The Joint Institute (JI) office provides draft manuscript review and editing services for JI faculty. Our team can assist with proofreading for grammatical errors, formatting and design elements (e.g., figures, charts, visual abstracts) if needed. Allow a one-week turnaround time, possibly longer if design elements are required.
- Any JI faculty or researcher is eligible to use the service.
- Manuscripts must be based on JI-funded work.
- Must include credited authors from both U-M and PKUHSC.
- Manuscripts must include an acknowledgement of JI support.
- Manuscripts submitted for review must be in their final versions.
