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. They also draw attention to ethical issues such as authorship criteria, plagiarism, conflict of interests and more. This concise and readable set of editorial guidelines was first published by EASE in 2010 and updated annually until 2018.
In the latest edition of the Guidelines we have made 3 important improvements:
- an added sentence encouraging all authors to register for an ORCID iD (on page e2),
- an added sentence stressing the need to formulate the tested hypothesis in the introduction, if possible (on page e3),
- the outdated term "self-plagiarism" replaced by "content recycling", with its short definition (on page e4).
