History of the Council of Science Editors
The Council of Biology Editors (CBE) became the Council of Science Editors on January 1, 2000. The new name, which was voted on by the membership during 1999, more accurately reflects our expanding membership.
CBE was established in 1957 by joint action of the National Science Foundation and the American Institute of Biological Sciences. Today, it enjoys close relationships with a number of scientific publishing organizations, both national and international, but it functions autonomously, relying on the vigor of its more than 1,200 members to attain the goals of the organization.
Any individual interested in the purpose of the CSE is eligible for regular membership.
