An author who would like assistance with English grammar and usage prior to submitting their manuscript to the EI Magazine for review, can now go to http:// www.prof-editing.com/ieee/ to submit a manuscript for copy editing. This service is provided by SPi, which has been carrying out content tagging and editing services to IEEE Publishing Operations since 2002. The SPi copy editors will edit for grammar, usage, organization, and clarity, querying potentially substantive revisions as necessary. An author can use the service, at their own expense. Cost estimates are available immediately on line. Edited manuscripts will generally be returned to the author within two weeks of submission.
