Authors who don't use English as a first language face challenges beyond writing in English. We asked some of our long-time experts to share their thoughts on the added challenges of being an ESL/EFL author.
Jennifer Smith, PhD, botanist and biochemist, has been working with Edanz since 2007. An extremely positive presence both on the page and in conversation, Dr Smith advises authors at all stages in their careers to not be discouraged by rejection.
Richard Haase, PhD, a former in-house physics editor in our Beijing office now edits from New Zealand. Dr Haase, a physicist, cultivator of roses, and expert on a variety of quandaries from the mathematical to the atomic, has worked for Edanz since 2008.
Libby Cone, MD, MA, has been working with Edanz since 2013. In that time she has edited nearly 400 manuscripts for Edanz client authors. A radiology and imaging expert, Dr. Cone is not only an experienced scientific editor, but also the author of four works of historical fiction.
