Step-by-Step Guide

Have your manuscript fully edited before submitting it for publication...

Common Ground Research Networks is pleased to offer editing services for authors who would like to have their work professionally edited. In some cases our publishing department may recommend that a book be professionally edited as a condition of publication.

What We Do

For $0.05 USD per word, one of our in-house copy editors will:

  • Correct spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors;
  • Revise for clarity, readability, logic, awkward word choice, and phrasing; and
  • Check for typos and formatting inconsistencies.

What We Don’t Do
  • Add content to your book.
  • Verify references.

What We Need From You:
  • Your manuscript, abstract, and author bio-note.

Our Copyeditors:

Common Ground’s copyeditors are all native English speakers with extensive editing experience and excellent communication skills.

The Process:
  1. Contact us to express your interest in having your article edited.
  2. The Publishing team will review your article and provide you with a quote.
  3. Once you accept the quote, the Managing Editor will assign a copyeditor to your manuscript.
  4. You will receive a copy of your edited manuscript via email.


Please note that this service is not mandatory for publication in a Common Ground Research Networks journal. Using this service does not guarantee acceptance for publication, nor are you obliged to submit your edited manuscript to a Common Ground Research Networks journal.
