What is an appropriate hourly rate for scientific editorial work?

So - there is a possibility I could do some freelance editorial work for a scientific journal (not copy editing). I have a PhD and relevant experience but have never done this specific type of work before. The journal wants me to submit my hourly rate requirement.
Searching here and elsewhere, I've seen numbers quoted from $25/hour up to $200/hour - most of these seem to be copy-editing of non-scientific magazines or, at best, copy editing a thesis for English grammar and clarity. Any thoughts on what is an appropriate number or range in a scientific context where the PhD and matching technical experience is required?
