Following the postponement of the 2020 EASE conference, we are pleased to announce that the 15th EASE conference will now be held from 25-27 June 2021, in Valencia, Spain.

The theme of the conference will be promoting sustainability and diversity in research: the role of editors.

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.
