Edanz Group Ltd, an English editing and publication support company established in 1995, provides professional academic English services to authors for whom English is a second language. Feedback from these authors has consistently shown that they value not only language editing, but also advice on how to overcome practical barriers to publishing research in international peer-reviewed journals. In this article, we outline some of these barriers and argue that editing service providers play an increasingly important role in levelling the playing field for authors for whom English is a second language.
