December 2013

Dear CSE Members, Colleagues, and Friends, I’m excited to announce this month our keynote and plenary speakers for the 2014 CSE annual meeting.

The program committee has done a fabulous job coming up with a program around the theme “4D Publishing: Data, Decision, Difference, and Direction.” In our electronic age, there is an overwhelming amount of data. These data are necessary to guide decisions, make a difference, and chart new directions. The keynote, plenary and breakout sessions will take us on a journey from the big picture to practical application.

The Keynote speaker will be cultural historian and media scholar Siva Vaidhyanathan, PhD, who is currently the Robertson Professor in Media Studies at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA and author of The Googlization of Everything—and Why We Should Worry.

The Plenary speaker will be publishing leader Howard Bauchner, MD, Editor-in-Chief of JAMA and The JAMA Network.

Everything is bigger in Texas. I can say that I’m a native. Expect big things in May, in San Antonio.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!

Attention: All CSE Members

The Publications Committee is working to update the Books Written and Edited by CSE Members page and we need your help. If you have authored, coauthored, or edited a book that is not already listed and that would be of interest to the CSE community, please send the complete citation information (including a URL, if available) to Lindsey Buscher.

Call for 2014 Poster Abstracts

Have you noticed some interesting or disturbing trends in your publications, do you have insightful survey data, or do you have a research question about science publishing that you can put to the test? If so, don’t miss the opportunity to prepare a poster for the 2014 CSE Annual Meeting or for future CSE meetings. And don’t forget that a research project is a requirement for the new CSE Certificate in Publication Management.

CSE members and meeting attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts describing their editorial research for presentation in the CSE 2014 Poster Session. Content must be original and individuals submitting abstracts must ensure that they will be able to attend the CSE meeting should their poster be accepted. Abstracts for posters will be reviewed by the CSE Research Committee, blinded to the identity of the presenter. Submitters will be notified whether their poster has been selected by March 1, 2014.

Please submit your abstracts by February 3, 2014 for review. For further information, please contact Mary Warner, CSE Research Committee chair.
