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.
The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) is a non-profit membership organisation for people interested in science communication and editing. Founded in 1982, in France, EASE now has an international membership from diverse backgrounds and professional experience.
EASE has about 550 members who live in more than 50 countries, not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world. Members work in many disciplines and trades. The association offers the opportunity to stay abreast of trends in the rapidly-changing environment of scientific publishing, whether traditional or electronic. As an EASE member, you can sharpen your editing, writing and thinking skills; broaden your outlook through encounters with people of different backgrounds and experience, or deepen your understanding of significant issues and specific working tools. Finally, in EASE we have fun and enjoy learning from each other while upholding the highest standards.
The benefits of membership include the quarterly in-house Journal European Science Editing and other publications, networking opportunities, free advertising on the EASE website and discounts on software. Special rates are available for students and retired members and we also run a Sponsored Members Scheme.
A Quick Guide to the work of EASE and its various publications is available here.
The next EASE annual general meeting will take place in Edinburgh on Monday, 28th September during the Reward conference. This is a particularly important meeting, as there will be elections for the next Council. All members are invited to attend.
