Manuscript Editing Services

The Malawi Medical Journal expects that, prior to submission, aside from the technical aspects that are the main concern of peer reviewers, authors ensure that the language and grammar of their manuscripts are of a sufficient enough standard to allow reviewers to perform their duties without worrying about misinterpreting the text or being distracted by constant grammatical errors or unconventional modes of expression. If manuscripts are not of a minimum standard in terms of language and grammar, reviewers will be unwilling or unable to assess them in detail. For this reason we strongly suggest that, before submitting, authors either ask a colleague whose first language is English to review their papers for clarity, or they seek the services of a professional language editor or editing service.
