The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) is an international community of individuals and associations from diverse backgrounds, linguistic traditions and professional experiences in science communication and editing.

Croatian Regional Chapter

The Croatian Chapter of EASE was established in January 2013 by eleven EASE member editors from Croatian journals. Its aim is to promote collaboration among EASE members and organize training activities for editors and authors in Croatia and the region. Continuing goal is to organize conferences at least once per year to discuss topics of interest for the Chapter, and also to promote group cohesion and group thinking.
