Get an insightful peer review with in-depth feedback and applicable recommendations to improve your article or dissertation before anybody else sees it — you do not get a second chance to make a first impression.
I have a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan (in the USA) and did research in Singapore and at the University of Cambridge. I am first author of a dozen journal articles in materials science and applied physics and in applied mathematics, including two in Physical Review Letters (and even some in finance and philosophy).
Let me spot weaknesses in your article so editors do not get a chance to
(also works with dissertations and professors)
Get in-depth feedback and practical advice
I will review the article and provide you with a report, similar to that of journal referees (the good, thorough ones, that is), giving you detailed feedback and pertinent recommendations on topics such as:
- what an editor or referee may have minded in your paper (but will not get a chance to);
- how to make your case more clearly and strongly in the paper;
- what lacks detail or is overly long (especially for tight formats);
- how to best showcase your results (especially through the efficient use of figures);
- how to make your title, abstract and cover letter more appealing to editors of journals like Physical Review Letters (two for two myself);
- what extra work or what direction of investigation may strengthen your manuscript (for the current paper or a future one: your call);
- whether there may be valuable conclusions you could have derived from your data (or interesting special cases or possible avenues for future work) but failed to spot — you have no idea how much I can read in a figure: try me.
What I will and will not do
- I will not talk about your article to third parties.
- I will not take over your article: I only tell you what I would have done had this been my paper — you make the final calls (no need to apologize).
- I will use either Word or LaTex.
- I will edit the language (spelling, grammar, flow of English), if this is part of what you request. While this is in no way a requirement, it is clearly more difficult to make pointed recommendations if the article ambiguous or hard to understand.
- I will not guarantee that your manuscript will be accepted for review or publication by the journal of your choice. Your paper will be better, but as we all know the publication of scientific articles is neither deterministic nor foreseeable.
