Research Square Adds High-Powered Automated Editing Service for Preprint Authors

DURHAM, N.C., USA (November 19, 2020)--Following a successful beta in August, Research Square has directly integrated a new automated editing service that is capable of making high-quality technical manuscript edits in just 20 minutes. The feature is available for all authors on the platform.

The AI-based service is powered by AJE (American Journal Experts) and was trained using more than 500,000 papers representing millions of subject-specific edits by their team of academic experts, who hold advanced degrees across many scientific disciplines. 

“Our automated editing service is based on more than 15 years of work by our immensely talented editors,” said Julie Kaplan, Product Director at Research Square Company. “The quality, trust, and confidence we’ve earned from more than 2.5 million authors across 192 countries is built into this service.”

Authors who upload their preprints to Research Square will receive a free language quality score. Then, for a small fee, they can download their edited manuscripts  before submitting them to journals or posting them on the platform for comment by the research community. 

Kaplan says the  service is capable of highly complex edits. Unlike other AI editing tools and services, it can reorganize entire sentences while editing for grammar, diction, clarity, consistency, phrasing, punctuation, spelling, and more. 

“This service is revolutionary. Without direct human help, it can quickly and significantly improve the quality of authors’ manuscripts and increase their chances of getting published in quality journals,” said Shashi Mudunuri, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Research Square Company. “It’s a true product of our mission: to make research communication faster, fairer, and more useful.”

Mudunuri says this service will be one of many steps toward technology-based services. “We will continue  our focus on innovation and technology as we empower current and next generation researchers,” he said.
