European Journal of Immunology WG

This working group serves as liaison between yEFIS and the European Journal of Immunology (EJI). EJI has been involved since the first hours of yEFIS and we have since established a strong and fruitful collaboration. You can find some of the outcomes of our work in the publications listed below. 

Currently, we are working on: 

  • Regular written contributions focused on activities from yEFIS & National YI Groups
  • Preparing contents for specific occasions like the international Day for Women and Girls in Science (see below) or the Day of Immunology
  • Highlighting first-time first-authors and first-time last-authors (see EJI first-timers policies: LINK
  • Promote content through our social media channels with special focus on ECR publications
  • Workshops and guidelines for ECRs covering topics like peer-review, editorial work etc.
  • We’re always welcoming new ideas and members!
