I provide four different levels of editing services, ranging from simple proofreading to in-depth substantive changes and journal-specific formatting. All levels include editing tables, figures, and captions; references are not edited unless prior arrangements are made. I also write well-researched, credible scientific content for websites and newsletters; for details on specific scientific fields, please contact me at

If you have questions about which level would be most suitable for your particular manuscript, I am happy to review your manuscript and give you my opinion.  If you would like a review or a quotation, please email your manuscript to, and I will provide you with a quotation within 24 hours.
