About us

Welcome to EASE

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. We welcome members from every corner of the world

EASE 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 whilst upholding the highest standards.

History of EASE

EASE was formed in May 1982 at Pau, France, from the European Life Science Editors' Association (ELSE) and the European Association of Earth Science Editors (Editerra) (see the Photo Gallery). A detailed description of Editerra and its amalgamation with ELSE has been written by John Glen.
