March 2014

CSE Members, I hope you have thawed out. Spring is almost here. I hear San Antonio is nice in the spring!

Read further for some interesting activities the program committee has planned for our May meeting.

Scientific Publishing is such a crazy beast. I find myself often trying to explain to the role of a scientific journal editor. Does anyone else have this trouble? I’ll be happy to see like-minded individuals in May. CSE will be debuting many exciting things in May and our committees have worked very hard, I think you’ll like what you see.

Industry Survey

What training have you received for your editorial role – and was it provided by your publisher or something that you undertook yourself? This short survey aims to discover what (if any) professional development is wanted by editors, and what is provided – and whether they match up. The results of the survey (being undertaken by Pippa Smart, PSP Consultants) will be presented at the European Association of Science Editors conference in June.
