April 5, 2018 - Dean’s Office Offers Writing and Editing Resource

IMG_3439ww.jpgSince May 2017, the University of South Alabama College of Medicine Dean’s Office has sponsored a medical and science writing and editing service.

The goal of this free service is to help faculty, fellows, students and residents move their unpublished projects to manuscripts ready for submission.

Dr. Elly Trepman, director of the service, will assist with editing, formatting, reference accuracy, readability and organization of manuscripts before submission.

For more than 35 years, Dr. Trepman has worked as a basic scientist, clinical researcher, academic physician and a journal editor - helping thousands of researchers get their work published.

Any faculty, fellows, students or residents with incomplete academic articles, case reports or research studies are urged to take advantage of this service by emailing manuscript drafts to Dr. Mary Townsley, senior associate dean of the USA College of Medicine, at To develop a full manuscript from a poster, include the poster file, list of detailed methods, reference files and best times to schedule a brief call with Dr. Trepman. Posters must have already been presented at a regional or national meeting, and will be pre-reviewed in the dean’s office for publication suitability. Anyone interested in submitting grant proposals for editing should note the agency funding announcement, formatting requirements and due date in the email.
