17th EASE Conference 'Quality Science Publishing'

1-3 June 2023, Istanbul, Turkey

I led the local organising team and was part of the Scientific Programme Committee for the 17th EASE General Assembly and Conference which took place in Istanbul, Turkey from 1-3 June 2023.

We brought together a team of expert speakers from across the globe for our second hybrid conference. Delegates, speakers, hosts and sponsors were able to network in an informal atmosphere, ask questions during the sessions, and meet our speakers in our GatherTown platform. In-person delegates and those joining online enjoyed the same simultaneous programme.

The 17th EASE Conference Packet is available to buy. This brings together all the session recordings, slide decks, speaker bios, sponsors’ information and the Poster Exhibition in one downloadable file.


Editorial School for Journal Editors

8 module course

I initiated the project to create an Editorial School for Journal Editors, to support editors to develop their journals, improve their workflows, policies, systems, visibility and impact.  The course was developed for EASE by Pippa Smart, PSP Consulting and runs over four consecutive weeks, with a lecture and breakout groups to discuss case studies in each module.

The course was piloted with four EASE Regional Chapters, Croatia, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine in 2022. Since then, the course has been run several times, with over 400 delegates participating. The course material has been translated into Turkish, Ukrainian and Portuguese. Delegates have the opportunity to take a short quiz to test their knowledge at the end of the course. The next course runs in October 2024, register your interest.

European Science Editing

Official diamond open access journal of EASE

Our diamond open access peer-reviewed journal publishes original research, review and commentary on all aspects of scientific, scholarly editing and publishing. We aim to provide a source of peer-reviewed information on all aspects of scholarly editing to help editors improve the quality and integrity of scholarly publications. Articles are published in flow and we do not charge APC’s.

The Journal is indexed in Scopus, DOAJ, SJR Scimago amongst others. An application to Web of Science is currently being assessed.

Topics included within our scope include research integrity, peer review, scientometrics, open science, predatory publishing, statistics, writing, translation and ethics. Please visit our website and sign up for e-mail alerts to be notified when new articles are published.

I am a member of the International Editorial Advisory Board.
