Journals do not provide free language support prior to or during peer review. If you are interested in using an English Language service, Sage does offer an optional paid service called Sage Language Services. The service provides additional help with editing, translating, and formatting your manuscript before submission. You are not required to use this service, nor does the use of it guarantee acceptance.


All accepted manuscripts will undergo light copyediting for minor errors and to ensure they follow journal style. However, journals do not provide developmental copyediting. 


Please see Sage Author Services for additional offers.
