Kelsey, AJE Editor
“I hope that my work as an Academic Formatting Specialist helped our researchers overcome some of the sometimes seemingly silly roadblocks to publishing (citation format, overall manuscript layout requirements, confusing guidelines, etc.) As an Academic Editor, I hope that my edits have brought clarity to the work of our authors, as they’ve done the really difficult work of researching and writing, and we’re here to help make sure that their hard-won knowledge is shared.”
