EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators

The European Association of Science Editors has compiled helpful guidelines for writing scientific manuscripts. The guidelines include advice for composing standard sections of the paper, with an additional section on writing an effective Abstract. One appendix discusses problems with “empty” words and phrases (e.g., “important,” “high/low,” “large/small”) that lack inherent meaning and require the reader to supply his or her own interpretation. Another appendix provides recommendations for making the manuscript cohesive. Commonly used wordy phrases are listed with recommended substitutes, and an overview of British vs. American English is provided.
