Scientists who belong to groups that are underrepresented in the scientific community may be eligible for a Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) award from the Life Science Editors Foundation (LSEF). These awards provide up to 10 hours of editorial support, strategic advice, and constructive feedback from one of our top-flight volunteers. The deadline is the 10th of every month. Apply for a JEDI Award.

Scientific editing, editorial advice and presentation feedback are charged at $130/hour (academic), $200/hour (biotech). Language editing is $0.1/word ($0.14/word biotech). Our regular turnaround time is generally 10 business days. Shorter turnarounds can be requested in the comments box (<72h requests incur a 20% rush fee). Please upload a Word file of the text and cover letter, if you have one, and a pdf file of the figures. Specific requests, target journal(s) or grant application instructions, can be added to the comments box.

Illustrations are charged at $60/hour (academic) or $90/hour (biotech). We estimate 10-15 hours for a figure and up to 25 hours for a cover illustration; turnaround time for illustrations is generally 1-2 weeks.

All prices are in USD. Our editorial coordinator will be in touch shortly.
