Services offered & rates

Scientific editing

I offer professional, reliable editing of of scientific papers (substantive editing and copy-editing) in my specialist areas. I specialise in botany, ecology, viticulture, agriculture, forestry, and oenology. Editing can increase your chances of getting accepted by a good journal. It is particularly useful for authors whose first language is not English.

I can assist by reworking the text for clarity and coherence. This can include:

  • revising sentence and paragraph structure
  • correcting typos and grammatical errors
  • formatting your paper correctly for your target journal.

Editing rates start from €40 per 1000 words, but will depend on the length and complexity of the project. Formatting is an additional €15 per 1000 words. Discounts are possible for longer projects, please contact me for details. I require a 25% deposit in advance to secure a slot in my diary.

Scientific writing

I am also available to write short articles and blog posts on the same topics (and potentially others, with discussion). Scientific writing rates start from €45 per 500 words, but also depend on the length and complexity of the project. I require a 25% deposit in advance to secure a slot in my diary.
