TESTIMONIALS

Working with Dr. Ricardo Stanton-Salazar for over a year was a truly amazing experience. Having read much of his scholarly work during my own graduate training, I knew he would understand the intellectual and scholarly goals I had with my manuscripts. However, as my developmental editor for a book project and journal manuscript, he exceeded any expectations. He critically and gently offered methodological and meticulous chapter by chapter feedback of my book manuscript and assisted me with interpreting reviewer feedback. I also consulted with him about research design for an additional research proposal. He understood the content of my research and demonstrated an extensive range of expertise; thus, he was able to make recommendations that improved my argumentation and review of theoretical approaches. In addition to the written feedback, he also provided me Zoom sessions to discuss his feedback and to answer my questions as my writing and thinking evolved. I feel so grateful to have had his mentorship and guidance through these early stages of my career. I continue to seek his assistance. I highly recommend Dr. Stanton-Salazar if you need intensive, thoughtful, and critical feedback and guidance.

Working with Ricardo was a delight. He reminded me very much of my work with my dissertation advisor and mentor, who I have known for over ten years. Ricardo’s editorial suggestions were extremely helpful and inspired me to rethink my work. In other words, working with him made me a better writer. The first article he edited just got published in the top journal in my field. The second article he helped me with will be sent out very soon. I give him the highest recommendation possible.

Dr. Ricardo Stanton-Salazar provided insightful, efficient, well-defined, and the utmost professional editing service for a recent special issue of an academic journal that I served as guest co-editor. I highly recommend Ricardo’s attention to detail, his ability to work well with the authors, and his overall superior command of scholarly writing—especially with respect to his expertise of social science research and with recent APA style formatting. While there are many academic editors out there to choose from, few are highly-cited authors, and as publishing-savvy and methodologically sophisticated as Ricardo. I will certainly seek Ricardo’s astute editorial skills time and time again!

Ricardo was immensely helpful in getting my article on College Student Burnout in pristine, academic condition. His range of expertise is wide, from being able to offer copy editing to content/developmental editing. Navigating the peer-review process can be tricky, so having someone like Ricardo support your work is encouraging. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs any kind of help getting a project off the ground.

Dr. Stanton-Salazar provided me a service that went above and beyond. As a retired university professor, he understands the ins and outs of academia. I appreciated his critical feedback on my book chapter and his help with my postdoctoral applications. As a first-generation college graduate and now as a doctoral candidate, I can’t say enough about how grateful I am for his mentorship during one of the most difficult phases of the PhD program: the dissertation writing stage. Dr. Stanton-Salazar helped me hone my academic voice and writing and to more sharply articulate my scholarly contribution to my area of study. His service is exceptional!
