    Jan Abigail Garcia

    Experienced Academic and Medical Writer, Editor and Proofreader

    Philippines - Last active: 1 month ago

    I have extensive experience writing technical and research papers in Biology, Cell & Molecular Biology, Genetics, Health and Medicine. I also have experience writing articles for publication in a scientific journal. I am a very detail-oriented individual and thus, I extensively review, edit and proofread my work and those of others. I'm familiar with various citation formats but mostly use APA and CSE for science and research writing. I'm a disciplined and hardworking individual with no problems working with deadlines. I work very well independently but I'm a 'people-person' so, I also enjoy working with a team and still be professional when it comes to team management. My core competencies are in developing and writing articles, research papers and theses in the Biological Sciences, specifically cell & molecular biology and genetics, and in Health and Medicine. I can assist you in developing a topic outline for your study, reviewing related literature, building a sound methodology, and analyzing and interpreting the results for discussion. I can also provide further research material for the discussion of results in relation to your hypothesis. All my work is original. As a researcher, I am anti-plagiarism. On the other hand, I can also provide short science or health-related articles written for the general public. These articles are designed to be concise, informative and written in a tone that is friendly and audience-oriented. I have a unique skill to express medical and scientific knowledge in a way that is easy for the general public to understand. I am looking for opportunities to write, review and edit all kinds of scientific and health-related works from short 1-5 page articles to full research papers for you or your company. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology specializing in Biological Research and then pursued a Masters of Science in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology; after which, I studied 2 years of Medicine, which I could not finish due to an unfortunate accident. Still, I am driven to pursue the things I love - science and medicine - even if it is in a different form. I have a passion to share scientific and medical knowledge to those who don't understand the big medical and scientific terms. :)
