  • language editing: it is the author’s responsibility to present papers in an acceptable form, both in terms of grammar and expression. Authors should check their manuscript for typing errors, spelling, punctuation, etc. Particularly if English is not your first language, please make sure before submitting your manuscript that you have had an appropriate language check. This is not a mandatory step, but may help to ensure that the academic content of your paper is fully understood by journal editors and reviewers. If you would like information about professional help, we can refer you to reliable low-budget services. Authors are liable for all costs associated with language editing.
