To be honest, I have not always been very impressed with the editing done by publishers (of journals and volumes) before. I now make sure I get as much editing done as I possibly can before turning in my work.

My personal tactic is to send pieces of the work (or the entire work) to several friends. Some are writers too, some have relevant experience, others are merely interested in the subject matter. That way, I get a range of opinions and everyone may catch different things. We do these things for each other for free and this way we've built a little network. In my experience, this is a really good first step in cleaning up your text, and if you do not have a publisher or editor it's better than nothing!
