Pre-Submission Editing Services

AMS is pleased to provide the following links to professional English Language editing services. These can be thought of as "language polishing" services which some authors, particularly those for whom English is not the primary language, can use to improve the grammar, syntax, and flow of their manuscripts prior to submission to an AMS journal.

AMS has no connection or any reciprocal financial arrangements with any of these services. These are referrals only. Authors understand that these services are completely independent of AMS and the peer-review and editing process.
