Abstract editing is very similar to manuscript editing, with one exception. Our experience shows that scientists tend to say too much in manuscripts but make too many shortcuts in abstracts, making the abstracts incoherent and, yes, too abstract.
One reason for these shortcuts is that scientists write abstracts after writing manuscripts, a natural sequence of work. When writing the abstract, then, everything is clear for the author—but not necessarily for the reader who has not read the manuscript. Another reason is that most authors want to say too much in this short form of writing. We will be happy to help you edit your abstract to make it both well-written and coherent.
We can also rewrite your abstract to make it structured, but only with advanced editing (see below). You may check prices and times here.
What we will do with your abstract:
This is our basic service, in which we will edit your abstract in only one round. If the abstract is well-written—that is, everything is clear and understandable—one round might be enough. Otherwise, we might need at least one more round, in which case you might consider choosing advanced editing, in which we will edit the abstract three times. If, however, you choose basic editing, you can ask for additional rounds (see pricing for details).
We will edit your abstract in three rounds. This will give us an opportunity to make it self-standing (a key characteristics of a good abstract), logical, and well-written; also, we'll have more time to improve its style. After each round of editing, we will ask you to check our work and answer questions.
If you wish us to rewrite the abstract to make it structured, then you will need to choose advanced editing.
