Kyoto, Japan, 1995. Biologist Dr. Patrick Hughes, editing another research paper on behalf of his colleagues who struggled with English, saw a problem. If your research isn't published because it cannot be clearly understood, then it's as if it never took place. Having worked in Europe and Asia, Patrick knew the problem was widespread.
Medical and life science research makes essential contributions to our society and world at large, for the benefit of our health, environment and future. It is critical that this research can be read and understood clearly, so that no finding is left behind because of the language barrier. Bioedit was founded in 2001 with the goal of using those skills we can offer, as both scientists who can understand this work and skilled editors who can articulate it, to help authors publish their results in the best English language journals and further the reach of their discoveries worldwide.
