Service Description

Editorial services meet professional publication standards in medicine, social science, business, and the humanities. Whether prepared for the web or for traditional publishers, your content will be clear, accurate, convincing, and delivered in the publication style and variety of English you specify. Research includes evaluating, annotating, and digitizing archival material.

As editor or researcher I help advance your valid arguments - perhaps not least through reliable judgment and candor when you seem headed out on a limb.

editorial services:
- peer review
- manuscript evaluation
- social sciences and issues
- education and youth
- health: science, literacy, policy, wellbeing

research services:
- library and archive
- evaluation and digitization
- history and humanities
- arts and culture

I maintain a news feed and other online resources on diabetes remission and current medical and behavioral research. I am not the like-named, distinguished journalist and media critic.
