English Language Editing

Many researchers who are not native English speakers often find it hard to get published due to their manuscripts being rejected as the English is not good enough. The poor English stops much valuable research work from being published; the data and results are more than suitable for publication, but they are hidden behind the inadequate English. Authors are need to write the manuscript in English (US) with proper care of sentences construction and any grammatical error/s which make it suitable for review and publication by IRJP
