The commission

Language editing and copyediting of two issues per year


Innovation in the Social Sciences is an online-only, open-access journal that began publication in 2023. Bourchier has been providing copyediting and language support since the first issue. We download the articles from Brill’s online platform, copyedit them – focusing closely on language and sense – and then work with the authors and the journal editor to ensure that they are clear, concise, and ready to move smoothly on to typesetting.

‘The professional and meticulous editorial services offered by Bourchier have greatly enhanced our work in Innovation in the Social Sciences, a newly established international journal. Their team’s expertise and attention to detail have significantly improved the quality of our publications.’
