The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) recently launched a new service called JASEdit. The service provides three levels of review for authors who submit to the Journal of Animal Science and can be accessed pre- or post-submission to JAS.
The three levels include:
- Formatting: Authors may submit manuscripts and have freelance tech editors prepare the manuscript in JAS style and form. Following formatting, authors will have the option of reviewing and submitting the manuscript or having JAS move the formatted manuscript directly into review.
- Technical editing and language review: This will include formatting services, technical editing and fixing associated language issues. Following this service authors will have the option of reviewing and submitting the manuscript or having JAS move the manuscript directly into review.
- Full technical edit and writing consultation: At this level technical editors will perform services 1 and 2 and a freelance writing consultant will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the article with the author via email.
The service launched on 1 July 2016. Pricing and details can be found at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jasedit.
