SciCom Office signOur Mission

In support of UAMS’s vision of becoming an internationally recognized health sciences center, the mission of SciCom is to

  • Serve the UAMS research community as a scientific writing and editorial resource, with the goal of enhancing investigators’ chances of obtaining extramural grant funding or publishing in peer-reviewed journals
  • Teach UAMS researchers grantsmanship and proposal development through mentoring, workshops, and presentations
  • Seek to continually improve its services by appropriate data gathering and analysis aimed at refining efficacious methods


What We Do and Whom We Serve

SciCom’s editorial services focus on effective, persuasive communication. Our top priority is to help investigators succeed in the highly competitive process of securing extramural grant funding, but we also support manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals.

SciCom serves faculty investigators in all UAMS colleges, as well as organizations that partner with UAMS in research. Our team of seasoned editors offers a mentoring experience in NIH grantsmanship, particularly to those applying for their first grants, as well as to experienced researchers facing an increasingly competitive funding environment. SciCom editors also provide guidance to scientists in developing manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication. In addition to editing services, SciCom offers grant applicants assistance with project management, budget development, and forms completion.
