Technical and Copy Editors Wanted! The Council of Science Editors has a very long history of including copy editors and technical editors among our members. While there are certainly other organizations that serve this core group, CSE affords them an opportunity to network and collaborate with science editors, managing editors, publishers, and publishing technology experts.
It is hard to believe that summer is already wrapping up. As I get my kids ready to go back to school, I have been following up on all the scribbles on business cards and notes tossed in my pocket from some of the great conversations I had at our Annual Meeting in May.
I feel very fortunate to come into the CSE Presidency at this particular time. As you have been hearing, the board spent a lot of time last year working out a strategic plan around communication, education, excellence, and global collaborations (to name a few).
To everything there is a season (turn, turn, turn). April not only brings the return of baseball, dandelions in the yard, and a steady diet of annual meetings and conferences – it’s also the time of year when we announce our newly elected members to the CSE Board of Directors.
In keeping with our mission to provide education and resources for editorial best practices, the 2015 CSE Webinar Series got off to a great start last week with the presentation “Prevention is Better than Retraction.”
To our snow-weary CSE colleagues in Boston and the rest of New England: hang in there, the first day of spring is less than six weeks away.
Maybe it’s the cold weather and darkness of winter in my part of the world, or the promise of a new year, but this always seems to be a season for musing.
As 2014 prepares to make its exit from the stage and 2015 waits in the wings, I’d like to wish every one of you a warm holiday season, and a happy and prosperous new year.
I just returned from Brazil where President-Elect Angela Cochran and I presented talks on behalf of CSE at the Workshop de Editoração Cientíca in Campos do Jordão.
It’s already been a couple of weeks since the Board of Directors met in Washington, DC but I’m still feeling inspired by the stimulating conversations we had and our collective excitement about the future of the organization.
September has been a busy month for CSE this year. Here’s what your colleagues are up to.
A couple of weeks ago I was doing some research for an upcoming talk and started looking at past issues of Science Editor and CBE Views on the CSE website.
Henry James once said that the two most beautiful words in the English language are “summer afternoon.” Despite the fact that the temperature almost hit triple digits this week where I live, the spirit of this sentiment still has some resonance. Summer should be a time to kick back and relax a little.
Well, it’s summertime and the living is easy, to paraphrase George Gershwin.
On behalf of the Board and the CSE Nominating Committee, we are pleased to announce the newly elected members to the Board. We extend our thanks to all who ran and to our membership for participating in the vote.
