Editage launches medical writing services
Editage, the preferred scientific communications partner for several reputed academic institutions and business organizations, has further expanded its offerings by launching a medical writing service. This service caters to the communication needs of pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations (CROs), academic departments, and individuals. It includes everything from clinical manuscripts, clinical study reports, and safety reports, to scientific manuscripts, grant applications, scientific poster presentations, and pharma marketing material.
The seed for such a service was sown in 2005, when Editage became a member of the American Medical Writers Association—a globally reputed organization that offers "educational programs, various publications, and unparalleled opportunities" for members to extend their professional expertise. In the ensuing months, Editage acquired a much better understanding of the requirements of the medical communication industry and considerably benefited from the training received through AMWA.
Shedding light on the market for such a service, Elvira D’souza, Manager - Medical Writing Services, remarks, "Drug companies and CROs are increasingly outsourcing non-core activities to where they can be done more efficiently and at lower costs. Outsourcing in the clinical trials industry is growing at almost 31%. Also, researchers need well–written documents that will stand the scrutiny of competitive peer-review processes." In light of these market needs and the requisite in–house talent at the disposal of Editage, medical writing is a natural extension of its service portfolio. In the immediate future, Editage aims to establish itself as a key player in the medical writing industry.
Editage is a specialist provider of academic editing and educational services to researchers worldwide. It has serviced over 10,000 clients across 515 subject areas. With offices in Japan, USA and India, Editage brings together best–in–class talent through a growing base of 70 in-house and 67 contractual editors, making it the largest academic editing team in the world.
