The European Calcium Society (ECS) Now an Affiliated Society Member of theInternational Journal of Molecular Sciences
In March 2019, the European Calcium Society (ECS) became affiliated to the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS). As part of this collaboration, all members of ECS enjoy a discount on the article processing charges (APC) when submitting articles to IJMS.
The European Calcium Society (ECS) is an international scientific society open to all researchers working in the Ca2+ field. The ECS was officially incorporated in Belgium as international non-profit association by Royal Decree of September 22nd, 1997. While the vast majority of its members (70%) work in a European country, 30% are based outside Europe and in particular in the USA, Canada, Central or South America, Australia, Japan, China, Korea as well as in various other countries. The ECS aims to:
To develop and sustain relationships between all scientists working in the field of Ca2+ binding, Ca2+ signaling and the study of the various proteins thereby involved (the "Ca2+ toolkit") as well as the upstream and downstream pathways, and also takes into account the researchers performing theoretical work in the field (modelling).
To especially encourage and support junior researchers via various incentives and to support initiatives for and by junior researchers via a “Junior Board”.
To bring all actors in the Ca2+ field together for presentation of their latest results and their discussion at our biennial International Meetings and our dedicated ECS Workshops.
To favor for all activities a bottom-up approach with extensive consultation of the members and their subsequent involvement in the realization of the activities.
To continuously promote the exchange of information and ideas between our members via our various communication means that include our monthly ECS e-Bulletins, ECS Newletters (2/year), our ECS website, our ECS Facebook page and our Slack ECS community channels.
ECS is a professional organization whose functions are highly relevant to the scope of IJMS. We look forward to collaborating with the ECS and publishing state-of-the-art research from its society members. For more information on ECS, please see here.
