"I am a PhD student whose native language is not English. I wanted to submit a manuscript to a journal. Knowing that I'm an early-career researcher, I knew that I would need to have my manuscript copyedited prior to submission. I used Wendy Belcher's book Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks to edit my manuscript, and in Belcher's book, Mafoko Manuscript Services was recommended for copyediting. I contacted them, and I couldn't be more pleased. Mary Lederer was responsive with ample information about the process of copyediting. She's an expert in APA formatting and citation, and she made sure all sources were cited properly. In addition, Mary saw the strengths in my manuscript and helped me use proper language and syntax to articulate the point of my research. I also utilized her services for two conference proceedings submissions; she was even more responsive and respectful of the timeline. I will certainly continue to use her services throughout my study and beyond. I highly recommend Mafoko Manuscript Services to other PhD students who are interested in submitting high-quality work."
