Critical review of scientific paper


25 simbi per package - Virtual OK

I am a PhD level marine ecologist and I love reading about science. I will critically review your scientific papers based on the curriculum level you specify (e.g. high school, undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate). I will provide constructive feedback on overall paper or if you simply need advice on a particular section.
