STUDY: AUTHOR SERVICE REQUEST
Francesca Picciaia is a researcher at the Department of Economics, Università degli Studi di Perugia, Italy. She submitted her manuscript – an historical case study analysing Luisa Spagnoli’s entrepreneurial life – to Emerald Publishing’s Journal of Management History. Her manuscript was returned with a request to revise.
“The English language, the organisation, the overly long sentences and the overly short paragraphs means that the paper – as currently written – would severely restrict readership.”
Francesca posted a request for editing help for her manuscript (6,000 words) on the Emerald Author Services page. After receiving quotes from 4 experts she agreed to a fee of US$213 with Patrick Findler, who is a highly-rated expert on Peerwith.

Patrick delivered his first edit within 4 days. Subsequent revisions followed and when the work was completed Francesca gave Patrick a 5-star rating and commented:
“Fully satisfied. Patrick is very professional. My paper was deeply revised perfectly in time.”
After resubmitting to the Journal of Management History Francesca was pleased to hear her article was accepted for publication: http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/pdfplus/10.1108/JMH-02-2017-0004
Peerwith foster’s collaboration by connecting experts with the aim of improving the quality of scientific output. The collaboration between Francesca and Patrick demonstrates how successful this type of collaboration can be. Francesca was completely satisfied with the service she received which resulted in her paper being published in the journal of her choice.
