WRITING & CONSULTING SERVICES
Professional Science and Medical Writing
Well-conducted research makes the greatest impact when the results are communicated clearly, effectively and promptly. But the demanding and conflicting schedules of the researchers and clinicians involved can leave little time for the labor-intensive writing process. Biolexica’s professional science and medical writing services help streamline this process and ensure your results are presented in an interesting but appropriately objective manner.
Scientific and clinical research manuscripts
- Basic research
- Preclinical research
- Medical device feasibility, pivotal, and post-market studies
- Pharmaceutical phase I, II, III, and IV clinical studies
- Clinical experience papers (case reports and case series)
- Clinical consensus, narrative, and systematic literature reviews
We work collaboratively with all authors and contributors to gather and assemble background information and references, methods, results, interpretation, key conclusions, and study limitations. Under the direction of the authors, we perform literature research and reference collection, develop a coherent outline and initial draft, and coordinate the critical-review and revision process. We provide expert assistance with table construction and figure preparation, securing copyright permissions, bibliography/citation management and journal-specific formatting, and, if needed, will provide guidance and assistance with online submission management systems. We can also advise regarding authorship, contributorship and ethical disclosure considerations, and can help clients adhere to publication, ethics, and style guidelines including CONSORT, ISMPP/GPP, ICMJE, COPE, PRISMA, AMA, CSE, and individual journal submission guidelines.
Medical Illustration and Animation
We hand-select skilled design partners to help our clients create publication-quality, scientifically accurate graphics and artwork, including visually stunning color or black-and-white illustrations, photo composites, graphs, charts, and even 3-D animated videos.
Poster and slide presentations
Oral/visual presentation of research is a vastly different medium than journal publication. We will help you develop high-impact presentations that convey the results and meaning of your research, whether you’re presenting at a conference symposium, investor conference, or other meeting.
