Randal edited a research article that I was planning on submitting to a very competitive peer-review journal. I had already thoroughly revised and edited the article over the course of several months. Randal gave the paper and appendix (about 60 pages) a very close read and offered numerous suggestions for rephrasing that substantially streamlined the writing and clarified the arguments. The improvement was striking. I plan to have Randal read all of my future research papers prior to journal submission.
