My standard rate is 100 CHF/hour. There is a surcharge for rush jobs, and a discount for projects that will take more than 12 hours. Since I accept only jobs that require content (substantive) editing, my speed will depend upon the quality and complexity of your work. Speed can range between 650 words per hour for the slowest jobs, and 2000 words an hour for very fast jobs. I will be happy to provide you with an estimate if you email me a sample of your work. (All samples will be kept confidential and destroyed if you select another editor.)
If you would like more information about the following courses, please feel free to contact me: Writing a Journal Article… And Getting It Published (1 day or 3 day), or Sentences for Scientists (1 day). I have also designed a series of 2-4 hour workshops on topics including Writing an Abstract, Scientific Storytelling, Writing Strong Grant Applications, Improving Slides for Scientific Presentations, Outlining the Scientific Paper, and others. If you are interested in a course, please supply the location of the course and possible dates for teaching at your institution. I am often booked up well in advance, so the more notice you can give me, the better.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
