Using your completed manuscript, an editor will create a cover letter to send with your submission.

After your paper has been reviewed and you have made any revisions requested by the journal editor and/or reviewers, an Editoracle editor will edit your response letter and revision to ensure that you have appropriately addressed all the concerns that could keep the paper from being published. This service includes editing of the revision and of the response letter.

Book proposal development

Science authors tend to be experts in their fields, not in book publishing. The process of writing a good book proposal is far more complex than most authors anticipate. Give us your content, and we'll craft a first-rate book proposal that helps you draw favorable attention to your manuscript. We can also help you decide which publisher is the best match for your work.
