About the Company

We only work for clients that want high quality scientific, nutritional, fitness, health or medical writing/consulting that gives results - websites that sell, books that get read and supplements that work!

The Med Writers is a team of experienced PhD-level medical writers led by me, Dr. Karen Vieira: a scientist with a PhD in Biomedical Sciences, an MS in Management and years of research experience in the food industry with Kraft Foods and in academia. All our medical writers are American scientists with writing training and medical writing experience.

Typical projects include medical writing, editing and proofreading, new supplement formulations and consulting in medical, science and health fields. There is no job too big or small. Projects include articles, e-books, web copy, presentations, grant proposals, literature searches, textbooks, dissertation/thesis edits, sales letters, white papers, brochures, business plans, supplement formulations, consultations and more.
Service Description
We work fast, allowing you to give us large medical writing and consulting projects with a tight deadline, knowing that it will be done on time and be of the highest quality.

Our preference is to develop long-term, profitable business relationships with companies desiring high quality medical writing and consulting, rather than do spot-project work. This allows us to gain more of an understanding of your particular products and services, so we can better fit your needs. We know, and guarantee, that we can do a better job than any previous science writers or consultants you have had... Give us a call and let's explore the possibilities!

If your current need is shorter term, please be sure to check out our rates below.

- Biomedical sciences

- Nutritional research
- Complementary and alternative medicine

- Biotech and nutraceutical start-up business consulting

We have written about medical research, pharmaceutical drugs, dietary supplements, food ingredients, herbal remedies, the mind-body connection, self-help and many other areas. Let our professional experience help you in your next medical writing or editing task.

We can plan studies, work with contract researchers and analyze the results to determine the effectiveness of your supplement.

Consultations are available for product endorsements, video recordings, in-person brainstorming and more.

Payment Terms
For all non-escrow projects under $300 an 80% payment is required up-front.

For all projects over $300 a non-refundable 35% deposit is required up-front before we start working.

For escrow projects, once funds have been released for the deposit and funds have been escrowed for the next milestone work begins, and work will be delivered for subsequent milestones when the previous milestone has been paid for and the subsequent one has been funded.

For non-escrow projects, work will not be delivered for a milestone unless the previous milestone has been paid for.

We have a satisfaction guarantee, and will gladly make changes until you are 100% satisfied with the end result. If you are not satisfied and cannot provide detailed feedback on what changes would make you satisfied with the work, we require 80% payment of the full project price and shared copyright of the document in order to be properly compensated for our time.

For any buyers that abandon the project without paying, we reserve the right to sell the work and/or send your account to a collection agency as well as file a suit in civil court if you are in the US.

For local buyers requiring an in-person consult or for travel to meetings, that will be billed separately at a pre-negotiated rate.

APPROXIMATE RATES (may vary depending on the complexity of the project):

Writing ranges from $0.25 to $1.25 per word
Editing ranges from $0.05 to $0.25 per word
Proofreading ranges from $0.01 to $0.05 per word

Add on approximately 10% to the project total for Elance fees.

Re-writes that do not involve new research are generally half the price of normal writing projects.

NOTE:

Most single spaced documents without images have about 500 words per page.

Double spaced documents or those with images and/or formatting for extra "white space" have about 250 words per page.

Simple images and special formatting are all free, but need to requested.
