KIO provides English editing support services for the students and staff on Kashiwa Campus. Based on the evaluation results of the questionnaire by the user of this service, we will help you select an editing company in accordance to your requirements. Since we can ask some editing companies for the estimates, you can compare them.
KIO provides opportunities to help TOEIC test takers to take the test more easily and cost effectively. For AY2019, KIO has arranged for the members of Kashiwa Campus to easily sign-up for and take the test in September and March on campus.
Technical and scientific writing can often seem rather "cut and dry": rather routine in nature since most, if not all, of such writing follows a specific pattern and hence, may seem uninteresting to many. The purpose of such writing is, however, to make the readers understand the true nature of a problem, your suggested solution (hypothesis) and its underlying rationale, your experimental method and why you chose that particular one, your results, and much, much more.
Since scientific research worldwide published in English almost surely outweighs that published in any other language, continually honing your technical writing skills in English is highly recommended. Kashiwa International Office (KIO) offers an English Consultation Service that helps writers improve the technical writing skills, reviews journal article submissions in addition to other requests. Appointments can be made through the KIO website.
