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; PRS does not recommend one firm over another; however, we can confirm
that Wolters Kluwer Author Services* is a trustworthy service provider.
