About the Author

Throughout her editing career, Valerie Materese has been concerned with the quality of scientific reporting and how to improve it locally. In 2008, she published a study that examined the relationship between the quality of biomedical research journals and the editorial leadership expressed by the journals’ instructions to authors. In 2013, she published her first book, an edited volume entitled Supporting Research Writing: Roles and Challenges in Multilingual Settings. That multi-authored book explored the range of language-support services available to researchers who use English as an additional language, from the teaching of academic writing to translation and editing. Since the publication of Supporting Research Writing, she felt an increasing need to raise the profile of authors’ editors, by documenting their work and their contributions to research communication. That strong personal interest motivated her to set aside time from editing to do the qualitative and bibliographic research that underlies the present volume, Editing Research.
