Editing and grant writing

Editing time will depend upon the quality of your English and the state of your manuscript. 

Editing speed for manuscripts by non-native speakers of English can rangee between 400-1200 words, so I must see a draft or a previous manuscript before I can provide a reliable cost estimate.

The cost of grant coaching will depend on the amount and type of support you require. Inquire for details. 

If you elect not to work with me, I will immediately delete your manuscript and materials. If I do not hear back from you after sending an estimate, I will delete your manuscript 14 days later.

Members of the University of Bern community with an ILIAS account can register for my free courses, offered through the Medical Library. These are also available to participants in Switzerland for a fee. (University of Bern affiliates without an ILIAS account may take these courses for a reduced fee),  

If you represent a Swiss institution, I would be happy to create an on-site or custom course for you and offer it under the auspices of the Medical Library at UniBE.

If you are outside Switzerland and want me to offer any of the workshops I’ve designed either online or on-site, or if you would like me to create a custom course for you, the same rates apply. I bill directly for courses outside Switzerland, as a freelancer.

Custom Courses

I can usually create customized courses without a lot of extra work. Contact me if you have special requests about the subject matter, or if your group requires more intensive or individualized coaching.

Inquire about reduced rates if your institution is in a low-resource country.
