EJI Working Group

This working group is designated as a liaison between yEFIS and the European Journal of Immunology. EJI has been involved from the first hours of yEFIS and since then we have established fruitful collaboration – including but not limited to 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
  • 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 from our members!
