Meet your trainer, editor and coach

Hi! I'm Anna, PhD. 

You want to climb that promotion ladder, secure your tenure track position.

BUT you feel stressed out about those grant proposals you have to write? You are not sure how to get your research published in a high-impact journal? 

I'm here to help.

I know both worlds: writing AND science. I am a journalist published in “Scientific American” and other major popular science magazines. Before turning to writing I worked as a scientist and obtained a PhD in Chemistry.

Picture this: Scientific writing feels easy because you learned frameworks that work over and over again. You understand how to write productively and free up time in your busy schedule. Or take a shortcut and have me edit or review your work.

sounds great, right?

In the last few years I have helped scientists to get published in the journals from “Nature Electronics”, “Physical Review Letters”, “Chemical Science”, “ACS Nano”, “Scientific Reports” and others. 

The core of my training, coaching and editorial support is my "Story Framework". This method gives your grant proposal and research paper structure, clarity and flow. 

I’m passionate about making academia a better place to work, and I want to help others to succeed in their scientific career. When I'm not at my desk, you'll likely find me climbing a hill with my dog Zuza or sipping an oat milk flat white in a café in beautiful Prague. In the last seven years I've lived in three different countries, and I'm currently in the Czech Republic.

What others have said about my services

»Anna’s thorough edits including partial rewrites and restructuring of sentences and paragraphs greatly improved our paper. We are delighted that it got accepted in a journal with substantial impact factor. I highly recommend Anna’s editing services even to experienced scientific authors.«
— Prof. Petr Nachtigall, Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic
»With her strategy session, Anna helped me in a clear and straightforward way to prepare manuscript drafts in a much more organized way. Through asking key questions, she has helped me to not only improve existing manuscripts, but also start writing papers in a much more planned manner in the future.«
— Scientist, Institute of Chemistry, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany
 
»Anna’s editing service helps you to improve the quality of your writing. It is like the first round of review, where you get clear feedback on your manuscript. I am not a native speaker, and therefore, it is difficult to always use clear explanations and the correct turns of phrase. We are trying to do excellent research and improper language use might degrade our work. Anna’s edits led to high improvement of the language used in our articles and enhanced the entire impression of our work. I particularly liked that Anna pointed out when something in our papers was unclear or misleading. Another benefit of Anna’s service was that once I was submitting the articles, I was confident they were correct language-wise.«
— Hana Macíckova Cahová, Head of Junior Research Group, Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic
»Anna not only fixed grammatical errors in our manuscript, but also significantly improved its structure. She made our paper accessible to a broader audience by identifying parts not clear to someone outside our field.«
— Prof. Evžen Bouřa, Research Group Leader & Dr Martin Klíma, PhD researcher, The Bouřa Lab, Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic
 
»Really useful workshop!«
— Becky Upton, PhD student, University of Liverpool, UK

Writing portfolio

I write popular science articles about topics in various disciplines ranging from psychology to chemistry. My articles have been published both in print and online, such as in “Scientific American”, “Spektrum der Wissenschaft” and “Gehirn & Geist”.
