Scientific Writing USD $60/hr Textbook writing; white papers; website/magazine content; complete research manuscript or case report writing based on your data/chart notes, list of references, outline, and communication with you: please contact Dr. Copeland for an estimate. Note: for dissertations or theses, we offer editing only Scientific English Copyediting USD $0.06/word* This service includes correction of English grammar, vocabulary, and basic scientific style, as well as basic proofreading of scientific information that may be missing or unclear. (For example, I would point out missing cycling conditions from a PCR section within the Methods. This service does not, however, include a complete scientific review, as would be done during peer review, nor does it include substantial rewriting of whole sections.)
Substantive Editing/ Word-Count ReductionUSD $0.10/WORD* Substantive editing, also known as developmental editing or "pre-peer review", goes beyond copyediting to include evaluation of the manuscript in terms of scientific communication, more extensive rewriting, polishing of writing style, and reorganization of large sections to produce a more publishable paper, as well as consideration of issues likely to raise questions during peer review. Substantive editing also includes formatting for a specific journal, and recommendations for well-regarded journals that would be appropriate for the manuscript. Substantive editing of grant sections (e.g., NIH Protection of Human Subjects) can be done on a per-word or hourly basis.
Word count reduction streamlines your manuscript for a reduction of up to 25% of the original manuscript (for a final word count of 75% of the original manuscript). The word count reduction service includes correction of English grammar and vocabulary to yield a correctly written, as well as more succinct, manuscript.
Translation: German-to-English/Spanish-to-EnglishUSD $0.12/WORD Translation of research studies (academic papers) or medical case reports in select medical and biology subjects from Spanish to English or German to English. The final manuscript will be a grammatically correct English version of your Spanish or German manuscript or case report. For substantive editing or word-count reduction, please add 5 cents/word.
*All per-word charges are based on word count of the original manuscript. Looking for an approximate charge but not ready to run a word count? An "average" scientific manuscript of about 4,000 words would translate to a cost of $240.00 (US dollars) for straightforward copyediting, $400.00 for substantive editing, or $480.00 for translation.
