Description of Services

The section of Scientific Publications was established to provide Texas Heart Institute staff with professional scientific editorial services for the following types of projects:

  • Manuscripts
  • Journal articles, including resubmission articles

The editors in Scientific Publications will work with you (click here)—the author—and the journal or book publisher to expedite the publication process. Our staff can edit for grammar and/or make substantive changes, whichever you prefer. Our goal is to promote accuracy and clarity of information in manuscripts that originate from the Institute. We can assist authors in all aspects of publication, including interaction with journals and publishers, necessary correspondence, galley proofreading, project management, and instruction on how to prepare a scientific manuscript.
