The European Association of Science Editors

EASE currently has just under 500 members living in more than 50 countries, not only in Europe but all over the world.  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.

The EASE Journal, European Science Editing was relaunched in February 2020 as a fully open access journal on the ARPHA platform. The journal publishes articles covering all aspects of scientific publishing to help editors improve the quality and integrity of scholarly publications. Read more…

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.
