Latest review

First review round: 10.0 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Having published multiple manuscripts with about 40 different journals, my experience with European Science Editing is really great. The journal has a strong editorial team who are very enthusiastic and whole-hearted in supporting authors in improving their manuscripts. The journal has particular strengths in editing manuscripts and submitters can enjoy their expertise and learn much from them, no matter how much previous experience. If I have relevant manuscripts I will certainly submit them to Eur Sci Ed and strongly recommend the journal to those who care about topics in scientific publishing, research integrity, peer review, science editing, and the like.
