Editor for a Research Paper

Search more jobs

I am an independent researcher with a Biology undergraduate degree and five years of work experience (as a management consultant).

I completed an independent research project to understand the biosecurity landscape in China. (For context: Biosecurity practices prevent unauthorised access, loss, theft, misuse, diversion, or release of biological agents.)

I'd love to request a once-off copyediting service to review and improve the research write-up.
[Note: I'd also like to trial your service by letting you review and improve a small section of my write-up. The trial will also be paid.]

- This job includes re-writing some paragraphs for clarity and conciseness. The write-up consists of 10,000 words or 34 pages. I'd love to make the write-up concise and get it down to ~25 pages.
- I aim to publish an easy-to-read and coherent write-up on SSRN. Factual accuracy is my responsibility, so fact-checking is not required.
- I estimated this job to take roughly 20-30 hours of your time. The expected deadline is mid-December.
