“I recently worked with Dr. Johnston to write a grant, and was amazed at how quickly he grasped the fundamental concepts of the proposal… His insights and editing without a doubt made the difference between success and failure”

Dr. Brent Sohngen, Professor of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics at The Ohio State Unviersity

“The time and energy invested in academic research and analysis is often enormous, and the final write-up is often the most critical and challenging stage. Through deep understanding of how complex topics must be communicated in a clear and concise manner, Scholaris Academic Editing proved extremely valuable in the completion of our recent book manuscript.”
