  • Glen has edited several of my papers in Economics and Marketing before I submitted them to journals. His editing really increased the quality of the English language and eliminated the grammar mistakes of my papers. Glen is very reliable and efficient. I can get electronic versions of my edited work through email. It's very convenient. I have recommended him to all my friends who need editing. (Economics PhD student, UBC)

  • Glen has edited several of my manuscripts in biochemistry and analytical chemistry the past five years. He has significantly increased the quality of the English language as well as the stringency of the manuscripts. These improvements have made it much more easier to thereafter publish these manuscripts in international peer-reviewed scientific journals. Because I am a non-native English writer I have problems with grammar. etc. and Glen has helped me to improve this. Glen has also helped me, as well as others at Octapharma (a biopharmaceutical company with +1000 employees), to edit texts and posters to be presented at scientific conferences, and we are all very satisfied and grateful for his help. Glen is very efficient and reliable and finishes the editing on time. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has scientific texts that need to be proofread/edited. (G. Karlsson, PhD, Senior Scientist, Octapharma Ltd., Stockholm, Sweden)
