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
I can add additional editors to the list as well.
