English-language editing before peer review

Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited after submission but before the review process.

English-language editing will:

  • Improve grammar, spelling, and punctuation
  • Improve clarity and resolve any ambiguity caused by poor phrasing
  • Improve the language style so it is appropriate for an academic journal.

Authors wishing to use a professional English-language editing service should make contact and arrange payment with the editing service of their choice directly. Use of an English-language editing supplier listed here is not mandatory, and will not guarantee acceptance or preference for publication in a CSIRO Publishing journal.


Reprints can be ordered prior to publication. An order form is sent to the corresponding author with final page proofs.

CSIRO Publishing supplies the corresponding authors with a free PDF of their paper upon publication. Authors may also order hardcopy reprints of their papers at the time they complete author corrections. Authors may create links to their papers from their personal webpages. All papers are also available from our website either by subscription or sale of individual papers.


The journal is indexed/abstracted in a wide variety of databases.


To submit your paper, please use our online journal management system ScholarOne Manuscripts.
