Standard Response Letters

The Head Bookworm started her medical editing career at Med Communications, where she edited hundreds of standard response documents (SRs) for one client over an 8-year stretch. Since then, she has edited SRs for 7 other pharmaceutical clients.

SRs were in Word and stored in document management systems (including proprietary systems, SalesForce, and Veeva Vault).

Editing goals:

  • Ensured that documents followed project style guides and the AMA Manual of Style.
  • Corrected grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.
  • Corrected formatting and ensured consistency among documents.
  • Collaborated with pharmacists to improve writing and presentation of ideas.
