Dear CSE Colleagues, I don’t really know what a beach read is supposed to be except perhaps reading material you’re willing to get wet and fill with sand, but Labor Day is upon us, and the season of frivolous beach reading is nearly done. Fall means back-to-school, and although the transition may be different (and […]
Dear CSE Colleagues, This month’s letter has been harder to write than usual. I spent a good chunk of last week wondering what I should focus on. A recap of the Board’s recent strategic planning session? A reminder that the end of the year is approaching and, with it, the time for us all to […]
Dear CSE Colleagues, Thank you very much for entrusting me with the opportunity to serve as CSE President. There have been moments that surprised me, even a few that lifted my left brow for more than a minute, but my time over the last three years serving as your Vice President, President-Elect, and President has […]
New opportunities present year round. Sometimes the difficult part can be saying, “Yes, Please!” (Other times the difficulty lies in understanding punctuation choices.)
Tis the season to send and receive autoresponders. I hope you have a few days to relax as the year draws to a close. It has been a fantastically busy year for CSE including, but not limited to, Short Courses, the Annual Meeting, the Publication Certificate Program, and Webinars.
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.
Happy Spring! Here on the Atlantic seaboard, we’ve faced a series of storms for the past month, so spring still seems to be a long way off.
As August turns to September, I’m thinking about all of the people who are going back to school- from the very earliest learners to graduate students.
Greetings from sunny Washington D.C., where life takes on a slower rhythm in the summertime. During this time, I enjoy many evenings on our deck, contemplating life and planning for the future. It’s so easy to get lost in the “what can we do” and overlook the “what is.”
All Aboard for the Annual Meeting in San Diego…
A Time for Giving Thanks and Counting our Blessings!
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.
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.
