Article expanded to provide additional information on science in Europe. Pvosta 11:53, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

This organisation is comparatively recently established, but in terms of distinction of membersip and scope it is comparable with organisations such as the National Academy of Sciences in the USA and the Royal Society in the UK. The article needs expanding, but notability exceeds that of other Societies listed in WP (eg various US sororities and fraternities).

Agreed, it is worth having some information, but it is hard to get. The journal European Review which it publishes is not widely available where I am. There was an article I wanted to read. To contribute to this article an editor will need to read the European Review, so please if your have the volumes nearby, tell the rest of us what this semi-secret organization does.Rgdboer (talk) 02:44, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

A bad source[edit]

While looking for sources to convince Piotrus of the notability of this organization, I found one that seems to be completely independent of the AE (unlike most of what we have now) but which I'm not using:

  • Korica-Pehserl, Petra; Latif, Atif (2011), "Meshing Semantic Web and Web2.0 Technologies to Construct Profiles: Case Study of Academia Europea Members", in Fong, Simon, Networked Digital Technologies: Third International Conference, NDT 2011, Macau, China, July 11-13, 2011, Proceedings, Communications in Computer and Information Science, 136, Springer, pp. 334–344, doi:10.1007/978-3-642-22185-9_28 .

Reason for avoiding this one: its description of AE seems to be copied from here, so using it would violate WP:CIRCULAR. —David Eppstein (talk) 06:27, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
