We have a staff of professional editors with extensive experience available to edit most types of writing. We do not edit class assignments.
Once you have submitted your document(s) for editing, you will be directed to our administrative email address. Please type "Editing Request Submitted" in the subject line and put your name and email address in the message. Tammy Cox, our Administrative Assistant, will contact you to discuss your editing requirements and help you set up your initial payment. Once payment is received, the minimum time for editing turnaround is five (5) working days. This does NOT include weekends or holidays. If a paper is needed in four (4) days or fewer, a rush fee of $50 will be charged.
Please note: Not all submissions will be accepted for editing. There are times when no editor is available, there are too many papers in the queue, or the submitted material is not yet ready to be edited. In this case, one of the WSIP editors will provide a written explanation regarding what needs to be done to the paper in order for it to be resubmitted.
WSIP editors specialize in line editing (i.e. grammar, punctuation, overal clarity), reference styles, and basic formatting. We may offer minor insights, suggestions, or questions about content and organzation. Copyright and reprint permissions are the responsibility of the author.
Manuscripts should be submitted as .doc, .docx, or .rtf files only; images may be submitted either as individual .jpg/.jpeg, .png, or .tif/.tiff files or in a separate .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf file.
Tables and Figures:
Please do not include tables or figures within the body of your manuscript; the manuscript should contain only text. Upload any tables in a separate .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. Upload any figures (e.g., maps, graphs, diagrams, photos, etc.) separately as .jpg/.jpeg, .png, or .tif/.tiff files--or as images within a separate Word or PDF document. Indicate in the body of your manuscript where tables and figures will go, including the text for their captions (e.g., "Place Figure 2. 'Diagram of gene isolation process using xxx technology' here"). We will insert the tables and figures and format their captions.
Headings, Table of Contents, Lists of Figures/Tables, Running Head:
Please provide a separate list of the headings and subheadings used in your manuscript, indicating their levels (e.g., Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.) and how you would like them to be formatted, if you know (e.g., standard APA heading formatting—see pp. 62-64 in 6th edition of APA publication manual; MLA; AMA; per department guidelines; custom; "not sure, please contact"; etc.). Do not pre-format headings, captions, or running head/pagination (though you may indicate how you would like the running head—see APA style—phrased and where you would like page number to be positioned on the page).
If you have any questions, please call our main office at (520) 621-5849 or 5848.
