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!
