Copyediting and Substantive editing

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

Master's/PhD/postdoctoral research experience (studies conducted, papers written/published, papers reviewed, etc.) Certificate/experience in academic editing, publishing, scientific communication, journal article writing, etc.

Extensive experience in editing ESL (English as a second language) manuscripts Knowledge of the style (such as APA, CMS, AMA, CSE, IEEE, etc.) and conventions followed in academic writing Member of acclaimed editing and publishing associations like EFA, EASE, BELS, etc.

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!

Do drop me a note if you are interested. At the same time, to facilitate the next step of the application, please upload your resume and cover letter at ([url removed, login to view]).

Working with us as a freelancer editor is a rewarding experience, both monetarily and intellectually, as you get to apply your domain knowledge and skills to help non-native authors present their work to the world through esteemed journals and renowned conferences, with the flexibility of timings and hours dedicated to editing.
