Research papers are quite complicated -- how can you showcase your scientific content without your readers getting lost among the technological terms, field-specific jargon, or (worst of all) grammatically incorrect sentences?

Well, we can help! Our editors not only have grammatical expertise, but they also have scientific, engineering, and legal backgrounds. Therefore, instead of asking you about every new vocabulary word, we have a better sense of what you're talking about, and how to make it sound even clearer. We're also native English speakers who have scored above the 95th percentile on verbal standardized tests, so if you have a question on the many nuances of the English language, we're here to help.

Editing Staff

At the moment, our editing staff consists of:

    • Chief Editor: Issel Anne Lim, PhD

She majored in biology, minored in biomedical engineering and toxicology, and now is pursuing a PhD in MRI research. For any written piece, she can correct your grammar with a fine-toothed comb.
    • Senior Editor: Kristen Fon Lim
      • Kristen is currently a law student at the University of Baltimore, and received her BA in English from The College of William and Mary. Her interests include legal and historical subjects.

We can really help with any type of writing, whether it's a paper, email, book chapter, website, article, etc. Let's collaborate! :)
