Academic editing

I am an accomplished academic editor, with skills developed through my own Ph.D. and 25 years of research and scientific writing. The following reviews attest to those skills.
“Richard edited my Ph.D. thesis and did a really wonderful job of it. He identified several places where I needed to explain a concept a bit more clearly. It looked absolutely fine to me – I have found it’s hard to critique my own work and having someone else look at it with that expert eye and invite you to think more deeply about it is an absolute blessing. Thank you, Richard. I appreciate your attention to detail.” Carolyn Hastie Midwife Academic at Griffith University February 14, 2021
“Richard provided his services as an academic editor for my Ph.D. thesis as well as for the submission of a journal article. I highly recommend Richard, as he is a highly qualified individual with great experiences in science, academic writing, and the peer-review process.” Stephany Sanchez-Ovando Clinical Researcher | Project Coordinator | Global Health Liaison | University Lecturer | Ph.D. Candidate at The University of Newcastle August 3, 2020
