Description


Freelance copy editors needed for hard-science journal articles

Duties and Responsibilities:

A leading publishing-services company is looking for freelance copy editors to copyedit science journal articles in various hard-science fields, such as physics, optics and photonics, aeronautics and astronautics, geology and seismology, and engineering. Copy editors must implement journal-provided style guidelines as well as perform standard copyediting functions relating to grammar, syntax, punctuation, etc.

Required Experience:

Prior experience copyediting highly technical science journal articles required; a background in one or more of the hard sciences is helpful. (Experience or background in a medical or life science field is less relevant.) Copy editors should be flexible in software usage--many of the manuscripts need to be copyedited in Word using track changes but some may need to be copyedited on PDFs using the Acrobat text edit functions.

Salary/Hours:

Freelancers work remotely and need to be able to commit to at least 8 to 10 hours of work per week. Payment ranges from $5 to $7 per published journal page.
