The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) is an internationally oriented community of individuals from diverse backgrounds, linguistic traditions and professional experience who share an interest in science communication and editing.
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 to their manuscripts before submission. Adherence should mean that the manuscript has a greater chance of acceptance. Moreover, the editorial process will tend to be faster, so authors, translators, reviewers and editors will save time.
Before submission, follow EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators, freely available in many languages at www.ease.org.uk/publications/author-guidelines. Adherence should increase the chances of acceptance of submitted manuscripts.
The correct format for citing the Guidelines is:
[EASE] European Association of Science Editors. 2012. EASE guidelines for authors and translators of scientific articles to be published in English. Available from www.ease.org.uk/publications/author-guidelines.
Only the English version has been fully approved by the EASE Council. Translations into languages other than English are provided as a service to our readership and have not been validated by EASE or any other organisation. EASE therefore accepts no legal responsibility for consequences of use of the translations.
Please note that in the translated files only the links in the reference list are active. Blue in-text references denote those that are available online.
We invite volunteers to translate the Guidelines into other languages. All suggestions should be sent to Sylwia Ufnalska.
More resources for authors are available via the EASE Toolkit for Authors.
