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.


The EASE Science Editors’ Handbook (now in its second edition) is an invaluable resource for anyone working in the field of editing either in print, or digitally.  It covers a wide range of subjects, including all aspects of copy editing and running a journal. It provides examples of good practice, plus hints and tips that can help to solve problems and support good decisions.

The EASE Journal, European Science Editing, publishes articles of various types, covering all aspects of scientific publishing.  With contributors from across Europe and some from further afield, the Journal has a truly international flavour.  An informative and entertaining read, it helps editors of all kinds keep up to date with all the major relevant issues. The Journal now has a new website, where you can still find all of the old content and find out more about new developments.

EASE curates three toolkits:

  • the EASE toolkit for authors – a wealth of vital information for new and experienced authors of scientific articles
  • the EASE toolkit for journal editors – a handy resource containing best practice tips, guidelines, and advice on the art of heading up a scientific journal
  • the EASE toolkit for peer reviewers – a range of resources, divided over four categories, covering general tips, training, guidelines, tools and checklists for new peer reviewers, and established journal editors

The EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles to be Published in English provide simple, clear advice aimed at making international scientific communication more efficient. We encourage authors and translators to observe these guidelines and apply the relevant suggestions.
