Throughout the Eastern Mediterranean region, infrastructural, linguistic, economic and even political factors can limit access to English-language resources for the development and training of researchers, science editors, and peer reviewers. This article describes the AuthorAID in the Eastern Mediterranean (AAEM) project, that aims to increase the dissemination of research results from Eastern Mediterranean countries through editorial mentoring. AAEM advisors help researchers prepare manuscripts to a high standard of linguistic and editorial quality.
