The Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, a peer-reviewed medical science journal, is searching for a freelance copy editor to edit manuscripts in MS Word, applying AMA and in-house styles. The manuscripts would include conference abstracts, clinical guidelines, research reports and case reports in the field of orthopaedic and sports physical therapy.
Because the quantity of work varies, depending on the number of manuscripts accepted and slated for publication, the applicant would have to be available on an on-call basis and to work flexible hours.
Applicants from the metro DC area preferred, to enable working in the Journal’s Alexandria office if necessary.
Requirements include advanced proficiency in MS Word and EndNote (referencing software), experience with copy editing for STM (scientific, technical and medical) publications, and familiarity with academic research manuscripts or grants.
