September 2013

Dear CSE Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

Summer is over and business is booming. I’m so happy our membership committee has our call out for scholarship applications for the 2014 CSE Annual Meeting. I’ve just returned from the Seventh Peer Review Congress and that feeling of wow, there is so much to discuss and think about in the world of Scientific Publishing is very fresh, exciting and overwhelming at the same time. I love our 2014 theme more than ever, 4D Publishing: Data, Decision, Difference, and Direction! I think heads will be spinning at the end of the 2014 CSE Annual Meeting as well.

So, as you navigate Open Access fields of Green and Gold, looking to make an Impact despite a CHORUS or perhaps more a cacophony of data, remember that getting involved with CSE is a great way to SHARE information.

Now Accepting 2014 Scholarship Applications

The Council of Science Editors (CSE) is a dynamic community of editorial professionals dedicated to the responsible and effective communication of science. Its mission is to serve editorial professionals in the sciences by creating a supportive network for career development, providing educational opportunities, and developing resources for identifying and implementing high-quality editorial practices.

The CSE Scholarship Program has been developed to support editors and publishing professionals by sponsoring their attendance to the CSE Annual Meeting. A number of scholarships are being offered to attend the CSE Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, May 2-5, 2014. Each funded scholar will receive free registration to the Annual Meeting and reimbursement for travel expenses (including hotel stay and meals), up to $2,000.00. All applicants are welcome!

Decisions will be based on review of each application by the CSE Membership Committee. Applicants who address all points will be scored higher than those who do not. Clarity of expression and perceived enthusiasm will reflect positively on the candidate. Applicants with specific goals will be scored higher than those with vague ideas.

Applications must be received by October 7, 2013. The application must be completed on the website in English. Do not fax or mail the application form.

Best of luck to all scholarship applicants, and we look forward to seeing you May 2014 in San Antonio! If you have any questions, please contact Glenn Landis, CSE Membership Committee Chair. All applications will be reviewed and voted on by the CSE Membership Committee, with decisions being made by November.
