Experience I've been editing for around 15 years, the last six of which I've been freelancing. I worked in-house for a research organisation (and then also contracted back to them as a freelancer) that studied all aspects of desert and remote Australia, so the topic areas mentioned above were particular to this research. I've also separately edited research reports about the Great Barrier Reef, about climate change, about agricultural development in Africa, about Dutch involvement in agricultural innovation and various other NGO projects in developing nations.
