I need someone to edit and proofread a scientific paper. We are a research group, and the article is about to be submitted for publication. The paper is on the order of 7,000 words and pertain to computer science.
The editor will copyedit and proofread, correcting grammar and punctuation. (The article's author may in some cases be a non-native English speaker.) Key skills: ability to restructure sentences and paragraphs for clarity; and, the ability to work in a range of typesetting programs (e.g., Word, LaTeX, Pages).
This is my first job on oDesk, but given a good experience, there will be more jobs in the future. I'd love to establish a long-term working relationship with someone.
