The goal of my editing service is to bring manuscripts up to the point that they can be submitted in the best shape possible. The extent of editing that will be required will differ based on my evaluation of the client’s manuscript. My basic service goes beyond the basic proofreading of manuscripts, and also ensures that there is a common voice throughout, even with multiple authors’ contributions, that scientific terms and experimental groups are defined and used consistently, and to ensure overall flow and readability.

My process for a given project is for the client to send me their full manuscript for evaluation, from which I will then estimate the level of copyediting required. Next, I will send the client an Editing Agreement with an estimated quote, which I have signed and dated. Once this document is signed and dated by the client, I will begin editing. My edits will typically be completed within one week.
