eCORRECTOR news 2019 – more tenders awarded and growth in our network of proofreaders
New and returning institutes and journals
We are pleased to announce that we have signed a new cooperation agreement with Karol Marcinkowski Medical University in Poznań and have begun to receive initial orders from academics based at this institution. The papers we have proofread are both innovative and contain interesting and highly publishable results.
We are also pleased to announce that we won a competitive tender to provide proofreading for the Scientific Journals of the Maritime University of Szczecin. We are delighted to continue to provide proofreading for the fourth year. We also continue to provide proofreading services, for a second year, for journals published by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management Research – National Research Institute in Warsaw and the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology. Our high standards of quality assurance (including plagiarism checks) and case-by-case assessment of academic texts mean ensure we continually meet the standard expected by the journal editors.
Over the past few months, as well as biomedical manuscripts, we received an increasing number of papers on sociology, marketing and management, which has made it necessary for us to extend our collaboration with expert proofreaders in these and related fields.
Growth of our network of academic proofreader
Over the past few months, we had added new PhD proofreaders to our base of academic experts. Particular highlights are a highly regarded researcher and proofreader based in the USA. She obtained her PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology from SUNY Buffalo in Buffalo, New York. Her research and publications (which includes high impact publications in Clinical Cancer Research) have focused on cancer immunotherapies and their underlying molecular mechanisms. Another recent standout proofreader is a retired Professor from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Throughout his career, he worked at many universities including the University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, University of Kentucky, University of Sogang (Seoul, Korea) and many others. He is an author of over 200 peer-reviewed articles, which were published in i.e. Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, Academy of Management Journal, Personnel Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of International Business Studies. One of his articles from the Journal of Marketing was ranked as one of the ten most influential texts in marketing literature of the 20th century! He is also an editor of an academic journal and a co-author of 3 books.
Over the past 6 months, we have been working towards upgrading our website to make it more user-friendly. For universities and publishing houses we have prepared a special brochure on eCORRECTOR, where you can find out more about our services and learn how we can provide language solutions for your needs.
