Schedule an Editing Project

Typically this will be a first draft of the Specific Aims page (or equivalent), and ideally it will be submitted by 2 months before the funding agency deadline. Timing of submission of the revised version and other documents to be edited can subsequently be discussed with the editor. Should you find that you cannot adhere to this schedule, please let us know as soon as possible.
If you have a preferred editor you'd like to work with, please select from this list. If you do not have a preference, select "No preference."
Select one or more levels of editing you prefer. "Mechanics" is included for all projects.

Billing

  • For billing see our hourly rates and project time ranges.
  • Clients from the University of Iowa who are not affiliated with a department that fully subsidizes the SERCC editing services (see list of supporting departments) should provide an MFK.
  • Clients from outside the University of Iowa will be billed by invoice and they will be able to pay by credit card or check.

Once you submit this form we will contact you to confirm that your project has been scheduled. In the meantime you can submit your document(s) to COM-ScientificEditing@uiowa.edu. The documents should be submitted in Word format and, other than the Specific Aims page, they will ideally be submitted together. If time is an issue, certain subsections of the Research Strategy can be submitted as they are ready, but the smallest acceptable units are:

  • Specific Aims page (or equivalent); ideally the first draft will be submitted by 2 months, and a revision by 4 weeks, before the funding agency deadline.
  • Significance and Innovation sections (or equivalents)
  • Approach section (or equivalent)
  • Any others (e.g., Abstract, Project Narrative, Introduction, Biosketches, Vertebrate Animals)

We're looking forward to working with you on your project.
