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.
13th EASE General Assembly and Conference, Strasbourg, June 2016
Everyone who attended the very successful 12th General Assembly that has just ended in Split, Croatia, will be happy to know that planning for the 13th EASE Conference has already begun.
“Scientific integrity: editors on the front line” will be the main theme along with many other hot topics, according to Herve Maisonneuve, past-president of EASE and local French organizer.
It appears that misconduct in science is frequent, and that fraud is increasing. As Institutions have few or no policies to prevent or detect fraud, editors are often the first ones to be alerted. They receive information from very different sources. They have then to liaise with Institutions in order to make decisions (corrections or retractions), and it’s a challenge.
You are welcome to send proposals to the organizing committee: Hervé Maisonneuve, Liz Wager, Evelyne Decullier, Alison Clayson and Chris Sterken.
The conference will take place at the School of Medicine in central Strasbourg. Besides the presentations, the posters, and the networking, there are wonderful places to visit and memorable ... food and wine.
