President's Letters

February 2019

Dear CSE Colleagues, I love it when a project plan comes together. Each CSE Annual Meeting is a direct result of the Program Committee’s efforts.

September 2018

I hope the first half of your September included participation in various Peer Review Week festivities. Aims included showcasing the work of editors and reviewers while simultaneously highlighting innovation. And that wasn’t the half of it, because Peer Review Week remains ambitious. As it should be!

August 2018

How did I kick off August? The same way I do every year (talking about scholarly publishing). In 2018 that meant attending, and seeing some of you, at the ISMTE North American Conference in Baltimore, MD. Many thanks to Jasmine Wallace, Julie Vo, Glenn Landis, Shari Leventhal, and Alison O’Connell for manning the CSE booth! I was also pleased to speak at the meeting in a panel on professional development, which included Dana Compton, CSE President-Elect.
