About Us

ACS Authoring Services is dedicated to helping researchers improve and polish their manuscript to increase the likelihood of being published.

At ACS, we know how important it is for researchers to publish their work more quickly so they can get back to what matters most: the science. Our services are crafted with that goal in mind.

ACS Authoring Services provides you with high-quality services from subject-expert editors to help you prepare your manuscript for publication, regardless of which journal you choose for submission.

Our editors have completed or are completing an advanced degree in one of the number of disciplines at the intersections of chemistry, biology, physics, and medicine, and therefore have the scientific background to thoroughly understand your manuscript’s subject matter.

When you submit your manuscript to ACS Authoring Services it will be matched with a highly qualified Editor within your area of study.

Don’t let language issues be a barrier to the publication of your research. With the help of ACS Authoring Services, you can present your paper to the world in perfect, publication-ready English.

Our Quality Guarantee

We guarantee that our editing service will improve the quality of the language in your manuscript. If your paper is rejected by your journal for English language errors after using our service, we will re-edit your document for free.

Any material added to your paper after using our editing service is not included in the guarantee, so we recommend that you submit the final draft of your paper. We will provide a Word document file showing tracked changes and containing comments from your Language Editors.
