Special interest groups
EASE supports the formation of communities of editors with shared interests to provide a platform for networking and discussion, and to support the creation of guidelines and resources that help raise editorial standards.
There are currently two operational Special Interest Groups and two embryonic ones.
- Gender Policy Committee
- Peer Review Committee
- Environment and Sustainability Committee – recently established
- Inclusion and Diversity Committee – proposed
If you are interested in forming a special interest group with a community of EASE members interested in the same topic, you should approach the Council (via the Secretary). Your proposal should include:
- The topic the group will focus on
- A description of why it is needed
- What are the proposed aims and objectives of the group
- How do these support the vision, aims and objectives of EASE
- Details of any members you have already approached for support
- What support you would need from the EASE Council.
Your proposal will be considered by Council, and if approved, a formal terms of reference for the group will be developed, and reporting procedures specified.
