Grant Proposal Editing

Writing a grant proposal? Our Scientific Editing and English Language Editing services can help you secure research funding.

Scientific Editing

Our editors

Our Scientific Editors:

  • have experience of writing and editing grant proposals for major funding bodies, including ERC, MRC, Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, NIH and NSF
  • are PhD-qualified in a relevant scientific field
  • have generally worked previously as journal editors, in many cases selective journals, so they are used to evaluating impact

The edits

Scientific Editing examines your grant proposal in great detail, making many edits and comments to help:

  • Emphasize the significance and potential impact of the work, including across disciplines
  • Ensure that the proposal states a clear and appropriately justified aim, and specific, clear and measurable objectives are provided that relate to that aim
  • Assess how strongly the objectives are reflected in the description of work to be undertaken
  • Review how well the methods and expected outcomes, are communicated, and that risk and contingency planning are accounted for

English Editing

Our editors

We have 1,200 language editors. All are native English speakers and have completed or are undertaking a Master’s, PhD or MD.

Your grant proposal is matched with editors who specialize in the same subject area so they are fluent, not only in English, but also in the terminology and conventions used in your field.

Two levels

Our English Language Editing service is available in two levels, Silver and Gold:

  • Silver corrects errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation, rephrases sentences that sound unnatural or confusing, and makes your style sound more professional.
  • Gold edits provides additional edits to Silver and makes further improvements to the style and phrasing. It also provides a personalized summary of the editing to develop your writing skills for the future.
