Apart from professional proofreading and copy-editing of your scientific documents, we also provide science consulting services which include (but are not limited to):

Scientific writing

scientific writing

We can help you create new content, e.g.,

  • we help you formulate the reply to reviewers
  • we can condense and synthesise your internal reports into a publishable manuscript
  • we can create artwork (figures, schematics, animated videos) or Word-formatted tables from your data
  • we can create the poster and abstract for your next conference
  • for some subject area/language combinations we may be able to offer translation services (please ask)
If you do not see your desired service listed here, simply use our form to request a quote and describe the type of service you require.

Statistical analyses & Numerical modelling

statistical analysis and modelling modelling
We can perform statistical analyses to help you extract meaningful results from complex datasets (e.g., univariate and multivariate analyses to create predictive models for patient outcomes) and construct mathematical models to help you test hypotheses or find the theoretical underpinnings of your observations. Furthermore, we master a range of programming languages (Matlab, Fortran, C++, Python, Perl, R, Statistica, SPSS) and have sufficient hardware to carry out small to medium-sized modelling projects. Recent projects include:
  • Assist with the study design and statistical (uni- and multivariate) analysis of a retrospective and observational study on tumour patients.
  • Statistical analysis of socio-demographic characteristics of COVID-19 patients
  • Monte Carlo simulations and Random Walks in Biology
  • Lagrangian and Eulerian modelling of phytoplankton cells
  • Optical ray tracing through free falling rain drops
  • Parasite infectivity modelling
  • Turbulence modelling by Kinematic Simulation
  • identification of rapidly-evolving genes involved in fungal pathogenicity, host specialization and potentially speciation
  • the role of transposable elements and repeats on mitochondrial genome rearrangements
  • development of Phylo-MCOA: a method based on multiple co-inertia analysis for the identification of outlier genes and species in phylogenomic studies
  • Many more ...

Proposal writing

Our scientists have extensive experience with the writing and evaluation of research grant proposals, both at a national and international level. We can assist you in the application process for research funding from a range of different funding agencies (e.g., EU - Marie Curie, NERC, DFG, NSF, etc.).
We will ensure that your proposal is written in good English and our experience can help you avoid obvious mistakes to increase your chances of getting your project funded.

Publication quality figures and animated videos

figures and videos
We master a range of software packages and can assist you in the production of eye-catching, publication-quality figures to give your manuscript the additional punch and increase its impact and visibility. We also create 2D/3D animations and explainer videos including voice-overs.

We work with Matlab, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Premier, Excel, and SigmaPlot and can provide you with high resolution figures and videos in all common graphics (jpeg, tiff, eps, png, etc.) and video formats (mp4, mkv, avi, wmv, etc.).

Science communication & outreach

science communication
Every scientific project requires a modern approach to science communication to increase visibility within the community and raise awareness in the general public through outreach activities. We can provide assistance with communication & outreach activities by setting up and maintaining a project web page, creating and maintaining social media pages, maintaining blogs, writing reports and press releases, etc.

Project management

management
We can take over the entire management of your research project, relieving you of the tedious administrative tasks such as report writing, coordinating the collaboration between different work packages, reminding project participants of important deadlines, organising meetings and workshops, maintaining the project website, etc.
 

Prices

At XpertScientific, we charge our clients for reimbursable expenses and an hourly or project-negotiable rate for our consulting services. Because the services we provide are rather diverse, and project duration may vary from a few days to several months, we cannot be more specific. So please feel free to contact us with a short outline of the services you require and we will be happy to provide you with a concrete price estimate that is tailored to your specific needs.
