國立成功大學文學院外語中心英文論文校稿服務要點

103.1.4 院務會議通過
105.10.06院務會議修正通過
Adopted by the College Faculty Meeting, January 4, 2014 
Amendment adopted by the College Faculty Meeting, Oct. 6, 2016

第一點、目的:
為推動本校師生論文的國際化,以提升本校的學術地位,外語中心(以下簡稱本中心)聘請專業的外籍人士(以下簡稱潤稿員),成立英文論文寫作服務小組,提供本校教師及研究生(以下簡稱申請人)撰寫英文論文時所需之校稿協助。
I. Purpose
To propel the internationalization of the University's publications and to elevate the University's academic level, the Foreign Language Center (abbreviated below to "FLC") has formed the English proofreading service section, composed by professional proofreaders (abbreviated below to "proofreaders"), to assist the University's faculty and students (abbreviated below to "applicants") in proofreading their English writing. 

 

第二點、對象與資格:
本校教師及研究生。
II. Eligibility
This service applies to all faculty members and students of the University. 

 

第三點、編修範圍
潤稿(proof-reading)並非審稿(reviewing),也非翻譯(translating),主要係以修正英文拼字、文法、標點符號、大小寫、用字、句法、文句或篇章連貫性、及可使意義清楚而作的換字等之修改。參考文獻及圖表說明若需編修,以潤稿員同意為原則。其他如論文重寫或整段不順,簡化重覆的文句或整段文句的調換等大幅修改,則不在編修範圍之內。至於文章內容,考量各研究領域之專業性及獨特性,潤稿員不會任意更動或修改,也不會質疑其適切性。潤稿後的內容是否能被指導教授或投稿期刊等單位接受,亦不在本中心校稿服務範圍內。
III. Definition on Proofreading
Proofreading is not reviewing or translating. It aims at correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, word choice, syntax, cohesion, and other aspects in writing. In addition to the text, references and captions can be edited if the proofreaders consent. The proofreading scope excludes rewriting, simplifying repetitive sentences, or rearranging paragraphs, or other large scale changes in texts. Considering the professionalism and distinctiveness of individual research fields, the proofreaders will not revise the contents or question correctness of information and data. The FLC and proofreaders are not responsible for whether the thesis/dissertation advisors or the publication editors accept the manuscripts.

 

第四點、送件注意事項

(三) 本中心網頁有潤稿員之學經歷介紹,送件者可以指定。若申請時未指定,本中心將根據潤稿員稿件量分派。為確保三方(申請者、潤稿員及本中心)的訊息一致,與潤稿員溝通的往返信件務必同時副本給本中心,否則本中心無法協助處理突發狀況。

IV. Guidelines for manuscript submission
1. The application form is available to download at the FLC website. A scanned file of the completed application form with the corresponding or first author’s signature, along with the manuscript, shall be sent to the FLC (flcproofread@gmail.com) directly. The manuscripts will be passed to the proofreaders only when the application form is completed. A new application shall be submitted by a new email thread in case of confusion. Successful application emails will be sent to both the proofreaders and the applicants. The applicants is advised to make a conformation call to the FLC to avoid mail lost during the process. 
2. If the application is sent after 17: 00 on a workday or anytime on a holiday (or typhoon day), the next workday shall be marked as the application date. To ensure a smooth administration process, the proofreaders, and the FLC, the FLC shall be included in the email correspondences between the applicants and the proofreaders. Failing to do so may result in conflicts that cannot be assisted by the FLC. 
3. The applicants can choose their preferred proofreader based on the profiles published on the FLC website. In the case of no preference being indicated in the application, the FLC will distribute the manuscripts based on the proofreaders' availability. 
4. Long manuscripts can be submitted chapter by the chapter to maintain consistency. The applicants are not allowed to change the version of the manuscripts after the application is approved. After submission, the applicants cannot change the version except for special conditions. 

 

第五點、論文形式:
以電腦Word輸出,12字元,兩倍行距,單欄式編排。格式未符合規定者將退件,請重新修改稿件格式後再申請。word檔案夾帶圖檔後如果太大 (例如:超過15MB),潤稿員可能編修完成後無法寄回,建議可把文內的圖表和參考文獻拆開,以另外一份檔案(如:PDF檔)讓潤稿員參考。
V. Manuscript format 
The manuscript shall be double-spaced, and typed in single column throughout. Applications will be accepted when the formats meet the requirement. If the file size, including figures and pictures, exceeds 15 MB, the corrected manuscripts may not be successfully returned to the applicants via email. It is suggested to send the text and the figures/pictures/appendices, in separate files, and provide pdf version of the complete paper as the proofreaders' reference. 

 

第六點、校稿時間
校稿工作天不含例假日。編修字數一萬字以內者,交件日自申請日翌日起需7個工作天(不含例假日);一萬字以上自申請日翌日起至少需14個工作天(不含例假日),否則視同急件。因本中心的稿件量大,申請時避免填寫少於五天的交件日期,實際交件日期以潤稿員及申請人共同協調出的時間為準。若需先估價,正式校稿起始日以申請人接受潤稿員的報價開始計算。
VI. Working days for proofreading
The working days for proofreading exclude weekends and holidays. It takes a minimum of 7 business days to complete the text of 10000 words or below, and a minimum of 14 business days for texts beyond 10000 words, counting from the date when the negotiation among all parties is completed. Documents to be completed in a shorter time are considered rush service. Due to a large amount of manuscripts received in the FLC, the applicants are advised to sufficient time for proofreading and office handling. If a price quote is necessary, the working day shall start from the date when the applicants consent to the price quote.  

 

第七點、退稿
若稿件的英文造成潤稿員無法看懂及修改時(如,以翻譯軟體翻譯之英文),或是所送文件在無註明出處或使用引號情況下,抄襲或剽竊他人文章,本中心有權退件;但已修改部份,申請人仍需付費。

(二) 若有經費限制,請於申請單註明,並於信件標題註明Price Quote,恕無法指定潤稿金額及時數上限。為避免紛爭,一次只能要求一位潤稿員估價,在回信確認拒絕前一潤稿員後,本中心才會將稿件送下一位潤稿員估價。

2. The issuing date of the official receipts cannot be earlier than the completion day or later than the payment is made. The official receipts will be issued around the 20th day when the payment is completed before the 15th day of the month. The official receipts will be issued approximately on the 5th day in the following month when the payment is completed between the 16th to the last day of the month. The above mentioned issuing dates will be postponed when they fall on holidays. Applicants who pay online or plan to get reimbursement from other institutions are advised to pay earlier, so the receipts can be issued on time as the transaction also requires time. 
3. The applicants are required to pick up the receipts from the FLC in person, with the proof of payment. No mailing service for the official receipt is offered.
