Editing & Proofreading Services | Knowing the difference
Many researchers don't realize that editing services, proofreading services, and copyediting all provide distinct offerings. It is important for you, as the prospective client, to understand these differences, based on your unique needs and budget.
Comprehensive editing services entail basic corrections for spelling and grammar (copyediting), restructuring paragraphs, andchanging your text with the intent to present both optimal logic and flow and overall quality of your writing. When hiring an editor you are providing them the freedom to remove entire sentences or rewrite entire paragraphs. At Bioscience Advising, we provide editorial suggestions on any text that needs correction, and use "track changes" for your approval or rejection of each individual mark-up. Our primary goal is to apply our expertise and intuition to ensure your document makes sense (i.e., is "readable"), while minimizing the use of jargon, and clarifying any ambiguity.
A proofreading (copyediting) service edits your document strictly for spelling or grammar; consequentially that service can be quite inexpensive. However, much more comprehensive editing services (e.g., Bioscience Advising) go greatly above and beyond spelling/grammar corrections, additionally providing more specialized review, including paragraph restructuring, readability for logic and "flow," journal formatting, and evaluation of scientific content.
Benefits of using an Editing Service
Editing services can provide greater confidence, security, quality, and improved credibility to your writings. Don’t risk rejection because of typographical errors, poor formatting, lack of "flow,' in or convoluted jargon!
With our experience in academia, including (but not limited to) cancer biology, epigenetics, pharmacology, and cell biology, our company is uniquely positioned to assist scholars in numerous biomedical research fields.
Bioscience Advising not only extensively edits your work, from a grammatical and "readability" stance, but will also suggest revisions involving overall structure, scientific logic, formatting, and content, presenting your work in the best possible light to its reviewers, to maximize your chance of publication in the peer-reviewed journal of your choice.
Our grant application editing packages include three different levels with varying editing and development processes included in each.
Journal manuscript editing and development packages include a Line-by-line editing, or a comprehensive review and revision of works previously rejected for publishing
Academic editing can cover a variety of different topics. While Dr. Curt Bulch specializes in bioscience, his experience and skill set expands to all styles and topics academic in nature.
Editorial Service Options
Our standard packages include either full preparation and creation or simple editing and submission services based on your project’s individual needs. Working closely with all our clients we work hard to develop a clear understanding of your topic making sure all editions are cohesive with your study.
If your budget is limited, we can provide customized a la carte services ranging from basic grammar and “fine-tuning” of documents for clarity and flow to exhaustive scientific critiquing and in-depth revisions or rebuttals for previously declined submissions.
Our Satisfaction Guarantee
If you are not satisfied with our work, we provide a full cost refund (prior to journal or grant application review). Payments for all services are billed 50 percent upfront and the remaining balance is billed upon completion of the documents.
