Editing, reviewing & co-writing
articles, reports and web pages

Impact requires articles, reports and webpages to be engaging, accurate and functional for the potential user, so that your research can be understood and used wisely.

Articles, reports and web pages need to offer different levels of information, from brief and engaging introductions, to vital explanations of core concepts, to the detailed resources that potential users will need.

We bring extensive experience in reviewing, editing and co-writing research reports, articles, policy briefings, training resources, surveys and other professional documents.  With the research team, we ensure that documents are accurate, focussed and functional for the intended reader.

We can also carry out a qualitative analysis of responses from potential users and stakeholders in surveys, interviews or expert trials.

For each project, our work is about clarifying and explaining exactly what the research offers for potential users and stakeholders, and keeping these claims grounded in evidence.

If would like help in reporting your research, and would like the reports to be clear, engaging and rigorously informative, then contact us.



(Note.  We do not offer a separate ‘proof-reading’ service.   In our experience, any editing to increase the clarity of a document inevitably generates detailed questions about the research and about its significance for the intended readers.  We therefore edit documents only as part of the work of disseminating research.)
