Copyright concerns?

What does Maxafeau Editing Services do about copyrighted or copied materials within a document?

We will highlight all material that we suspect requires copyrights to be obtained, in order to ensure that the authors conform with the editorial policies of the journal of choice. If we suspect that the manuscript represents copied or plagiarized material, we will promptly return the original, unedited manuscript to the submitting author.

Do I lose copyright when I submit to Maxafeau Editing Services?

No. Authors (or journals) retain copyright of their material. However, Maxafeau Editing Services holds on to the copyright of all edits made to the manuscript until full reception of the payment. Once services are paid in full, copyright of these edits is transferred to the authors (or copyright holder) of the manuscript.
