Scientific editing covers many kinds of writing, including original research articles, review articles, commentaries, grant applications, theses, posters, video scripts, and more. Our editors have both subject-area training and extensive experience as scientific and medical editing editors. All writers benefit from having a professional edit their work.
Path to success to publish
Even the best writers need editors. Achieving your publication goal can be difficult, and it is usually a highly competitive process. You can gain a competitive edge by having a professional editor ensure that your work is clearly written, meets your target journal’s submission requirements, and is error free.
How scientific editing differs from other manuscript editing
Scientific and medical editing journals have specific requirements for submissions, including formatting, word count, style, English usage, and content. San Francisco Edit’s professional editors have years of experience with these journal guidelines and shaping manuscripts to meet them. Academic readers expect a certain style, organization, and clarity that is specific to scientific and medical writing. San Francisco Edit’s professional editors can shape your manuscript to meet those expectations.
Why scientific and scientific editing?
Having a professional with a relevant PhD edit your manuscript means a fresh set of eyes and a new perspective on your work. Editors can detect and correct problems with structure and organization, edit sentences for clarity and construction, and address grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. And they can ensure that your manuscript meets the submission guidelines for your target journal.
