Why should I consider editing before I submit it for possible publication? TOP
Requirements for English-language journals are very different from those of many journals published in other languages. We are very skilled at working with authors to prepare for submission to English-language nursing journals, and to provide recommendations on fit of articles with journal aims and scope, formatting, etc. Our clients have found that working with us to revise their manuscripts greatly increases its chances of being accepted for publication.
We will work with individuals to ensure that writing is consistent with the expectations of English-language publications. We are proficient at removing redundancy and unnecessary content from their manuscripts, without sacrificing essential content.

What is the purpose of AEN Peer Review Services? TOP
Our customers have found that papers, which were previously rejected by journals, have been accepted once they have revised their manuscript based on our peer review recommendations. We also believe that use of this service – especially for novice authors or those publishing in English when it is not their primary language – can shorten submission to publication time by addressing issues prior to article review by specific journals.
Do you have nurse translators? TOP
We do, and we also use professional translators in coordination with nurse editors who are proficient in Spanish and Portuguese.

Translation is a subjective process. so using a second translator to verify the translation is the best way to preserve the author's original meaning. If you are comfortable verifying the translation yourself, you may choose our standard translation service.
