Building a better future for science communications
We started Dmed in 1995 with one key insight - that science communication works best when author and editor collaborate. We’ve grown this into a range of services that cover every aspect of the science communications process. Today, scientists at every career level - from undergraduate to department head - use Dmed to maximize their research impact, showcase their scientific competence, and ultimately, enrich their careers.
The full value of your research
We actively enable close and frequent interaction between editor and author, using iteration through multiple versions. The results are transformative. Authors discover new insights in their findings, optimize their paper’s structure and expression, and strengthen their scientific impact. It’s the best way to bring out the full value of their research.
We’ve used this approach to help authors at nearly every major Japanese hospital, university and research facility. We’re preferred editing provider for a Top 3 Japanese pharmaceutical company. We’ve trained more than 6,000 scientists in science writing, and provide post-acceptance editing for a growing number of Japanese journals.
Along the way we’ve helped Nobel laureates, organized an international conference and established a thriving international society.
Dmed supports scientists like you in every aspect of science communication.
Who we are
We’re founded by scientists and run by scientists, working for scientists like you.

Completely independent. No COI.
Most major editing providers have business tie-ins with science publishers. Dmed is unaffilialted with major publishing houses, so we support our authors in a completely COI-free way. Some of our authors have found that our independence is really important.
How we work
Dmed’s collaborative and iterative approach is unique in science authoring services.
An Analytical approach
We’re built around an analytical approach which combines collaboration between author and editor and iteration through multiple versions. It's like having an extra author and a presubmission review all rolled into one. Analytical editing is the best way to maximize the value of your research.
Close and frequent interaction
Other companies handle collaboration between author and editor as a cost to be minimized. For us, collaboration is the core of our everything we do. It’s a key part of our analytical approach that we encourage with every paper.
Highest quality editing can’t be rushed. Our turn-around times reflect a rational approach to quality editorial work. For urgent papers, we offer an Express which cuts no corners.
Ethics and security
We work in consistent with COPE etc. Dmed maintain highest standards of the security and privacy of data that is entrusted to us.
Every author has specific needs. We are maximally flexible in meeting your specific requirements before and after submission through to acceptance and publication. We’re expert at troubleshooting with journals and have helped thousands of authors reach final acceptance.
The true value of your research
Your paper is the culmination of hundreds or thousands of hours of effort. For most authors, simple one-pass editing will not bring out the full value of this effort. Our goal is to maximize your research impact, showcase your scientific competence, and power your career.
Internationalization and collaboration is in our blood
Dmed has made pioneering contributions to the science communications field, placing us at the forefront of change.
At the dawn of the Internet era, we organized the first international conference on telemedicine held in Japan, with sponsorship by the WHO and major Japanese academic societies.
Establishing an international society
Dmed spearheaded the founding of the International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth in 1997. The ISfTeH continues to thrive, and now represents more than 100 countries.
Supporting Nobel laureates
We’re proud to have supported recipients of major international science awards, including the Lasker Award and the Shaw Prize. We’ve even had a hand in supporting a Nobel laureate.
