Abstract

The European Association of Science Editors (EASE) address in this chapter certain difficulties now facing editors and other professionals involved in science communication. The recent expansion of the European Union, at a time of rapidly changing publication technology, has led to an urgent need to harmonise methods and training. As the leading European organisation in this field, EASE seeks to provide access to information on best practice in science communication, primarily in the EU, but also wherever European standards in science communication are admired. The session brought together science communicators from various backgrounds with a view to identifying key areas where technical and cultural differences in methods and training might readily be harmonised into workable sets of pan-European guidelines
