It was a pleasure to work with Claire! She was always quick to reply and did a splendid job on my manuscript. I particularly appreciated that she answered all of my remaining questions free of charge. I wholeheartedly recommend her editing service.

Claire came highly recommended by her clients, and I have been working with her for four years now. She is a true professional in every sense of the word and exactly knows what a well-written manuscript needs. Her work is thoroughly well written, and always on time. It’s been a pleasure working with Claire, and I can highly recommend her.

Claire Bacon performed a very quick and thorough editing including grammar, spelling and wording, readability, style as well as evaluation of scientific terms and abbreviations, and logical issues. She was of great assistance with specific issues of journal style, author guidelines and requirements of the specific journal we chose to submit the manuscript to. All corrections and comments were clearly written, consistent and comprehensible. I can highly recommend her editing service for scientific manuscripts.
