Fraudulent Certificates of Proofreading – note to authors and journal editors

URGENT NOTE TO ALL JOURNAL EDITORS AND ACADEMIC AUTHORS: most unfortunately, we have been alerted to the fact that a number of academics based in Kazakhstan have been fraudulently copying and attempting to reproduce our PDF Certificates of Proofreading, then sending these fake documents along with their papers to academic journals. We would urge all journal editors to contact our Admin Team directly at [email protected] to confirm the authenticity of each certificate supplied with any paper submission.

As a result of this, it is with regret that we will no longer be issuing PDF Certificates of Proofreading directly to authors. We can however supply confirmation of authenticity directly to journal editors subject to all GDPR (2018) checks and author authorization – full details of how to request this will be supplied on return of proofread manuscripts.
