Editing & Writing for Health & Social Sciences

...and for a better world

Editing, formatting, rewriting for researchers, scholars, doctors and other health professionals, NGOs/NPOs, scientific companies, governmental ministries, think tanks… An experienced editor who’s on your team, so your work changes the world.

Experienced. Cooperative. Comprehensive.

For ESL/EFL speakers to convey their research findings in clear, academically appropriate English.

Real editing is not just proofreading, not just copy editing.

A board-certified (ELS) life sciences editor with a 15-year track record of helping authors succeed.

Manuscript Editing

Scientific, academic publishing has its own language and rules. You must know them.

  • How to structure your manuscript
  • The right terminology and tone
  • English that native speakers use

I’ll fix all that, for academic research and reports. Language editing, copy editing, proofreading, and a success partner. 

Report Editing

You’ve done the research and writing. Now the readers need to understand it! 

I apply trained editing skills and a background in development studies, business, and science

If you realize a grammar app, a cheap freelancer, or a well-intentioned friend with good English doesn’t give you the language quality you want, call on me.
