Editing

As a medical editor, I help you ensure that your documents are clear and written in language appropriate for your audience. I understand the science of medicine (I’m a medical professional myself), and my clients appreciate my eye for detail and my professional editing expertise.

Editing services

  • Substantive editing
  • Copyediting
  • Proofreading
  • Language editing or rewriting for authors whose first language is not English
  • Ensuring consistent style within a document
  • Applying American Medical Association style and house styles
  • Formatting to journal style requirements
  • Reducing word count
  • Eliminating jargon
  • Fact checking (if annotated reference PDFs are provided)

Services I don’t provide

I’m not the best fit for your project if you need these services:

  • Plagiarism detection
    I have a fairly good eye for changes of voice and will flag plagiarism if I notice it, but I don’t use plagiarism detection software and can’t guarantee that I will find problematic text.
  • Journal suggestions for research article submission

 

I began to work through your patient and thoughtful work and I am impressed.
…I like your version of the paragraph. It is more concise. As usual you caught the “internal logic” of my convoluted thinking.
