Our proofreading service increases PhD students' chances of publication
PhD students at DTU come from all over the world, and many of them are non-native English speakers. However, they are still required to publish their research in English. Therefore, DTU Compute and GlobalDenmark have signed an agreement on a proofreading service for PhD students to ensure that their research papers are not rejected because of the language level. The cost of proofreading a typical research article is around DKK 2000, and if that's all that stands between getting a paper accepted or rejected, well, that's money well spent.
Extensive report proofread and delivered same day
The Danish Institute for Human Rights needed to proofread a 60-page report on discrimination against Afro-Danes. The Institute has very competent proofreaders, but time was short. The report had to be published very quickly and the Institute's internal staff did not have the time to proofread it themselves. They called GlobalDenmark, which put two people on the case and delivered the proofread report later that same day.
Linguistic editing of research articles
Many researchers at VIVE use GlobalDenmark's language editing service before submitting their manuscript for peer review. Our language editing service goes a step beyond our proofreading service - when we edit, we often help the author rewrite parts of the manuscript based on our comments about ambiguities in language, structure and content.
Christophe Kolodziejczyk, senior researcher at VIVE, describes the benefits of involving GlobalDenmark in the final review of a research manuscript:
"I've had the pleasure of having my manuscripts edited by Mark Harvey Simpson from GlobalDenmark on several occasions. Mark has helped me improve the readability and consistency of my manuscripts, as well as the logical consistency of my arguments. For one of my manuscripts, I had the opportunity of benefiting from Mark's services for both the initial submission and the resubmission of the same manuscript. Both times the readability of my articles had improved greatly. For the first time I received a referee report commenting that the article was well written."
