Professional Editing Services
Papers must be written in English. The grammar does not have to be perfect, but articles will be desk rejected if the editor believes reading the paper will put an unfair burden on reviewers. Our publisher offers suggestions for professional editing services at http://www.oxfordlanguageediting.com.
