We’re thrilled to announce that the theme for this year’s meeting is “Phoenix Rising:  Adapting, Collaborating, and Learning in Scholarly Publishing.” As the first in-person CSE Annual Meeting since 2019, this year’s conference will offer attendees the opportunity to meet new industry colleagues on site. As we have all learned during the past few years, both professionally and personally we must be willing to adapt to changing circumstances, imagine new ways to collaborate, and consider each other as vital sources for new learning. Breakout sessions that will be presented by expert speakers at this year’s annual meeting will be a mix of tried-and-true topics with universal interest to editorial offices, journals, authors, and reviewers, and will include lessons learned during the pandemic.

Recombinant Scholarly Publishing: Challenges, Trends, and Emerging Strategies

Funder mandates and governmental policies as well as fraud and piracy – to name just a few of the forces — are changing the nature of the scholarly publishing business. Mergers and acquisitions are the headlines; however, there are significant changes happening internally to many companies. And, there are industry-wide efforts to foster greater collaboration and improved researcher experience. In this keynote, our speakers will reflect on the trends they are tracking and what they signal for the strategic dynamics around scholarly publishing and their implications for societies?

The Art of Non-traditional Science Communication: Taking Joy in Being Curious About Our World

It is easy to become disillusioned with science, to forget the joy in discovery, the magic in curiosity. This talk will focus on an early career scientist’s own experiences with publishing, open access, science communication, and outreach, and how professionals across all roles in science communication can use non-traditional methods in their day-to-day lives. Non-traditional science communication is essential to promoting diversity, accessibility, interdisciplinary collaboration, and public awareness in science.  Techniques to increase readership in science should target both the audience (patients, clinicians, families, students) as well as authors, many of whom are in the early stages of their careers. This talk serves as a call to action. Have fun with your work, talk about it to small children, give scientists opportunities to enjoy what they do, and foster communication with people of all backgrounds instead of gatekeeping data behind inaccessible academese.

Zoe Swann

Zoe is a cognitive neuroscientist and PhD Candidate at Arizona State University who works with stroke, neurotrauma, and neurolinguistic disorders. She received her B.A. in 2019 from Oberlin College in Neuroscience and Linguistics. Her passions are project management and science communication. Through her work, she has seen first-hand how rigorous clinical research—and communication of that research– can change a patient’s life. During her PhD, she prototyped a non-invasive, tele-enabled medical device and directed a clinical trial focused on increasing access to evidence-based care in stroke patients from poor, rural, and minority backgrounds. Through this endeavor, she discovered a love of making science accessible to patients and their families, clinicians, and researchers. By communicating in non-traditional ways through teaching, blog writing, working with patients, and most recently in a “Dance Your PhD” contest, Zoe continues to advocate for the importance of non-traditional science communication, especially for early-career scientists.
