Dear CSE Colleagues,
Seeking CSE Connect Insights
Has your organization used a consultant recently? If so, we’d like to hear about your experience as we plan an upcoming CSE Connect event on this topic. For example, how did you:
- decide a project warranted a consultant?
- justify the budget?
- choose a consultant?
- evaluate the outcomes?
Email us at [email protected] by September 17 and be part of the conversation.
Calling all Bibliophiles!
If you love books and love encouraging others to talk about them, then the CSE Book Club needs your assistance! We’re looking for a few folks to serve as moderators for our club discussions over the next several months. Moderating a fairly light lift and a fabulous way to connect with the CSE community. Duties include:
- Promote the book selection within CSE
- Post intermittent discussion topics on the GoodReads page
- Host a live Zoom discussion (optional)
- Write a book review for Science Editor
The best part – as a moderator, you get to work with the committee chair to select the book! Interested parties should reach out to Emily Babcock at [email protected]. While we are looking for moderators to kick off our next selection, we also have open spots later this year and into next.

CSE & Peer Review Week 2021
Peer Review Week 2021 is just around the corner, and with the theme of “Identity in Peer Review,” there’s much to discuss and cover. CSE will once again be organizing a webinar in support of Peer Review Week, which will be free to all members, as well as offering a CSE Connect. Full details on both events will be shared soon.
And be on the lookout for additional CSE resources being launched that week, September 20-24!
Welcome to the Newest Members of CSE!
