    Hi everyone,
    As researchers, what is the importance of English Editing and proofreading in your life? Would you prefer to take a specific editing service or self-edit your document? Which is more beneficial?

    As an native English speaker you really should be proofreading and editing your own work. The only time I've ever come across it is when we have had foreign collaborators who have English as a second or third language. Often the British collaborators do the proofing and editing and editing services aren't used much in the UK.

    . Would you prefer to take a specific editing service or self-edit your document? Which is more beneficial?
    Brandy, these questions are basically the same, otherwise known as a tautology. Who is going to prefer one and then pick the other as more beneficial? Are you offering an editing service? I’ll recommend not using the service if the answer is yes. No hard feelings, thanks.

    Hi, thanks for your response. There is a huge difference between editing service that we take by hiring professional editors and self-editing our own work. How come it is the same?

    We know what we are doing... Also the journal supplies editorial assistance after submission. I've never paid anyone to edit any of my papers or reports and seem to have done OK... Like zinjanthropos, I'm getting suspicious that this is just a prelude to spam for your editing services...
