Member Referral Program

Share your CSE membership experience and be rewarded!

Through the Member Referral Program, you can be rewarded for your recruitment efforts and expanding the CSE community.

No one knows the value CSE membership brings to the scientific editing and publishing community better than members.

If you are a member in good standing and you refer one or more individuals who decide ‎to join CSE in any individual membership category, you are eligible to receive one free CSE webinar registration!

You may refer individuals within the same organization or workplace as yourself, as long ‎as they are joining as individual members. You are also welcome to promote CSE ‎membership widely through social media channels—as long as new members identify you by ‎name in their application, you are eligible for the reward.

To take advantage of this program please have the members you recruit include your name in the “How did you hear about CSE?” field on the paper application or in the “Notes/Comments” field when applying online. If assistance is needed, please email CSE (CSE@councilscienceeditors.org). It is not permissible to apply this promotion retroactively.

  • Discounted registration fees for the CSE Short Courses, which cover everything from peer review, publication management, and manuscript editing to intellectual oversight and editorial policy making
