The email list is used by members to communicate directly to the wider membership, to let them know about upcoming events, job opportunities and other activities.
Membership of the list is restricted to UACES members with a paid subscription, or to those whose department holds UACES membership.
The list is largely automated, with the membership posting the content that is circulated around the list. UACES does not post material on behalf of others.
The service is run by Jiscmail and the UACES list has well over a 1,000 subscribers.
The email list is an excellent resource for circulating information about:
- Upcoming conferences and events;
- Job vacancies for positions in European Studies and related disciplines;
- Calls for papers
- Funding opportunities (bursaries etc.)
Messages that will not be circulated, but can be advertised elsewhere:
- Advertisements for books (book launch events are accepted);
Books by UACES members can be advertised in the Newsletter or the UACES Bookshop
- Advertisements for Summer Schools and Masters Courses
These can be publicised on the dedicated Summer Schools and Masters Courses sections on the UACES Graduate Forum website or sent round the EuroResearch email list
Messages that will not be circulated
- Messages that are not timely. If, for example, your message is sent on Friday afternoon for a Monday morning event, we will not circulate it (because it will not be approved in time);
- Multiple emails about the same lecture series (please send just once, with a summary of the series and a weblink for further information);
- Multiple reminders about the same event;
- Political messages;
- Messages which are for commercial purposes;
- Requests for a job;
- Information on the change of institution and contact details for a particular individual;
- Requests for support for charitable causes.
Most UACES members are added to the email list when they first join.

It is not possible to circulate attachments on the email list. This is a simple security measure to protect our membership against trojan viruses. To get around this, you will need to copy and paste the contents of any attachments into the body of your email.
Messages sent to the list are moderated and are not delivered instantly - messages posted on Friday for example will not be approved until Monday, longer if there is a Public Holiday.
IMPORTANT - Our subscribers, depending upon their subscription choices, either receive one email Digest every Tuesday, or one burst of emails each morning (excluding weekends). Most of our subscribers only receive the weekly Digest - this means that you need to post your message at least a week before the relevant event or deadline (ten days is better) to ensure maximum impact.
There are three ways that you can receive emails from the UACES email list: Regular, Index and Digest.
Regular: Each posting to the email list arrives as an individual message in your inbox. Emails are received throughout the day, although we have now introduced a policy of delivering these in one burst of emails each morning.
Index: The Index is an email listing the Subject Line and Senders of all the messages that have been circulated in the preceding week, with hyperlinks to the full message. Registering a password allows you to access these messages on the Jiscmail website. It will also allow you to search the archives.
Digest: A digest is similar to the Index in that it lists all messages from the preceding week in a single email. It differs in that you are able to access and view all listed messages directly from the email.
If you would like to switch your subscription, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
