- I'm a science editor with an interest in open access publishing and publication ethics (journalology). I'm very familiar with critical appraisal, peer review, journal policies, and editorial decision-making. I worked for BioMed Central for five years, then freelanced for a year and a half, first for BMC then for the Public Library of Science. I then joined PLOS ONE as an Associate Editor in 2010, from 2014 to 2016 I was a Senior Editor. In June 2016, I joined Hindawi as Head of Research Integrity. 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 some experience in proofreading and developmental editing. A relevant publication is: England C, Hodgkinson M, Tamber PS: Not being clear about authorship is lying and damages the scientific record. Natl Med J India 2007, Mar-Apr;20(2):56-8 http://www.nmji.in/archives/Volume_20_2_March_April/editorial/Editorial_2.pdf 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/
