• Editing research proposals other than those detailed above.

• Editing academic papers written in English.

 

The Section gives priority to:

• Proposals considered by the University to be "institutional" (e.g., European Union, ISF, DIP).

• Proposals from young researchers (first three years of employment at BGU).

• Proposals that have been awarded high marks by prestigious funding bodies but have been returned for revision before resubmission
