Dear CSE Colleagues, Next week is our annual meeting, which is the culmination of a year of planning and hard work by our Program Committee, led by co-chairs Emma Shumeyko and Brittany Swett. Emma, Brittany, and I spent a lot of time discussing the theme of this year’s meeting. We wanted to keep it positive […]
Dear CSE Colleagues, Earlier today I went to a mass vaccination site to get my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. While I was waiting in line for my number to be called, I kept thinking back to my first letter to you as CSE president, when I wrote, “I remain optimistic about the power […]
Dear CSE Colleagues, I hope your new year is off to a roaring start! If you’re like me, the holiday season already feels like a distant memory while spring and summer vacations are still an awfully long time off. If you need a pick-me-up, today is National Plan for Vacation Day, which combines two of my […]
I look forward to March because warming temperatures make everything seem slightly more pleasant. I also enjoy this month because a large chunk of my free time will be spent cheering for my favorite NCAA basketball team. Rooting for an underdog team that just upset a highly-ranked team is an additional March perk. If CSE had a cheer or chant, would it start with, “You can have my Oxford Comma when you pry it from my cold, dead, and lifeless hands.”?
I love it when a project plan comes together. Each CSE Annual Meeting is a direct result of the Program Committee’s efforts. The 2019 program carries on the tradition of thought-provoking sessions and includes some brand-new experiences, not the least of which is the option to join a guided yoga class on Tuesday morning (and leave with your own yoga mat). CSE will offer a new Short Course in 2019, Advanced Publication Management.
I hope your July is going well and has included a few moments of relaxation. Here in the Washington, DC area we’ve had sizzling temperatures and frequent reminders that conserving energy during the warmest times of the day is always appreciated.
It was fantastic to see 432 of you in New Orleans for the 2018 CSE Annual Meeting! Attending annual meetings remains my favorite way to learn about new initiatives and trends in our industry.
It’s a busy time of year for CSE! We’re deep into our plans for our Annual Meeting, just a few short months away in New Orleans.
Happy New Year! I hope that your 2018 is off to a tremendous start. Rather than making resolutions for the New Year, I like to focus on goals.

All Aboard for the Annual Meeting in San Diego…
A Time for Giving Thanks and Counting our Blessings!
Tune in! Let’s talk about webinars. People I talk to seem to either love webinars or loathe webinars. In my shop, we love them!
We’ve made it past the end-of-year holidays and are now in that productive time of year when we have to catch up on all the things we put off until “after the holidays.”
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.
