  • All Submitted Manuscripts Must be Professionally Copy Edited
    All manuscripts submitted for consideration to IGI Global journals for prospective publication must be professionally copy edited, as not only does this substantially improve the quality of the manuscript and its chances of being accepted, but it also greatly shortens the review and revision process times. Scholarly journals are known to reject at least 80% or more of manuscripts they receive due to poor quality, specifically poor English grammar and writing style, and oftentimes do not even pass the preliminary review stage by the Editors-in-Charge prior to its submission to the review process. To aid in professional copy editing of your manuscript prior to its submission to the journal of your choice, IGI Global offers a variety of affordable author services including Copy Editing & Proofreading, Scientific & Scholarly Editing, etc. Additionally, the amount paid for author services on the manuscript will be deducted from the Open Access Article Processing Charge (APC) when an author opts to publish the manuscript under OA with IGI Global.
