In today's global, information-laden, economy the ability to communicate clearly and succinctly in English is of increasing importance. As the volume of information and the "noise to signal ratio" increases, attention spans become shorter. Poor quality English can easily alienate readers, be they journal editors, referees, potential funders, policy makers or the general public.
Most writers, even native English speakers, need another pair of eyes to look over their work once it is finished, even if only to pick up grammatical and spelling mistakes made in the final rush to get a manuscript finished. Others, for whom English is not their native language, face more challenges. Ambiguities may need clarifying, arcane language or dissonant idioms removing, or the tone modifying so that the article is appropriate for the intended readership.
