Include in your e-mail: submission and review deadlines, level of editing and/or formatting desired, length of manuscript, and any style and formatting requirements. I will need to see a draft of your manuscript before I can give you a firm cost quote. All material is kept strictly confidential.

Sample edit
Upon request, I will edit two pages (up to 500 words) of your manuscript free of charge.


Nothing up front
For most projects, payment (check, PayPal, Venmo, Zelle) is due only after the work is completed to your satisfaction.

Formatting guarantee
If the project includes formatting to meet institutional or publisher requirements, acceptance is guaranteed: If your institution or publisher requests formatting changes after you submit, I will update your document at no additional charge.


What is your expertise?
Drawing upon my roots as a scientific researcher and writer, I have been writing, editing, and publishing research documentation for more than two decades. I work directly with students and professionals to ease the production and publication process. View testimonials.

Can you format my document even if I don’t need editing?
Yes, I can format your final manuscript to meet any submission requirements.

Can you handle technical subjects?
Yes, scientific writing is one of my specialties.

How can I tell what changes you made to my manuscript?
When I return your edited manuscript, I can include a version with changes tracked.

I know I’ll have to do revisions right up to the end—can you accommodate that?
I understand last-minute revisions are often unavoidable. I can usually develop a plan with you to avoid costly repetition of work.

I’m on a budget—how can I keep my costs down?
You’ll get my lowest rates if you can schedule projects at least three weeks in advance and get your final content to me well ahead of your deadline. I can often accommodate last-minute requests with tight deadlines, but rates will be higher.
