Description - We are looking for experienced copy and substantive editors in science and non-science disciplines with a core academic background.
We prefer editor profiles that reflect

A glimpse at what you would edit:
You will be assigned papers of varying difficulty levels (in terms of English, subject matter expertise, and the extent of revision needed) written by non-native speakers in either English or their native language (translated papers). These papers are written by what we believe constitute an eclectic group of authors and writers, i.e., we receive work from not only scientists, researchers, and students but also corporates, linguists, and the common man trying to communicate in English--from the latest in cutting-edge technology to the timeless fascination with history and arts!
Our freelance editors should ensure:
immaculate grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and word choice flow, transition, correct terminology, correctness of content, and coherence appropriate manuscript format* that conforms to academic conventions in terms of citation style, layout, section headings, and tense usage preservation of the author's intended meaning even in papers where the content requires extensive revision *Freelance editors also thoroughly format the manuscript as per mentioned journal guidelines when clients opt for our journal formatting service.
We ensure a smooth performance-driven progression curve for our freelance editors with an effective feedback mechanism, which ensures that the expectation mismatch is nearly zero. In the past, the strong professional bonding with our freelance editors has also lead to mutual recommendations--a definite plus factor!
