Janice worked on a short but important project for me. The work was awesome!!! The piece was very thoughtful, cleverly composed and well written.
from Dr. Jennifer Van Velkinburgh, President and Chief Writer and Editor at Filipodia.
Janice worked for two of my companies, AmEditor and Filipodia, first in the capacity of a freelance editor of science and medicine manuscripts for submission to peer-reviewed journals and then as a blog post writer. Janice’s work was always top quality, showcasing her skills and substantive insights on today’s landscape of science communication. In her blog posts for Filipodia, Janice was able to engage the reader through stories taken from her extensive personal travels and her multi-national professional life. She tackled issues that nearly all editors and practicing scientists face in their daily work, giving thoughtful advice on current challenges in both science communication and the research efforts that unpin it. For example, one of my favorite posts written by Janice reminds the reader to not forget our altruistic motivations for discovery when researching under the pressures for practical outcomes, such as building our publication lists on PubMed and getting awarded grants to support ourselves and our labs. Janice’s perspectives on the collaborative nature of the global research community should be a model for all scientists. Her professional attitude and diligent work practices make her one of the most enjoyable and easy people to work with.

Dr. Nigro recently proofed our manuscript aimed for submission to a top ranked journal. The purpose of the commission was not to edit the grammar and syntax, but to make the scientific and medical significance more accessible to a lay audience. Dr. Nigro de-mystified our manuscript and turned it around within 72 hours. She has the undisputed advantage of being a scientist of exceptional calibre, with publications in top journals. She has therefore an eye for novelty and pitching for the critical editor.
