The European Association of Science Editors

EASE currently has over 500 members living in more than 50 countries worldwide. The Association offers the opportunity to stay abreast of trends in the rapidly-changing environment of scientific publishing.

As an EASE member, you can sharpen your editing, writing and thinking skills, broaden your outlook through encounters with people of different backgrounds and experience, and deepen your understanding of significant issues and specific working tools.

Finally, we have fun and enjoy learning from each other while upholding the highest standards.

EASE has developed a number of resources to help editors, including the popular EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles and Quick Check table, the SAGER Guidelines, and toolkits for authors, editors and peer reviewers. All provide simple, clear advice aimed at making international scientific communication more efficient and many are available in a number of other languages.

Our Science Editors’ Handbook covers everything from on-screen editing to office management, peer review, and dealing with the media. It is available in softback and digital editions.
