Editorial School for Journal Editors

EASE training events are an excellent way of meeting other editors and industry professionals, learning from expert speakers and joining the discussion on a range of topics. Many events are held virtually, enabling quick and inexpensive access to a wealth of knowledge.

This four-module online training course has been designed in a collaboration between our Training Committee and our Regional Chapters. It was piloted with our Regional Chapters in Croatia, Romania and Turkey in Spring 2022, and is now being rolled out to the wider membership. The Regional Chapters will help with local language support and moderation from their leadership to ensure the greatest accessibility and effectiveness of the training.

The course is held over four weeks, with one module each week, and is aimed at helping our member editors make their journals more visible, impactful, and full of engaging material.

The four modules will include these topics:

  • improve the quality of editorial processes;
  • manage ethical issues effectively;
  • enhance the efficiency of peer review and production processes;
  • support more successful promotional activities;
  • comply with international standards, and
  • increase the chances of successful indexing applications.

The training will be led by Pippa Smart, Past-President of EASE, founder of PSP Consulting, and Editor-in-Chief of Learned Publishing.

This course is particularly suitable for those in the early stages of their careers as an editor but will benefit members of all experiences, involved in managing or planning journals.
