The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) is an international community of individuals and associations from diverse backgrounds, linguistic traditions and professional experience in science communication and editing.

Welcome to EASE

To investigate editors’ experiences of plagiarism, a short scoping survey is being run with the support of EASE as part of our research outreach.

We encourage all our member editors to respond – whether you have experienced plagiarised submissions or not: we need to know the percentage of journals who do not experience any problems as well as experiences of those who have.

There are a maximum of 15 questions, and the survey will only take about 10 minutes to complete.

To access the survey and read more about the purpose of the research, please go to:

The survey will close at the end of August.

We do hope you will participate – and please do forward to any editorial networks that you are linked to – the more responses we receive the better our data will be.

EASE has almost 400 members living in more than 50 countries, not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world.  The Association offers the opportunity to stay abreast of trends in the rapidly-changing environment of scientific publishing.

As an EASE member, you can sharpen your editing, writing and thinking skills, broaden your outlook through encounters with people of different backgrounds and experience, or deepen your understanding of significant issues and specific working tools. Finally, we have fun and enjoy learning from each other while upholding the highest standards.
