Medical Library / Information & Communication Sciences

Scientific Editing Service

Department of Information and Communication Sciences faculty will edit manuscripts, abstracts and grant proposals for School of Medicine authors.

The service offers suggestions relevant to journalistic style, clarity and use of appropriate scientific language, but does not review for content.

Papers do not need to be submitted in their entirety. For example, just sections of a grant could be submitted, or the list of references.

The service aims to help with proper wording; especially helpful for those whose first language is not English.


Drafts for editing should be provided as Microsoft Word documents.


Allow a two week turnaround time, unless other arrangements are made.
