Supplemental  Services

Word Reduction   - $6 per 100 words

Up to 10% word reduction is included in the regular rates. After that, additional words can be removed at the rate of $6 per 100 words.

Extended Reader's Report  - $20

A detailed reader's report analyzing your introduction, theoretical discussion, methodological discussion, evidence and results, and overall sequence. This report identifies any structural/conceptual issues with the paper (beyond the scope of basic editing) which could cause trouble during peer-review. (Included in Blue).

Email Enquiries   - $20

Keep me on retainer with five follow-up emails to ask short questions about editing and grammar as you continue to make revisions throughout the publication process. (Included in Silver)

Peer-Review Revisions Evaluation  - $40

An evaluation of how the journal’s peer-review requests have been implemented in the revision. The report highlights areas where the feedback can be better integrated to improve the likelihood of acceptance. Additionally, I will address any peer-review comments concerning language and clarity in my edits. (Included in Blue).

Zoom Your Paper   - $80

A 40-minute Zoom call to discuss the edits made, the strengths & weaknesses of your manuscript, and the next steps in the publication process.

 

Avoidable Fees

Rush Fee

The Rush Fee adds 10% to the subtotal for each day before the standard turnaround time that the manuscript needs to be returned.

Example:

The standard turnaround for a service costing $100 is 7 business days. You need the document in 5 business days. That's two business days early, so 20% (in this case, $20) is added for a total bill of $120.

Weekend Fee

There is a $50 flat fee charged for work that must be done on a Saturday or Sunday (for example, because it was submitted on a Thursday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday).

 

Discounts

Graduate Students & Unemployed Scholars: 45% off all services

Adjunct Faculty: 20% off all services

The (Not-So) Fine Print

These discounts are 'honor system' based and automatically applied on your invoice. During site-wide promotions, either the promotional or the standard discount can be applied. The Grad Student discount cannot be applied to products on the Grad Student Specials Page.
