Medical Editing Jobs
Part- and Full-Time
We are an English language support service for senior academics in all academic and scientific areas, including engineering, mathematics, medicine, economics, law, management, the physical and biological sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. We offer editing jobs to candidates with knowledge and experience in one or more of these fields of study. At present, we especially have medical editing jobs available.
Remote – Part-Time or Full-Time Position
We currently have medical editing jobs available for experienced editors to edit scholarly articles submitted to academic and scientific journals in the biological or medical science field.
Medical editing jobs offer a fabulous career opportunity for those who wish to set their own hours and work remotely. Communication with us is via email and all editing is conducted on electronic documents using your own computer. Some of our team members edit full time, but these positions are also perfect for those who wish to supplement their income with part-time work – retired scientists and doctors, for instance, who wish to keep up with advances in their fields, new degree recipients who are not yet fully employed and stay-at-home parents with free time available for editing.
The rates of pay start at £6 ($8.50 USD) per 1,000 words, and a FREE medical editing course is provided.
All transactions between PRS and medical editors are carried out electronically via email: PRS sends the editor an article (usually in Microsoft Word) via email, and the medical editor returns the edited version in the same manner within a set amount of time.
Proficiency in the English language is absolutely vital for all applicants for the medical editing jobs. Many of our clients are not native speakers of English, but they write and publish much of their research in the English language and look to us for help correcting and perfecting their documents for success. Our medical editors must therefore be native speakers of English who possess a solid understanding of the patterns and rules of written English.
All applicants for our medical editing jobs must also have earned a master’s or higher degree, with some of our editors holding PhDs in their areas of specialisation. This requirement ensures that every one of our medical editors is familiar with the formal prose style appropriate for reporting research in the medical and biological sciences, as well as with the appropriate structures and contents of journal articles and other documents intended for publication. All our medical editors must be familiar with the referencing methods such as AMA and Vancouver commonly used in medical writing, and instructional experience in the field is an asset as well.
The ability to work efficiently in Microsoft Word is necessary to succeed at the medical editing jobs. Our clients usually send us their documents as Word files, which are then edited on-screen using Word’s Track Changes and Comment functions to inform authors about corrections and other changes to the text. Experience working with LaTeX is also beneficial, as a few of our clients submit their writing in that format.
Respect for the research and writing of our clients is expected of all applicants for our medical editing jobs, as is an understanding of the importance of confidentiality when working with unpublished research. Our best editors are known for their perfectionism and keen attention to details of every imaginable kind. They are also well organised, carefully planning their tasks to ensure that each and every document is carefully edited and returned in time to meet the client’s deadline.

Perks of a Medical Editing Job
You can choose your workload: one week you can work only 10 hours and another week you can work 25 hours.
Every medical editor receives prompt weekly payments for the work completed in that period.
Working from Home
Our medical editors enjoy working from home, because it fits perfectly around family life.
FREE Editing Course
Every candidate will be offered a FREE medical editing course for scientific papers while receiving full pay.
Our medical editors can stay connected to their medical field and read the newest research.
An internet connection, a laptop and working from home leave our medical editors with a low carbon footprint.
