Language quality

This check ensures that the manuscript language quality is good enough for review.

AIRA scans the manuscript using an algorithmic language rating. The manuscript will not be sent to review if the language quality is insufficient. The authors will be asked to make appropriate revisions to proceed with the review. If the language quality is not perfect but suitable for review, we pass the manuscript to review. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, AIRA alerts our production team. They can improve the quality during author proofs.

 Please refer to this check as part of your review. If you believe that the language quality requires improvement irrespective of the AIRA rating, please ask the authors to copy-edit it as part of author revisions.
