This is a quick post to let you know what Moravec Science Editing is up to in the new year!
In February, I will begin taking edits for research papers directly from clients. To keep things simple, I’ll be offering one level of edit, that is, substantive edits. In addition to grammar, spelling and punctuation, I will make corrections for flow, organization, and technical correctness. I will also look at the content to ensure there are no gaps in the paper (for example, no mention of future work in the conclusion). My specialist topics are i) artificial intelligence, especially deep learning, ii) computer vision and image processing, and iii) natural language processing. However, I can edit most computer science, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics topics. If you’d like to contact me about these services, I’d be more than happy to hear from you!
In addition, my book, Editing LaTeX in Word, will be published 1 March 2022. This book is aimed at a very specific audience: freelance academic editors who would like to edit LaTeX files for their clients. If you’re such an editor, the contents of this book should give you a good basis for building these skills without needing to take a full course on LaTeX. In contrast, if you are familiar with LaTeX, this book can show you how to use the features of Word to make the editing easier.
In February, I will have a few advance copies that I will be happy to make available to readers in exchange for a fair review. If you would like a copy, please let me know!
