“The quality of the paper you (submit) directly reflects the quality of the science behind it. A careless approach to writing can undermine the most meticulous experiment. It is thus critical that the paper be free of careless errors, especially in the data.”
– Katrina Kelner, Tips for Publishing in Scientific Journals
The credibility and impact of your written scientific material is dependent not only on the quality of your research or your data, but on how it is communicated.
The clear and accurate expression of ideas, consistent use of terminology, concise and meaningful statements, in language that is accessible to your target audience is pivotal to successful written communications.
At SugarApple Communications we do not offer different levels of editing because we passionately believe your written communications should meet these minimum standards, and that anything less is a waste of your money and our time.
We work with both native English-speaking and English as a second language (ESL) scientists. We can provide an editing certificate for journal articles confirming that your work was edited by a native English-speaking editor with expertise in your field when we believe your work is ready for publication.
