Who Is a Scientific Editor?

A scientific editor is someone who has a strong background in science and equally adept at writing and editing. They use their skills in order to help ensure that scientific material published in magazines and journals adhere to the appropriate rules and guidelines, such as AMA, APA etc This also includes ensuring that the language used is appropriate, and that the information and facts provided in the reviewed article are scientifically accurate. 

What Does a Scientific Editor Do?

A scientific editor’s main responsibility is to perform the dual role of a scientific content or copy editor as well as a scientific domain expert, in order to ensure that any scientific article published in a journal, magazine or manuscript is both grammatically correct as well as scientifically accurate.  This is a diverse job, and encompasses several different duties such as,

  • Proofreading, editing and refining the tone and language of the article
  • Assessing the science mentioned in the article and making changes if necessary
  • Critically assessing the article and making recommendations.
  • Ensuring the article adheres to editorial guidelines, standards and policies.
  • Identify and recommend topics for the journal or magazine to commission new topics around.

Apart from these, scientific content and copy editors need to keep themselves updated with industry guidelines, and periodically establish these standards for the writers they collaborate with. They also need to set the tone and narrative of the magazine they work with, which includes deciding the topics of discussion and providing literature references for these topics.

Qualifications for a Scientific Editor

Scientific editors typically have a bachelor’s degree in a particular discipline of science, alongside a minor in either media writing, english or journalism. The latter is particularly important for scientific content and copy editors, in terms of equipping themselves with the skills needed to proofread and edit an article or manuscript effectively.

Scientific journal editors may also equip themselves with additional skills that can help enhance their all-round game within the publishing industry, such as 

  • Publishing techniques and editing skills.
  • Graphic designing and computer software. 
  • Communication skills, both verbal and written.

This helps editors for scientific journals offer a diverse range of skills to their organization, complementing their scientific knowledge effectively.

Eventually. scientific editors may also choose to pursue a masters or a PhD. This tops up their extensive writing and editing experience, and provides them with a niche knowledge of the particular field they operate in.

Benefits of Hiring Freelance Scientific Editors

Whilst bigger organizations work with in-house scientific editors and proofreaders, this might not be economically feasible for smaller organizations. Here’s where freelancers who offer scientific proofreading services or manuscript editing services come in handy,

With most scientific publications requiring scientific journal editors on-demand and on a flexible basis, freelancers can offer multiple benefits, such as

  • Cost-effective scientific editing skills on a pay-as-you-go basis.
  • Time-effective collaboration, as these scientific editors can be hired as and when the demand arises
  • Wider range of options, with most freelance networks typically hosting a large number of independent freelance scientific editors and proofreaders.

Companies can build up a pipeline of these on-demand scientific editing experts by accessing them via freelance platforms, helping them avail the best scientific editing and proofreading services at reasonable rates, and churn out a regular stream of high-quality scientific articles for their audience. 

Cost of Hiring a Scientific Editor

The cost involved in hiring a scientific editor varies according to the exact requirements of the project. A scientific content editor or copy editor, for instance, will quote different prices compared to someone offering scientific manuscript editing services or journal services.

On average, freelance scientific editors are less expensive than in-house ones, especially since onboarding charges, employee benefits and other hiring costs can be eliminated.

A qualified scientific editor charges upwards of $100/hour up to $25-300, based on the exact skillset required. If the expert is charging by the word, expect to pay around $5 for 1000 words of proofreading, writing and editing.

Freelance scientific editors on Kolabtree are available for as low as $35 per hour, going all the way up to $150 - $200/hour. This varies according to their expertise, years of experience and project scope. 

How to Post a Project to Hire Scientific Editors

Before posting a project, spend some time to consider the following factors

  • The precise nature and scope of the project, and the niche skills required
  • The budget and duration of the proposed project
  • The experience you want the scientific editor to possess

Now, post a project on freelance platforms like Kolabtree, and use the factors mentioned above to shortlist experts successfully. Mentioning the exact skills and experience required will help you avoid irrelevant proposals and make sure you attract bids from scientific editors matching your niche requirements.
