Science Editing (Sci Ed) is the official journal of the Korean Council of Science Editors http://www.kcse.org/ and Council of Asian Science Editors http://asianeditor.org/. It aims to improve the culture and health of human being by promoting the quality of editing and publishing scientific, technical, and medical journals. Expected readers are editors, publishers, reviewers, and authors of the journals around the world; however, specially focused to those in Asia.
