Physical sciences and engineering
editing and proofreading services


Writing in the realms of physical sciences and engineering is no mean feat. The challenge doesn’t lie just in conveying complex ideas but also in doing so in a manner that is both technically accurate and easy to comprehend. That’s where we come in.

Our editorial team is not just adept at editing; they also bring specialised expertise in scientific and engineering disciplines. This ensures that they’re intimately familiar with not just the technical language but also the units, conventions and methodologies unique to these fields. This is a critical advantage that generalist editors simply cannot provide.

Because of their specialised expertise, our editors can help you maintain the rigorous standards of scientific communication while also enhancing the clarity and readability of your work. We understand the balance that must be struck between technical precision and accessible writing, and we’re committed to helping you achieve that in your own work.

A trusted name in STEM editing and proofreading

When it comes to editing in the fields of physical sciences and engineering, we understand the importance of adhering to specific style and referencing guidelines. Our editors are proficient in a wide array of style guides commonly used in these disciplines, including IEEE and CSE. Whether you’re submitting to a journal or preparing a technical report, we can tailor our services to meet the unique formatting and referencing requirements of your target publication or institution.

Beyond these standard style guides, we are more than happy to accommodate special requests. If your paper needs to be formatted according to a specific journal’s guidelines or any other specialized format, rest assured that our team is equipped to handle your specific requirements.

Our commitment to you doesn’t end when we return your edited document. We believe that after-care support is central to a comprehensive editing service. If you have any questions or require clarifications on your edited document, we’re always here to assist you. This enduring support ensures that you not only receive a polished document but also gain a deeper understanding of the editorial decisions made by our expert editors.

How we’ll edit and proofread your document

Our experienced editors are available 24/7/365 to rigorously review and comprehensively improve your writing.

Microsoft Word Microsoft Word’s Track Changes

We use Word’s Track Changes feature to highlight our amendments. We have alternative options for other formats, including PDF and Overleaf/LaTeX.

Improved style and appropriate register

We improve your style, diction and tone to ensure that your document is written in the appropriate register.

I’ve changed “needn’t occur” to “is unnecessary” to enhance the formality of the text. In general, contractions (needn’t, can’t, won’t, etc.) should be avoided in academic writing.

Perfect clarity and structure

We’ll correct or query awkward phrasing and ambiguity to ensure that your writing is clearly expressed and easy to understand.

I would recommend being more specific here; do the physiological properties of FES systems create a challenging control problem or do they have to solve or address a challenging control problem?

Dr Smith, PhD

Grammar, punctuation and readability

We fix errors related to grammar, punctuation and readability.

When a system, theory, model, or procedure is named after two or more entities, the nouns are conventionally joined using an en dash. The same rule applies whenever the elements of a compound are considered equivalent, so the phrases “parent–child relationship”, “cost–benefit analysis”, etc., use an en dash rather than a hyphen.

Dr Smith, PhD

General feedback and advice

We provide feedback and advice on the composition of the writing, both within the document and in the Editor’s Summary Report (for documents over 3,000 words).

To make sure an abbreviation is consistently applied throughout the document, a useful tip is to search for the term using Control F (Command F on a Mac).

Dr Smith, PhD

Humanizing AI text

We enhance the readability of your text by focusing on the subtle cues that make your writing feel genuinely human.

LLMs are often wordy and overly formal. I’ve toned down both of those elements to help this email sound more natural.
