My editing philosophy

Although my first goal is to clarify your manuscript, another important goal is to demonstrate to you that there are different ways of expressing an idea and that some ways are much better than others.

After seeing my edits and comments, you should better understand the reasons why one alternative sentence is better than another. You should see and learn new sentence patterns, and you should be able to apply what you have learned when writing future papers. To help writers learn and to remind myself about important principles, I have developed an on-line Revision Guide.
