Authors who are not native speakers of English who
submit manuscripts to international journals often receive negative comments
from referees or editors about the English–language usage in their manuscripts,
and these problems can contribute to a decision to reject a paper. To help
reduce the possibility of such problems, we encourage authors to consider
seeking English-language revision assistance. There are many sources authors
can turn to for such assistance, including partnering with a native English-speaking
co-author and hiring third party author services firms. There are many firms
authors can turn to; Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - Global Open does not recommend one firm over
another, however we can confirm that Wolters Kluwer Author Services* is a
trustworthy service provider.
