Place a Job Ad

Post your position to our members by purchasing a job ad on the Member Resources section of our website. 

Search the BELS Directory

A list of every board-certified editor with the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS).

Search the Freelance Directory

Refine your search to include those members who are available for freelance work and find the BELS-certified editors you need.

Search Tips:

  • You can refine your search by selecting multiple attributes including expertise, services provided, and media.
  • In order to see all freelance editors select "Search" from the bottom of the form without selecting any other criteria.
  • Your search will reveal ONLY information BELS members have chosen to make visible to the public. Only members who have logged in will be able to see full profile information.


In this directory are editors certified by the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS) who make their services available on a freelance basis. The directory's purpose is to help establish contact between those who need and those who offer such services; it does not imply endorsement by BELS of any person included. Professional qualifications and compensation must be discussed directly with the individuals whom you contact.

Please contact us if you experience problems or have questions.

Thank you for your interest in BELS-certified editors.
