EASE School for Manuscript Editors and Academic Authors, Week 2

Wednesday, 8 March 2023

This four-session online training course has been designed to help researchers, academics, technical writers, and copy editors who edit technical documents – especially research papers – to make them more acceptable to journal editors and publishers, less likely to be desk-rejected, and once accepted, be published ahead of other manuscripts. The 12-hour course is held once a week spread over four weeks, with two topics covered each week over 3 hours:

Week 2

  • Organising numerical data into reader-friendly tables
  • Preparing impactful charts, graphs and other illustrations

The training was led by Yateendra Joshi, who chairs the EASE Training Committee, and two guest speakers. This course is particularly suitable for early-career researchers and manuscript editors but can benefit all those involved in writing and editing scientific documents irrespective of the level of experience and expertise.
