The Royal Society Journals: inspirational authors and ground breaking science

Since 1665, the Royal Society Journals have been publishing important scientific discoveries by the world's most eminent scientists. From Newton, Franklin and Faraday, through to Crick, Watson, Hodgkin, Hawking and Lonsdale, our authors have contributed to the discovery and dissemination of science, inspiring future generations to follow their footsteps. Today our journals continue to publish high quality, peer-reviewed content covering the full range of science and we encourage the submission of innovative and exciting new research from across the world.

Our translation services

Our translators offer both an expertise in scientific and professional translation to ensure that your manuscript accurately communicates every element of your paper in perfect English. Our goal is to ensure your paper is assessed for publication by what is written and not how it is written, and be no different from any paper written by a native English speaker.

Translation into English

This includes a professional translation and a quality control check for a range of content and languages. We specialize in translation from English to Chinese, and Chinese to English. Other language combinations: • Japanese to English • French to English • German to English • Spanish to English • Portuguese to English • Russian to English.

A separate quality control check is also carried out before returning your assignment to you.
