can specify a time cap at which point the editor would seek approval before spending more time.
