Grant And Manuscript Success Secrets Of Top Biomedical PIs

Some labs publish new papers every month and get millions in grant money. How do they do it? No, it’s not that those PIs work more than you do.

Their biggest secret: they leverage their time, doing what they and only they can do and delegate everything else to the right people for each task.

No one knows what you know – the big picture view, the why behind everything, all the details, the right papers to cite, where projects are going, etc. You always need to be the brains behind everything your lab publishes. Every paper and every grant application needs your input and feedback. But you don’t need to be the writer and/or editor for everything. It limits how many papers and grant applications you can do and stops your lab from growing.

Top PIs work with experienced scientific writers and editors, quickly giving them the information they need to properly write or edit their papers and grant applications. The PI reads each draft, gives input and requests changes, then adds their finishing touches to the final draft.

Give this technique a try. The Med Writers is a team of biomedical PhD scientists trained as scientific writers, and available to help write or edit your lab’s papers and grant applications.

Can You Really Find a Great Science Writer for Five Dollars?

The simple answer to that question is: NO, you cannot find a great science writer for five dollars! Sure, there are sites out there, such as Fiverr, that are advertising science writers who will write you an article for five dollars; but if what you are looking for is quality and expertise, you are not going to find it for five dollars.

I’m guessing that if you are looking for a great science writer it is for one of two reasons:

  1. You have a great new product or service that can be backed by science, and you need someone to take the scientific data and translate it onto the written page in such a way that it will be understandable and appealing to a lay audience, and help them to see the benefits of purchasing what you are offering
  2. You are a researcher or scientist who is looking to have your research published in a peer-reviewed journal and need someone to write up your findings in way that will get it accepted to your chosen journal.

Regardless of which of those scenarios describes your needs, one thing is sure, if you want to accomplish your goal you need a great science writer that has the right education and experience.  Ideally, your great science writer should have a science degree. That way you know that they will be able to find and understand the scientific studies needed to complete your project. Of course, not everyone with a science degree is necessarily a good writer though. Therefore, in addition to a scientific education, your science writer should have proven writing experience.

We are a team of American PhD and MS level science writers, with degrees in everything from Biomedical Sciences to Neuroscience and Psychology to Pharmacology and Botany. In addition to the right education, our great science writers are all native English speakers who have extensive writing training and experience. We carefully test all of our science writers to make sure that they can deliver the quality that our clients need and deserve.

So, whether you are trying to get a paper published or just get word out about your new product or service, contact us to see how our team of  great science writers can help you accomplish your goal.

Professional Scientific Manuscript Editing: The Key to Getting Your Manuscript Published

Furthermore, several of our science editors are adept at editing in both American and British English.

Our scientific manuscript editing services are available at different levels to suit your budget and needs. Your scientific manuscript can get a basic proofread, wherein our science editors will check for punctuation, spelling and grammar.

If needed, our science editors can also format the manuscript and the EndNote references to the style of the journal you plan to submit it to.

Professors: Manuscript Editing CAN Be Fast and Easy

See if this situation describes you.  As a busy scientist you have too many things on your list.  Of course, your top priority is getting new manuscripts published!  The graduate students and post docs in your lab are hard at work doing new studies and producing interesting data.  You have them write up their manuscripts up, but then you have to put in a lot of time editing those manuscripts before they can be submitted to journals for publication.  This is especially true if English is not the first language for some of the graduate students and post docs.  While they may be incredibly talented and devoted scientists, they definitely are not science manuscript writers!

These poorly-written manuscripts start to pile up on your computer’s hard drive, just waiting for you to edit them. However, editing these manuscripts seems like such a daunting task that you find yourself wanting to put it off.  If editing manuscripts is not something you are good at, it may just be too overwhelming to even think about…so you keep putting it off.

How do I know your story so well? Because I’ve heard your story from several of our clients. You are not alone. This inability to quickly edit manuscripts is actually the case for most professors. Let us help you edit manuscripts the way that we have helped so many of your colleagues. We could be the reason that competing labs are able to get so many manuscripts published each year! It’s time for you to catch up. Hiring PhD manuscript editors is the secret.

Here’s how it works. You email us a copy of your manuscript (we’ll happily sign an NDA first if you want). We will take a look at the amount of work to be done and send you quotes for our 3 Levels of Manuscript Editing.

Level 1: This manuscript editing service is a proofread, where spelling, grammar and English usage problems are fixed to increase the clarity so it is easier to read and understand.  This includes looking for mistakes and correcting them.  This wouldn’t include any major changes or rearrangements to the manuscript.

Level 2: This manuscript editing service is the proofread outlined above in Level 1 plus a more in-depth editing to make major changes or rearrangements as necessary to improve the quality of the writing.  This includes looking for any places where the science doesn’t make sense, and correcting it if possible, or making a note for the author on how to improve it (for e.g. missing references or explanations).

Level 3:  This manuscript editing service is the edit outlined above in Level 1 and Level 2 plus formatting the manuscript and the EndNote references to match the style of the journal you plan to submit it to.

Once you pick the manuscript editing service that best suits your needs, we will get started.  You just need to authorize your university department to pay us from your grant or other budget and we’ll invoice them directly.  Then you can get back to your to-do list, while we edit your manuscript.  It will be done in anywhere from just a few days to 2 weeks.

Email us now to get PhD manuscript editors working on your projects ASAP.  Our email address is at the top right of the page in a green box.
