Members of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) pay reduced fees at ESEB congresses, get discounts for the Open Access publication rate in Journal of Evolutionary Biology, the article publication charges for Evolution Letters, and a number of other discounts for books and journal subscriptions. Read about all discounts …
Members can apply to Conference travel awards to support participation of researchers from economically disadvantaged countries at ESEB congresses, European Meeting of PhD Students in Evolutionary Biology (EMPSEB), and the Evolution conferences of SSE/ASN/SSB. ESEB further offers Congress Attendance Aid Grants aiming to increase diversity at ESEB congresses and EMPSEB.
The Society supports young researchers, e.g., by sponsoring the annual EMPSEB meeting of PhD students in evolutionary biology, by supporting lab visits and field trips, and by awarding the John Maynard Smith Prize to outstanding young evolutionary biologists. It also supports outreach initiatives aiming at popularizing evolutionary biology to general public and countering creationism, especially in non-English-speaking countries. Moreover, ESEB offers Equal Opportunities Initiative funds aiming to improve equal opportunities in evolutionary biology and awards to highlight the achievements of under-represented early-career researchers.
By joining the society, you can support all of these initiatives!
