Founder's note

Scientific Writers Founder and CEO Allison Kirsop, medical and technical writer.

Dr Allison Kirsop

FOUNDER & CEO

Allison gained a Ph.D. in bio-inorganic chemistry in 2008 from the University of Edinburgh, UK. As a research chemist, she designed antiviral drugs against HIV and developed novel drug delivery systems for diabetes and bone cancer as a postdoc in the US.  

She worked as the editorial manager of a peer-review journal for over 10 years before pursuing a career as a medical/technical writer.

Currently, Allison holds an appointed position on the Executive Committee of the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA).

“When bringing innovations to market or submitting a journal article for peer review, the timely publication of results can have a significant impact on future grant applications and funding. Clients often ask our advice about which journal to target and why it’s the right one for their study.”

This is what we do at Scientific Writers – streamline the publication process for clients.

Hiring external writing support usually means you get assistance with the writing of a draft paper only to the author approval stage. Clients are then responsible for the journal submission and review process, which can take several weeks or even months in some cases.

Our clients can be supported all the way, from the initial preparation of a detailed outline, through journal submission and peer review, right until the editor’s decision is made.
