As part of Nature Research Editing Service, Scientific Editing is carried out by PhD-qualified, Nature-standard editors, most of whom have worked as editors at highly selective journals. Using their expertise, our editors can help your researchers understand how top journal editors might approach their paper.

What we edit

We specialize in editing research papers, reviews and grant applications within the natural sciences (medicine, biology, chemistry, physics and earth sciences) and engineering.

The editing process

Every document submitted to Scientific Editing goes through three stages of editing.

  1. As the preliminary stage, it undergoes English Language Editing to correct any language errors.
  2. The main stage is a developmental edit: a PhD-qualified Nature-standard editor examines all aspects of the document, including the effectiveness of the scientific argument, the structure, clarity, flow and relative emphasis of the arguments, as well as the description of the rationale, methods and how the conclusions were derived.
  3. As a final stage, the document is comprehensively reviewed by a second Nature-standard editor. This editor provides additional edits and ensures that our advice is as useful as possible.

Skills development report

As well as receiving their edited document, researchers receive a custom 4–8 page report. This contains feedback on the most important issues identified during the edit, journal recommendations, and advice for publication and for improving their writing in the future.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your work. You did really an excellent job. What I liked in particular was that you gave comments with substantial suggestions how to improve. Although I have published till now quite a number of scientific papers (>300) and many of them in high impact journals I learned a lot throughout this. – Professor, University of Bayreuth, Germany
