Research articles

We help you to frame, develop and publish impactful research articles.

Editorial assessment and feedback

We assess and provide feedback on content and presentation, as well as journal suitability. Specifically, we advise on whether the article:
• has a strong central message
• presents a coherent narrative and is well organized
• provides adequate context and highlights the significance
• contains evidence for all the claims made therein

Substantive editing

We edit your article in depth to sharpen its narrative and improve its overall structure and flow. Specifically, we:
• improve readability, remove repetition
• introduce or revise headings and subheadings
• identify gaps and suggest additional text and display items
• condense text into summaries (for example an abstract)

Other services

We also help to:
• develop informative cover letters
• interpret editorial decisions and respond to the editor and reviewers

Sustainability science area

Kimberly Nicholas

Associate Professor of Sustainability Science, Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS), Sweden
We provided editorial support on a paper that was published in PNAS.

“Elevate provided us with a very helpful overview of a draft manuscript (like a review from a thoughtful and constructive reviewer) as well as line-by-line commentary in the text. We had struggled with the framing of our paper, and the comments helped us find a clear way forward. I think the input from Elevate helped us achieve a smooth review process and eventual acceptance, and was particularly useful as a learning exercise for the early-career first author of the paper.”

Medicine and Health area

Guillermo Montoya

Professor and Research Director, The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR), Copenhagen, Denmark
We provided editorial support on several papers that have been published in prestigious journals such as Nature and Cell.

“Sometimes, when I write a manuscript, I am so deep into the topic that I can miss perspective. Elevate provide the perspective of an editor. Because they have not been involved in the study, their comments allow me to gauge how a non-specialist can or cannot follow the story. I would certainly recommend Elevate Scientific: their professionalism and their ability to help express some of the ideas are a great extra and improve how our work is conveyed. If people understand what you are talking about, they usually tend to value the work more.”
