Service Description

Proofread (English language spelling and grammar, consistency of formatting, logic and flow and basic scientific fact-check)

Copy-edit/substantive editing (as proofread, but in full detail including a check of the consistency of terms and logic, I will also format a paper according to journal guidelines if requested)

Content generation (I will write scientific content, focused on environmental or physical sciences, for any audience).
