Writing, editing and proofreading

Science writing and editing is Green Ink’s flagship service. We’ve a reputation for writing that is well informed and enjoyable to read. Our writers and editors are experts. Short communications, synthesizing the results of research for policy and decision makers, are a speciality and we can also take on longer assignments, including whole reports or books.

We write for websites, blogs and e-newsletters as well as for hard-copy publications. And we can command a variety of styles and assume different degrees of knowledge, depending on your audience.

We can copy-edit material that you have created. We offer three tiers of editing: substantive edit, copy-edit and light edit.

Everything we work on receives at least two rounds of proofreading and correction, one on our side and one on yours. This is the minimum necessary to ensure high quality.

Whether we are writing material for you or editing your draft, we always work to your brief and you always remain the owner of the final product.

Here are our services:
 

Writing

Let us tell your story. Whether you’ve developed new technology, analysed the impact of past research or have a new approach to propose, our expert writers can research the background, interview key people and pull together the relevant information in clear, well written prose tailored to the chosen medium – be it a website, a printed brochure or brief, or an e-newsletter.
 

Editing

Editing is a skilled job – and we have the skills. We offer a three-tiered service. We can do a light copy-edit for spelling, grammar, style and consistency plus check the references. Or we can do a more in-depth edit, challenging ideas or data that don’t convince, pointing out gaps or imbalances in the argument, cutting repetitive text, and creating and styling references. Finally, we can do a full substantive edit, which may involve all of the above plus considerable rewriting and restructuring. We are comfortable handling complex technical and scientific material. And when we are done, you can be sure that you will have copy of the highest quality.
 

Proofreading and correction

Careful proofreading and correction is an important part of the production process, ensuring the standard of both print and electronic products is high. Everything we work on receives at least two rounds of proofreading and correction, one on our side and one on yours. This is the minimum necessary to ensure high quality.
