I'm a freelance publishing and research integrity consultant with an interest in open access publishing and publication ethics. I'm very familiar with critical appraisal, peer review, journal policies, reporting guidelines, and editorial decision-making. I worked as an editor for BioMed Central 2003-09 and the PLOS ONE 2010-16. I headed the research integrity team at Hindawi 2016-22. In 2022, I was a research integrity manager at the charity the UK Research Integrity Office (UKRIO) 2022-24. I'm on the council of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and Treasurer of the European Association of Science Editors (EASE). Working as a science editor I have experience of handling the peer review and critical appraisal of research from all areas of biology and medicine, and experience in proofreading and developmental editing. I have a BA (Hons) in Biological Sciences from the University of Oxford and an MSc from the University of Cambridge. My research was on a Drosophila model for antitrypsin deficiency. p.s. I prefer not to volunteer when work is intended for submission to an Elsevier journal. See http://thecostofknowledge.com/
