Octopus Editing was founded in 2017 after discussions with scientists expressing their frustration with other commercial English language editing services. My goal was to provide a service combining first-rate language editing with my experience in writing and reviewing manuscripts, grants, and theses in the life sciences. Since its beginning, Octopus Editing has worked with scientists, from a variety of fields in the life sciences, to produce publication-ready documents not only free of errors of spelling, grammar, and word choice, but that are also logically structured and scientifically polished.
