Author Assistance Editorial Services

While all of our Editorial Services aim to assist authors, this new category of services takes an extra step, providing professional guidance to authors during the crucial revision stage following a core editorial service. First-time authors, especially, may find that working with the necessary editing technology and addressing an editor's every change and question can be time-consuming and daunting. The following services offer the ultimate in support to authors involved in this critical stage of the editorial process.

Quality Review

After you review and revise your edited manuscript, you may want an editor to check your work to ensure that you've done it correctly and haven't created new errors in the process. Our Quality Review provides a check of your work to make sure your manuscript is editorially sound before it goes into production—for a fraction of the price of your original edit.

Editorial Assistant

Going through an edited manuscript can sometimes be a time-consuming process for even the most experienced author, requiring him to make decisions on each of the revisions, comments, and recommendations. For our busiest authors and for authors who may be unsure of their own ability to make the needed changes, iUniverse offers the Editorial Assistant service, in which a professional editor handles the editing work for the author.

Your editorial assistant will review each change and suggestion given during the full editorial service and take action on each one, accepting changes, rewriting sentences, resolving queries, and handling other revisions as suggested by the original editor. This service is ideal for authors who approve of most of the editor’s work on their manuscript and do not wish to work with tracked changes in their manuscript.

Please note: There may be some questions or comments from the editor that you, the author, will need to address before moving forward with this service.
