Science Editing (Sci Ed) is the official journal of the Korean Council of Science Editors (https://kcse.org) and the Council of Asian Science Editors (https://asianeditor.org). It aims to improve human health and culture by promoting the quality of editing and publishing of scientific, technical, and medical journals. Its expected readers are editors, publishers, reviewers, and authors of journals around the world, although it has a particular focus on journals in Asia. Since scholarly journals in Asia are mostly published by academic societies, universities, or non-profit organizations, Sci Ed seeks to play a role in journal development. The number of publications from Asia is increasing rapidly and has surpassed that of other continents; meanwhile, the number of international journals and highly recognized journals has yet to advance commensurately. It is the task of Asian editors to dedicate themselves to journal quality and broaden their journals’ visibility and accessibility. Therefore, the scope of Sci Ed includes the following in the field of science, technology, and medicine.
