(6 Sep 2021) Karger Publishers has started offering its authors an automated proofreading service from the company Writefull. Writefull uses AI-based language models to suggest language edits, enabling authors to improve the language of their manuscript before submission.
Authors submitting to Karger Publishers are invited to use Writefull to check the language of their manuscript as part of the submission process for 14 selected journals. If they accept the invitation, they will proceed to Writefull’s web page, where they can upload their document. Writefull then returns their document with language edits shown in Track Changes mode – enabling authors to accept, reject, or edit around Writefull’s suggestions before they continue with their submission. Thanks to this partnership, authors will benefit from a 15% discount on this service.
As Writefull’s language models have been developed using published journal papers, they offer language suggestions tailored to scientific writing. Writefull’s most recent version, released in early July, goes beyond traditional grammar checks, offering rewrites at sentence level.
