DURHAM, N.C., USA (August 13, 2020)-- This week, Research Square launched the beta version of their artificial intelligence (AI) based editing service. The technology, built on AJE’s 16 years of editing experience, assesses English-language grammar, spelling, and phrasing in scientific manuscripts and provides authors with a language quality score and an automated language edit.
Previously available through publisher and institution trials, the beta marks the first time the technology has been made available directly to authors. The company is a force in providing researcher solutions entering a new phase of growth, both in terms of automation as well as innovating in the preprint space with the Research Square platform.
“We believe our technology to be the new industry ‘gold standard.’ These tools were trained on more than 500,000 papers edited by our immensely talented team. As such, I’m confident authors will see that quality reflected in the edits they receive.” said Sarah Taylor, Chief Operating Officer at Research Square.
The tool makes AJE’s quality AI editing services accessible to researchers in all corners of the world and is the next step in a series of developments to help authors improve the quality of their writing.
“This is the first of several developments underway to integrate AI tools into the Research Square platform. Language quality is often a factor in revision and rejection decisions by journal editors,” says company President, Rachel Burley. “Helping authors to improve the quality of writing in their manuscript before submitting it to a journal will increase their chances of a faster peer review process and acceptance.”
Through the end of August, authors submitting preprints directly to the Research Square platform can take advantage of these tools for free in exchange for their feedback.
