Worried the reviewers will reject your manuscript? Improve your paper with our FREE Ready-to-Submit Checklist!


We enable talented life scientists to

prepare and submit manuscripts with confidence,

so they can fulfil their passion for discovery

without frustration or rejection



We know it can be difficult to trust someone else with your important research.

After all, you've probably spent years working on your manuscript. You need an editor with good scientific knowledge who won't make a mess of your manuscript, who you can trust with your data, and maybe even someone who can help you learn and improve. That's why Science Editing Experts offer:

MSc or PhD editors

We only recruit native English-speaking, full-time editors with life science MSc or PhD degrees.  We don't use students or non-scientists.

Our editors have extensive laboratory experience, so they understand the difficulties of research and publishing.

We have the scientific knowledge to understand your research and make educated suggestions and improvements.

Personalised feedback

Your editor will provide friendly comments throughout your manuscript, so you can learn the rules of scientific writing and improve your skills.

We also love to work collaboratively with writers who need a little more help. The editor will ask questions and make suggestions about the order, structure or content of your manuscript, send it back to you, and then check your changes. 



We know it can be difficult to trust a scientific editor with your important research. After all, you've probably spent years working on your study. 

Some editing companies employ active PhD students/post docs, so there is a chance you could send your data to someone in a competitor's lab.

In contrast, our editors are full-time editors who don't currently work as active researchers. 

Money-back guarantee

We'll edit your manuscript in 3 or 7 days, so you can submit to your chosen journal with confidence, without worrying the reviewers will complain about poor English.

If you're not happy with our changes or in the unlikely event the reviewers' reject the manuscript due to poor English, we'll edit the manuscript again or you can have your money back. 

We're confident you won't need to ask!






I know that scientific writing can be difficult and frustrating

During my time as a undergraduate and PhD student in biochemistry, cancer research and cell biology, I realised it can be difficult to write about research. Thankfully, my supervisors provided constructive advice and helped me develop effective scientific writing skills.

When I became a post doc, I enjoyed sharing these writing skills and tips with students - even more than I enjoyed doing western blots and real-time PCR!

I started Science Editing Experts to help other life science researchers to prepare and submit their manuscripts with confidence. You can read more about what inspired me here.

I look forward to helping you with your research! Please contact me if you have any questions!

"I was not sure what to expect because it was the first time that I ever used a professional service for editing. Especially, I did not know how a person not familiar with my field of research would deal with a very topic-specific manuscript. However, I found Science Editing Experts very good and professional, and they provided brilliant suggestions for improving my text. Also very fast, on time, no excuses and no delays and constructive communication, so I was able to ask and get immediate and helpful responses. You can really rely on this service, I never was disappointed! The service can really be recommended! "

"I had an open mind and I did not know what to expect, but the service was way beyond my expectations. The fact that you tried to understand and help to get the message across was just great! The best thing about Science Editing Experts was Andrea’s ability to think with me to capture the right wording. I give a 5 star recommendation (out of 5). This service helps to bring your text / article to the next (professional) level."

"I would like to share the news about the recent publication of our book chapter about Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage and Resolution of Inflammation. It was great news that our chapter was published as “online first” due to its potential relevance to clinical research. I would like to acknowledge the importance of your professional editing service. During the process of revision of our manuscript by the publisher, we were asked to change just minor aspects, but absolutely nothing about English language. I think the high-quality written English provided by Science Editing Experts was a crucial factor for the publication success."

"I was actually looking for an editing service offering professional and fair price. I had to choose Science Editing Experts for its transparency (outlining different options with prices and detailed editing services associated). I’m using Science Editing Experts (since 2016), I would honestly say I’m always very satisfied with the results. The very quick response regarding quote request and the return of the manuscript in no time, personalized service on each manuscript, highly professional and always valuable questions and recommendations. I certainly recommend Science Editing Experts as I always receive excellent feedbacks regarding the shape of my manuscripts. They are very competitive (my top one) given the quality of service offered and the price. With English being my third language, I always feel the need to be revised. Work provided by Science Editing Experts actually helped a lot improving my writing skills. The track on changes and highlighted insertions and modifications are very helpful."

I actually did suggest to my colleagues and students to use Science Editing Experts. "

"Everything was perfect, I will use your service again. Excellent Editing, very fast, really good communication and much better service than the others I have used before. The subject was psychology and I think your editing and your advise were really good. Thank you so much for your help."


"I was concerned that the content of the article was be modified to a great extent. Instead, I found a very professional service, it helped me to learn and identify mistakes in writing that can be difficult to see for a non-native speaker. I definitely recommend Science Editing Experts, especially for scientists in the area of natural or environmental sciences. The only service other than this that I have used is the human revision in Grammarly. While it can be fast, grammarly does not spot style and other things correct by Science Editing Experts."
