Scientific Publications Section

The Scientific Publications Section (SciPub) is responsible primarily for scientific and language editing of research proposals written in English by BGU researchers for submission to prestigious international and national funding bodies.

Time permitting, SciPub also provides the following services, for which staff members are charged at the rates set by the University's Finance Division:

• 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
