2017 ELSS Substantive Editing Challenge

ELSS, Inc. provides the highest practical standard of substantive editing of research manuscripts to our clients, who are primarily Japanese researchers. 
Can you meet our exacting standards?
 
 
ELSS roster editors: 
Preserve the authors’ intended meaning
Fix or at least point out essentially all ambiguities and problems in grammar, spelling, clarity, consistency, coherence, concision, flow, logic, and cogency
Ease the path of readers through dense, technical prose
Impose journal format and style as explained in the instructions to authors
Comment about the science
 
 
Skillful substantive editors are reliable, highly intelligent, attentive to detail, and conscientious. Although no writing or editing is perfect, our roster editors are effective writers who read between the lines and are perfectionists to some extent. 
 
Applicant qualifications
Applicants should meet both  the following criteria:
 
1. Either {a bachelor's degree or higher in a science or engineering field}, or 
{both 2 years' scientific research or engineering experience and 2 or more authored papers in peer-reviewed publications}
 
2. At least 1 year of full-time-equivalent experience substantively editing manuscripts written for peer-reviewed research journals. Exclude manuscripts on which you are an author.
 
Other relevant experience and qualifications can be considered.
