Scientific editing is a specialized editor who focuses on assuring the effective communication of research findings. In science, complicated facts and analysis need to be explained in a clear and comprehensible manner, which is usually the task of the scientific editor.
Scientific journals around the world tend to be strict with regards to the quality of studies and the clarity of the communication, reason why scientific editing has received more attention over the years. It ultimately ensures that science is expressed correctly and effectively.
