As an authors' editor, I help you improve a manuscript you've already written in English so it can be submitted to a journal or publisher for peer-review and publication. Together we work to improve organization, flow and linguistic expression so you can be more confident that you are communicating your research effectively.
Regardless of how much intervention and collaboration is required, my job is to help you get your message across in a way that will be clear and appropriate for your target reader and context. You can think of me as the bridge between you and your target reader, helping you connect with each other.
If you are looking for help with specific aspects of your writing or the writing process, or you would like an assessment of your writing strengths and weaknesses or other kind of consultation, please visit the Writing Solutions page.
