Fellowships & Positions - Fellows Editorial Board

The NIH Fellows Editorial Board offers fellows a free, confidential scientific document-editing service and gives fellows who join the Board editorial training and experience.

  • Editing Service: This is a confidential, free service for any NIH or FDA fellow. An all-volunteer Editorial Board of fellows and other professionals edit fellows’ scientific documents—typically manuscripts and grant applications—for grammar, form, and clarity. The editors also review essential elements pertinent to the document, such as figures and figure legends, but do not consider scientific merit. Authors receive written feedback within at least 10 business days and may request meetings with editors.
