Owing to the continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the EASE Council have taken the early decision to move the 2021 Conference online to ensure it can definitely go ahead and attract as many participants as possible. The 15th EASE conference will be held from 23-25 June 2021, with three consecutive half day sessions and a series of related activities.

If circumstances allow nearer the time, we will incorporate some simultaneous in-person events to provide the much needed real life networking that our members are craving.

The theme of the conference will be remain sustainability. The Programme Committee will be developing the conference content over the coming months, and more information will be available on these pages as they become available. The information below has not been updated yet, so may be subject to change, but offers a flavour of what to expect.

Aims & Scope

The conference will debate the role of the editor in supporting and promoting sustainable science, and ensuring diversity through stimulating plenary speakers, panel discussions and interactive sessions.

Our theme will address the opportunities and constraints of editing in a globally diverse world where there are financial, time and skills limitations. The event will consider the part editors can play in maintaining quality of the scholarly record whilst ensuring equable collaboration and contributions to the development of knowledge for all. What can editors do? What should editors do? What standards are required?

Topics to be covered will include:

  • sex, gender and racial diversity in research and editing;
  • how to remove communication barriers with language and technical editing;
  • how to support ethical research with reproducible results;
  • the promotion of data archiving and access;
  • managing the burden of quality review and editing;
  • ensuring public outreach and the importance of editors in the promotion of sustainable, diverse, science.
