Cambridge recommends that authors who are writing in English as a second language, and are unsure of the quality of their written English, have their manuscripts checked by a native English speaker before submission. This will ensure that the submissions can be judged exclusively on academic merit. You can do this by:
- Asking a native English speaking colleague to check your work.
- Using one of many available third party editorial services (see below for details of our Cambridge service).
Please note that having your work language edited does not in any way endorse your work for publication – your edited manuscript will still be subject to the same editorial assessment at submission stage.
