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 editorial advice or a language edit from one of our highly skilled volunteers. For details see: Apply for a JEDI Award.

Scientific editing, editorial advice and presentation feedback are charged at $139/hour (academic), $225/hour (biotech). Language editing is $0.11/word ($0.2/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 $65/hour (academic) or $98/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.
