About Us

KPM Science and Language Editing was established by Gearoid Kennedy, a former senior manager with Elsevier. With twenty years experience in the publishing business he understands the needs of authors, editors and publishers within the Scientific, Medical and Technical (STM) community. Kennedy has much experience of online submission as well as author and editor support within large publishing organizations. The company ethos is caring for customers.

We will help you to reach your goals regardless of your location and native language.

We are a company of highly skilled, subject specific, STM research editors. We specialise in the editing of research work for authors wishing to publish their research in English language, peer reviewed journals and books.

UK and US English editing is available

Alarmed by the rejection rates recorded during the peer review process due to poor English, Kennedy founded the KPM Science and Language Editing to allow research be judged more on its own merits and not on the quality of written English.

It has been proven that Accepting Editors pay less attention to research articles written in less than perfect English. We help to remedy this by providing a cost effective and easy to use service.

KPM Science and Language Editing commit to:

1.   Dealing expertly with the academic and scientific aspects of your document.

2.   Delivering of the highest level of English language expertise,

3.   Responding  quickly and efficiently to all requests,

The Value of Our Service

Research has shown that grammatical mistakes and improper use of English create a negative bias in the readers' mind. Research articles with poor quality English are generally rejected immediately, or are rejected at peer review stage.

Coates, Sturgeon, Bohannan, Pasini: Language and publication in 'Cardiovascular Research' articles. Cardiovascular Research 2002.

Even more important than the biases of the journal readers are the views of the Journal Editors. There have been numerous studies suggesting that poorly written papers and submissions from non-anglophone authors are at a distinct disadvantage in the screening and review process of academic journals (Coates et al. 2002, Radford et al. 1999, Eisenberg et al. 2002, Bordage 2001). A study by Coates et al. on 120 papers submitted to Cardiovascular Research found clear evidence that writing quality, specifically the number of English language mistakes in a submitted paper, had an influence on whether the paper was accepted for publication.

Editing Services

Our editors WILL:

·   Correct spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors.

·   Check for use of problems in tense and conjugations.

·   Eliminate improper language use and word choice.

·   Make your document read naturally and professionally.

We will NOT:

·   Edit for research content - that is the job of the journal's peer reviewers.

Thus the level of service will depend on the individual authors requirements. This is why we issue tailored  quotations to meet the needs of each individual paper. You will know exactly how much you will pay before you submit your manuscript.

Only your Editor and a KPM Managing Editor will ever see your submission, and we will never share your submission or your personal information with anyone outside of KPM.

Each one of our Editors is required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement before they see your submission. This document is a legally binding contract that goes a step beyond the trust based system of peer reviewed journal submission. The Confidentiality Agreement ensures that our Editors cannot, under any circumstances, share your personal details or manuscript. If an Editor reveals any part of your submission to a third party, legal action can be taken based on this contract. You may view the full Confidentiality Agreement here.
