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 Science Editors' Handbook was created to encourage good practice in the editing of publications in the sciences. From its humble beginnings in 1982, the Handbook now comprises 57 chapters arranged in four sections, Editing, Standards and Style, Nomenclature and Terminology and Publishing and Printing.
A total of 37 authors have been responsible for producing its current content. Thanks go particularly to H Maisonneuve, PH Enckell, A Polderman, R Thapa and M Johnson who all played key roles in editing the volume. The Handbook is an invaluable resource to anyone working in the field of editing and it has been successfully used as a reference book for those delivering editing training and seminars.
New edition for 2013
The Handbook is being revised under the direction of Pippa Smart. The new edition will be published in late summer 2013. Details soon.
The Science Editors' Handbook is available to purchase in our WebShop.
