Editorial Services for Ag Professionals

Put Your Best Words Forward

The Council for Agricultural Science and Technology would like to help you with your publications, websites, books, newsletters, and other printed forms of communication. Grammatical errors, confusing punctuation, and choppy syntax give your readers the wrong impressions--and in some cases, they can be "deal breakers." Any document you release must look its best in order to promote your organization and attest to its credibility. CAST editors will add that layer of polish that your piece deserves.
The editing staff at CAST has many years of experience, and they can put that expertise to work for you. Services include basic copyediting, website copyediting, proofreading, layout, indexing, and more.
Contact: Carol Gostele, Managing Scientific Editor, cgostele@cast-science.org, 515-292-2125 ext. 226
