My name is Melby K. Z. Huertas, 46 years old, I’m an adjunct professor in Marketing at FEI (Fundação Educacional Inaciana Pe. Sabóia de Medeiros) in São Paulo, Brazil.
I was asked by the editor of Emerald‘s journal to proofread my paper before submission. He said, your paper is interesting, but in this format, it would probably be rejected. After the editor’s response to my initial submission it became clear to me that without a professional revision, it would be impossible to publish my research. That is when I first learned about Peerwith and I immediately signed up.
THE SERVICE REQUEST
The service required was a Manuscript Review, the subject was Consumer Behavior and Marketing Communications, number of words around 12 thousand and the budget was US$300. The where no special requirements, but I sent to the Expert other information: the author’s guidelines and a paper from the target journal.
My request was posted on 29th Sep 2017. The first reaction that I got of an Expert was immediate(!) and during the same day I was contacted by 4 Experts interested in knowing more about my paper. I was hoping to find Experts that perfectly match my theme and research methods. The ideal expert would have an extended relationship until the publication of the paper. In total, six Experts replied to my request. I took my decision based on the quote they gave and the adherence between my manuscript and the Expert’s background.
I ended up choosing John Acker as the right Expert for my work. He is a good Expert and did a great job with my manuscript. He is extremely fast and precise. He contacted me to clarify his doubts and he read my manuscript carefully. I would definitely recommend John Acker, in fact, I already have recommended him many times to my network.
The communication with the Expert was immediate. I wasn’t sure about hiring the service yet and the Experts were already ready to start. The process to talk and negotiate with the Experts is easy, I did not encounter any difficulties.
I was especially amazed by the speed and professionalism. John and I stayed in contact during the service, using the Peerwith platform. The Expert had to clarify conceptual doubts and contacted me. The service was finished within one week! Long before the deadline! The work was done in three days. I was at a conference and I couldn’t respond to the Expert. He had to wait, not me.
I’m very satisfied with the service and especially with the efficiency and speed of the service, which I already told my friends about. But I especially liked the result, the paper was really improved and it looks professional.
The Expert justified all their general decisions. For example, change of the person writing because of the journal’s style. Every change was explained. However, changes after journal’s reviewers make a new English revision necessary. I think that this service extension must be considered as part of the service, charging more for it, of course. So I would like an additional service: the revision of the second version of the manuscript.
Congratulations! I’ll definitely keep using this service.
