Here to Help

After spending my career as a university professor, thirty-one years on the editorial board of an international journal in the natural sciences, and collaborating over decades with international scholars, I joined Scholaris to help academics in the natural sciences publish their research in English. I offer an exceptionally professional, personalized, and supportive service.

Scholaris has helped hundreds of graduate students and faculty at dozens of American and international universities successfully prepare dissertations and theses, articles and books for publication, and Job Market papers. We edit in both the social sciences (Dr. Johnston) and the natural sciences (Dr. Krakowka).
