ABOUT PREPSS

Pre-Publication Support Service (PREPSS) provides manuscript development and writing support to health researchers from around the globe. The world needs these researchers and their science, but we can't learn from them unless they get the word out about their findings. The service works with authors to improve their manuscripts to be competitive submissions for publication in peer-reviewed academic journals. PREPSS provides a range of services including on-site training, pre-writing data consultation, guidance on selecting a journal, multiple rounds of content and methods peer review, as well as copy editing.
