Presubmission 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 their first or primary language, can use to improve the grammar, syntax, and flow of their manuscripts prior to submission to an AMS journal.

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