I have extensive editing experience, mostly of scientists’ writing. I often go well beyond copy-editing to making improvements like increasing clarity, removing jargon, improving structure and suggesting compelling leads, transitions and closers. Major clients include the American Geophysical Union, the American Physical Society and others.
