WHY JOIN?

The ESEB is an academic society that brings together over 1600 evolutionary biologists from Europe and the rest of the world - researchers, academic teachers, students, as well as journalists and other persons interested in evolution. By joining you become part of this academic community.

The biennial Congress of ESEB is one of the largest scientific meetings in broadly defined evolutionary biology. Members are entitled to substantially reduced registration fees. The society also offers travel stipends to support participation of student members from economically disadvantaged countries.

The membership of ESEB includes a personal on-line subscription the Society's journal, the Journal of Evolutionary Biology. The journal has an Open Access option, and authors who are members of the Society benefit from a 50 % discount on the Open Access fee for their papers (US$ 1500 as of August 2009). Members are also entitled to a 25 % discount on all books published by Wiley-Blackwell and a 20 % discount on Ecology & Evolution books from Oxford University Press, as well as other promotional offers.

The Society supports young researchers, e.g., by sponsoring the annual EMPSEB meeting of PhD students in evolutionary biology, 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. By joining, you can support these initiatives.

The ESEB is a platform of integration for evolutionary biologists from different countries. Endorsement and logistic support of the ESEB is particularly important for local evolutionary biologists in countries with little tradition and few researchers in evolution. As an active member you could also receive endorsement and support for evolution-related initiatives in your country.
