The Writing Center @ UNMC, a satellite location of the UNO Writing Center, offers faculty and students help with writing projects, free of charge. Staff can offer instruction in a variety of areas, including organization, clarity, grammar, writing style, formatting, documentation and overcoming writer's block.
The center is located on the sixth floor of Wittson Hall in the McGoogan Health Sciences Library and is open 3 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Schedule an appointment today.
Note: Consultants will not serve as editors or evaluate scientific content, instead they'll work with writers to identify errors and learn how to avoid them. Faculty members seeking extensive grant or manuscript editing should contact the Research Editorial Office, which provides those services for a fee.
The Research Editorial Office provides UNMC faculty members with proposal development and grant and manuscript editing support. Services include:
- Copy editing
- Formatting to agency guidelines
- Analysis of the content and flow of the proposal or manuscript
Contact the Research Editorial Office for more information.
