I am Joe Shaw, the president of Shaw Resources. We specialize in technical and scientific writing services, mostly for the life sciences, but we also provide proof reading in other areas such as sociology, psychology, and even geography. We are a small operation and not a large agency, so we can give your document the science writing and science editing attention it deserves. You could pay for an online scientific writing course, but that costs hundreds or thousands of of dollars and many weeks to complete. Let us provide you scientific writing services in a short time.
Why hire Shaw Resources? There are several reasons
1. We know the science behind your document. We have trained in many areas of the biological and biotechnological sciences. We conduct scientific literature searches if needed to support your writing. We will understand what message you wish to convey, how to convey it, and what audience it is intended for.
3. As a small operation with limited overhead, we can charge less for professional services than a larger agency can. We provide fast document turnaround, often overnight.
4. We do not farm work out to distant scientists. Most of our work is done in house, but some is done by colleagues in academia or industry; these colleagues are people we know and have worked with before. The writing/editing/proofing is done by Shaw Resources, but our colleagues provide fact checking and disciplinary overview.
5. Collectively our expertise includes:
- Accomplished use of Microsoft Office tools (including Publisher for posters), Endnote, Acrobat, WordPress, Documentum, SharePoint, and FTP file transfer
