Editing and proofreading
If you have a high standard of scientific English I can make grammar, spelling and punctuation corrections and ensure that there is consistent style throughout your document.
I also offer more intensive editing of the text to a natural style of scientific English that is clear, concise and unambiguous. This is especially recommended for non-native English speakers.
Word count reduction
It can be difficult to meet the strict word limits set by journals and grant funders. I can reduce the word count of your manuscript while maintaining the information, data and ideas in the document.
If you need your document formatted to meet the guidelines of a particular journal or grant funder, I can make the changes for you. This service also includes formatting of the list of references.
