As independent scientist, in addition to training courses in scientific writing and publication techniques, I offer a fast and high quality editing service for scientific manuscripts.
You have a personalized interaction with me because I offer this service independently, by myself, minimizing time and costs. I am contacted mostly by referrals from other professors, to whom I provide recurrent services.
Examples of edited manuscripts
The links below show examples of recently published manuscripts that I have edited in Frontiers in Immunology, PLOS ONE or International Journal of Molecular Sciences:
* X Tang et al A Novel Vaccine Delivery Model of the Apicomplexan Eimeria tenella Expressing Eimeria maxima Antigen Protects Chickens against Infection of the Two Parasites
Frontiers in Immunology, January 10, 2018, https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2017.01982
* G Huang et al Increased Neutralizing Antibody Production and Interferon-γ Secretion in Response to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus Immunization in Genetically Modified Pigs
Frontiers in Immunology, 12 September 2017, https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2017.01110
* J Xia et al, Genome-Wide Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation-Based Proteomic Analysis of Toxoplasma gondii ROP18’s Human Interactome Shows Its Key Role in Regulation of Cell Immunity and Apoptosis
Front. Immunol., 05 February 2018, https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2018.00061
Note: After acquiring sufficient expertise editing manuscripts, I have decided not to differentiate between substantive editing, proofreading or rewriting. I offer one service, and all documents are revised to the same high standards. I use the Chicago Manual of Style and the Scientific Style and Format from the Council of Science Editors as basis and references for editing. Note that reviewers’ judgment of the English language is frequently unreliable. In some cases they criticize English that is grammatically correct and well written.
The table below shows approximate costs, based on an initial word count. In some cases the cost may be lower. However, the final costs are based on the time required to do the full editing, because some manuscripts require very extensive modifications and very long times, even if they are very short.
My editing not only provides grammar’s revision and wording, but also professional scientific suggestions, logic and even writing tricks.
English Language Editing
Help with your cover letter; abstract rephrasing if necessary; English check of manuscript and response letter to reviewers after submission and check of manuscript changes
|up to 3,000 words||$525|
|3,000 to 6,000 words||$600|
|6,000 to 9,000 words||$675|
Manuscripts longer than 9,000 words and/or requiring extensive editing/rewriting will be provided with a specific quote
After you send me your manuscript I will contact you with a final estimate for the cost.
In all cases, manuscript or document editing is normally done in three or four business days. I provide invoices. Payment Options: Normally by bank transfer to a US Bank. Contact me if you are interested in other payment method, like AliPay or credit card.
Free writing workshops or courses when contracting editing services
Simultaneously edit your manuscripts and prepare your students and researchers with a cost-effective, life-time learning program with practical instructions to write manuscripts for publication in scientific journals.
If you contract my editing services for multiple manuscripts, I will offer free “on-site” workshops. At the SAME TIME that I edit your manuscripts I give workshops and courses where I can train your students, in person, to improve their writing skills. Schedule: Full courses are 1 week long. Workshops are 3 hours. At your location in Lab or University Department
