EASE Statement of endorsement of the Leiden Declaration on Transparent Journal Policies

EASE has officially endorsed a new Declaration on editorial transparency

This Declaration was discussed at a workshop held in Leiden, July 2018, overseen by Radboud University Institute for Science in Society. Representatives from publishers, (managing) editors, researchers and librarians participated, including two members of EASE Council.

One of the main conclusions of the workshop was the acknowledged need for journals to be more transparent about their editorial policies.

This workshop output resulted in a Declaration on Transparent Journal Policies, drafted and agreed by all workshop participants.

The full statement of EASE endorsement has been posted to our website here.
