At American Journal Experts (AJE), we help researchers successfully communicate their work through trusted author-oriented solutions to overcome the barriers to the manuscript preparation process. We are actively recruiting independent contractors with field-specific expertise to edit scholarly manuscripts originally written by non-native English speakers so that language is not a barrier to research communication.

AJE provides a platform that allows qualified editing providers to support researchers from across the world. AJE's contract editors can work remotely from anywhere in the US with a stable internet connection. They can select manuscripts based on their areas of expertise, and they are not obligated to accept jobs that are available on our platform. Editing providers are compensated based on manuscript length.

We often need editors with backgrounds in the following fields:

  • Business & Economics
  • Earth & Environmental Sciences
  • Engineering
  • Math & Computer Science
  • Clinical Medicine
  • Physics


To qualify as an independent contract editor, applicants must:

  • Have native English proficiency
  • Possess a Master’s degree/PhD or professional degree in a relevant field
  • Have significant experience either working in or editing papers in a related field
  • Have a documented current or former affiliation with an accredited, not-for-profit, college or university with selective admission policies and classes conducted primarily in English. An affiliation is defined as a degree, current enrollment, postdoctoral training, employment, or faculty appointment
  • The ideal applicant for this position would have had exposure to these fields and their literature. The candidates who have been most successful in the contract editor role are autonomous, have editing experience and/or strong technical writing skills, and seek to make a positive impact on their field of expertise.
