The Medical Editor - Medical and Scientific Editing Service

I enthusiastically recommend as editors of scientific manuscripts. 

Over the years, Mr. Richmond and his team have helped me in editing journal articles in a wide range of medical disciplines. Many of these manuscripts had been written by non-English speakers seeking to publish their work in peer-reviewed journals.
They are excellent writers and highly proficient in the AMA Manual of Style. They are an excellent choice for medical and other scientific professionals seeking a high-quality editing service.

We edit every document in 4 key areas:

  • Substantive medical editing
    When needed, we will rewrite sentences, eliminate redundancies, restructure paragraphs, condense materials, remove jargon, check your nomenclature and usage, and otherwise ensure that your manuscript clearly and effectively presents its information to your intended audience. (read more)
  • Medical copyediting and proofreading
    We edit every manuscript so that it meets the stylistic requirements of the American Medical Association. We edit for sense, style, preferred usage, and correct grammar. We eliminate jargon. We change words to ensure consistency in tense and format. And we edit for proper spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. (read more)
  • Formatting
    We will format the abstract, references, text, Tables, Figures, and legends so that they conform to the journal's instructions to authors or to the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals. (read more)
  • Reference accuracy
    At The Medical Editor, we ensure the accuracy of your Reference section by verifying each reference at the National Library of Medicine. And if we can’t determine the accuracy of a reference at PubMed, we’ll contact the journal or we’ll use another database. (read more)

I have to say that I was very impressed by the highly professional editing. I was expecting a manuscript improved at the level of the English language, but what I received was a manuscript with much-more detailed editing that will be useful to improve the article.

I am very satisfied and happy with the work, and will gladly pay the amount you charged me because it reflects the intellectual work you put into it.

I will certainly use your editing service again. Please send my thanks to the doctor who did the work.
