List of Freelance Editors 



Professional editing help can greatly help communicate your ideas to fellow 

scientists and the editors and reviewers. Obviously many professional editors 

and companies exist that provide revising, editing, and proofreading services 

for scientific documents and you are welcome to use whichever one you want. We 

provide a few suggestions if you don't know where to start:



MSA DOES NOT PAY FOR THIS. We do not guarantee that a person or service found 

on this list will work well. You can use any English editor you find through 

other sources! Using an editor does not guarantee a successful peer review. 

Negotiate all contracts/fees/payment and work schedule before starting work, 

directly with the freelance editor. Authors should feel absolutely free to ask 

for resumes/references/samples. You may also send feedback to the Editorial 

Office, editorial@minsocam.org.

I can add additional editors to the list as well.
