Scientific English Editing
The ability to communicate research findings clearly and concisely is an essential skill required in all scientific disciplines. I have paid particular attention to precise writing throughout my career as an ecologist, and I have become increasingly aware of just how much the effective presentation of scientific work is valued by my colleagues and by journal editors and referees.
Melissa helped us to finalize our manuscript for the submission to an outstanding journal by improving not only the language quality of the text but also its scientific correctness and clarity. We particularly appreciated the valuable comments on technical and editorial issues, which reflect her expertise in the field of plant ecology and her knowledge of the publication process. Her scientific editing service helped us present our work at the highest level of scientific writing.

As a native English speaker working in Switzerland, I have helped researchers from the environmental sciences domain to improve the correctness and clarity of their scientific texts written in English. My academic background [cv] in ecology (PhD, MSc), landscape architecture (MLA) and biology (BSc) helps me fully understand the content of writing from a broad range of disciplines, which is key for maintaining the intended message in scientific texts. I am actively involved in ecological research, which means I have extensive experience with the manuscript submission and revision processes and with presenting scientific work at international conferences.
Thank you for the very accurate and (as always) fast correction of the manuscript. I really think that your corrections and comments improve not only the English but also the quality of the manuscript as a whole.
Linguistic revisions were always done before the due date and were to our full satisfaction, even with time-sensitive requests. We especially cherished the scientific background of the linguistic editing, which often not only corrected the English but also improved our basic scientific messages.
