Manuscript Formatting Service

 

Why Does the Formatting matter?

Since the main value of any scientific research is held within its content, the formal side of an article may seem less important. However, in practice of research publications, manuscript formatting appears to be a critical sort of matter. Properly formatted paper allows the readers and reviewers navigate it easily, find the essential information, and comprehend it the most effectively. More important in practical terms, the absolute majority of scientific journals require the submitted papers to be formatted according to their own guidelines. Even the most valuable research cannot be accepted by a journal without proper formatting.

Why Choose Manuscript Formatting Service?

Almost every peer-reviewed journal requires manuscripts to be formatted, when submitted according to its formal guidelines. This includes font choice, spacing, margin size, tables’ layout, figures’ placement, footers, correct references style and so on. Regardless of how significant and valuable the paper’s scientific content is, the journal will never acknowledge it without proper formatting.

 

Who needs the manuscript formatting service?

Our manuscript formatting service is an appropriate choice for researchers with extensive research projects. Even the most experienced researcher may require assistance with time-consuming tasks of manuscript formatting. Furthermore, beginners may have significant difficulties in this area, therefore, it is advisable to involve professionals in this task. Almost any research author planning to submit a paper to Scopus or WoS journals should consider acquiring manuscript formatting and submission services. We will format your manuscript to suit the requirements of the desired journal, so you can save time and energy for pure scientific activity.

 

 

What kind of difficulties can you face while formatting and submitting the manuscript by yourself?

The most obvious issue is a significant time and effort cost, even if you are used to particular journal’s guidelines and learned them well. Furthermore, if you are less experienced and unfamiliar with certain journal’s guidelines, you face a risk of blatantly failing the formatting rules, and editorial board wouldn’t accept the submission until the formatting is complete. Sometimes formatting and submitting procedures may require specific knowledge of MS Word software or online technologies that narrow-specified scholars may not be aware of.

 

Styles of references and other formatting aspects

Formatting and submission procedures can be complicated because they vary across journals. For example, several referencing styles are largely standardized, but they still include variations (parenthetical styles – APA, Chicago, Harvard; numerical styles – IEEE, ACS, Vancouver; note styles – Bluebook, Chicago, OSCOLA). Even with established standards, formatting references needs a significant amount of diligence and concentration.

 

Parenthetical citation style: You include identifying details of the source in parentheses in the text – usually the author’s last name and the publication date, plus a page number if relevant (author-date). Sometimes the publication date is omitted (author-page).

 

Numerical citation style: You include a number in brackets or in superscript, which corresponds to an entry in your numbered reference list.

 

Note citation style: You include a full citation in a footnote or endnote, which is indicated in the text with a superscript number or symbol.

  • headings;
  • presence of all required sections;
  • title page;
  • word count;
  • number of figures and tables;
  • appropriate placement of tables and figures
