Manuscript Formatting

We can help you format your manuscript to meet the exact specifications of your target journal, giving you more time to devote to your research.

We will also check the accuracy of your references and ensure that your title, running head, abstract, main text, and figure legends comply with the journal’s word count restrictions and indicate if further revisions are required.

FAQs

What is the difference between formatting and editing?

Our formatters do not perform language editing (correction of grammar, phrasing, and word choice errors). Instead, they ensure that your manuscript is in agreement with journal guidelines. This includes layout; font; spacing between sections and lines of text; citations and references; formatting of headings and a check to ensure that all required sections are present; title page check; checking of word count, image number, and reference number limits and noting overages; and ensuring appropriate placement of tables and figures.

My manuscript was previously formatted by AJE, but now I need to submit to a different journal. Can you re-format my manuscript for a new journal?

If you originally purchased Premium Editing or Translation as well as Manuscript Formatting for your paper, free reformatting is included. Free reformatting for a new journal is not included with Standard Editing or with a Formatting-only purchase.

My manuscript contains tables. Do I need to order Figure Formatting?

Yes, if you want us to format your tables. Our Figure Formatting service can help you prepare or format tables.
