We would like to highlight that the University offers editorial provision to provide as much support to researchers as possible in the lead up to REF. The University recognises that professional editorial support can, in some cases, enhance the quality of manuscripts, such that, their REF assessment could be increased from a 3* to a 4* paper.
The project has been trialled and we have had nothing but positive support for the use of these services:
"We were really happy with Jane’s edits on our recent PNAS and Plant Physiology papers. She helped a lot to polish the text and make it more accessible for a wider audience, as well as giving constructive comments on figure presentation and clarity of figure legends." John Christie (Professor of Photobiology, Institute of Molecular Cell & Systems Biology)"
