About Alum Canyon Editing

Alum Canyon Editing around the Web

Alum Canyon Editing, LLC was founded in 2009 after the Managing Editor performed plant biology research as an undergraduate and graduate student, then managed animal and plant genetics, molecular genetics, and biochemistry laboratories over more than 17 years, with a brief detour through the legal field between 2005 and 2009.

The Managing Editor has formal training and extensive experience in science, scientific writing, and editing scientific and technical writing, including academic legal writing. Further, with professional certification in English-language editing from UC Berkeley Extension, Alum Canyon Editing can help you generate crisp and precise written work.

Alum Canyon Editing provides high-level editing Services to scientists anywhere in the world whose native language is not English, especially for manuscripts requiring extensive revisions. The Managing Editor typically provides estimates for editing manuscripts in biological or biomedical subject areas, although manuscripts in other scientific or technical subject areas such as biomedical engineering, biofuels engineering, or particulate monitoring may be submitted for an estimate. If the topic is out of the Managing Editor’s comfort zone, you will be referred to other reputable editing companies with subject-matter experts in several areas.
