UF Postdoctoral Editors Association

We provide free, confidential editing of manuscripts, abstracts, grant proposals, and slides/posters for meetings or other scholarly writings.

The UF Postdoctoral Editors Association is comprised of postdoctoral associates and fellows and sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. This group will enhance scholarly communication by assisting postdoctoral authors with editing of written documents for language usage, punctuation, and organization. This service will be most advantageous to postdoctoral scholars for whom English is a second language, but the service is open and free to all postdoctoral associates and fellows at the University of Florida. Our goal is to facilitate postdoc-mentor interactions during the writing process by minimizing time spent on basic writing skills. Our volunteer editors primarily review submissions for clarity of meaning; we offer no or minimal scientific review of manuscripts because this content should reflect critical thinking of the postdoctoral scholar and their mentor(s).
