How can Peerwith increase your chances of being published?
Peerwith encourages you to be selective:
Unlike other major copy-editing-service providers, Peerwith operates on a peer-to-peer basis. Authors can choose exactly who should edit their work and pick the best person for the job, based on their own criteria. The major benefits for authors include: seeing the editors’ skills, background, and reviews/comments left by previous authors; and being able to engage in a dialogue with the editor to ensure the best possible job is done including, if necessary, revisions to the edited work.
Communication is Key:
From an editor’s perspective, this ability to engage in a dialogue with authors is crucial; it helps me do a better job, based on the author’s requirements, and allows me to improve my skills with every paper or thesis I edit. It also allows me only to offer my services for work that I know I can do well. I’m lucky to have worked with some fascinating authors and have had plenty of great feedback but this would not have been possible without this dialogue. I know the extent of my knowledge and skills and if a particular job is not one I feel I can do justice to, I can simply say so and in fact usually suggest other more suitable Peerwith experts.
As well the transparency and clarity afforded by the platform, Peerwith also provides complete payment security, both for authors and editors. Authors pay Peerwith once a quote from an editor has been accepted, but the payment is not released to the editor by Peerwith until the work is done to the author’s satisfaction. So, the author knows the work will be done satisfactorily and I, as an editor, know I will get paid on time and not have to chase invoices. Win-win!
