Faith Editorial Services
I am a freelance scientific and technical copy editor with experience editing in XML and Microsoft Word and am a team manager and trainer for a group of editors working on civil engineering journals. My degree in Biology, background in chemistry, and work experience in the medical laboratory led to my experience editing peer-reviewed journal articles in the civil engineering (American Society of Civil Engineers), genetics, medicine, and molecular biology (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press), and human kinetics fields. I am also available to work on dissertations and papers for journal submission.
Additionally, I also work with a Christian nonprofit as a copy editor, content writer, proofreader, and transcriber and have a solid understanding of the Bible and Protestant theology. My editorial business is listed in the 2017 Christian Writer’s Market Guide under Faith Editorial Services (p. 328).
As a copyediting team manager, style specialist, and trainer, I have written training tutorials, trained new editors to the team, provide feedback and corrections to individual editors, and liaise with the client. I understand the urgency of deadlines and am able to organize my work schedule to meet them.
My experience includes use of templates, equation editors, and various style guides. I quickly transcribe audio files and edit, condense, and/or verify the content of the transcription.
My training as an ESL tutor provided opportunities to work with students of several nationalities to help them improve or learn English. Therefore, I am able to quickly read manuscripts written by authors whose first language is not English and smooth the grammar or provide alternate wording suggestions. I can help you to improve the English grammar and clarity before submitting your work to publishers or universities.
I can help you with Section 508 accessibility compliance and e-publishing.
I am also a member of the Christian PEN.
It would be my pleasure to work on your project.
