Enago Attended the 2016 Council of Science Editors (CSE) Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado


Enago attends Council of Science Editors (CSE) 2016 annual meeting to increase the awareness for the current and emerging issues in the communication of scientific information.

New York, NY, June 18, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Enago, one of the foremost providers of English editing and publication support services, attended the 2016 Council of Science Editors (CSE) annual meeting in Denver, Colorado. This year’s conference, held from May 14 to 17, had the theme “Thriving in the New Frontier” and focused on current and emerging issues in the communication of scientific information.

CSE’s annual meeting serves as a key meeting ground for industry experts and professionals engaged in academic editing, including high-level editorial staff and executives from numerous journals and societies. Enago was represented by Anupama Kapadia (Senior Manager, Editorial Operations) and Sheryl Vaz (Quality Analyst), who was one of three recipients of the CSE Scholarship.

The prestigious CSE scholarship program, awarded since 2011, bestows complimentary registration and travel grants to editors and publishing professionals at various career stages to attend the conference and increase their knowledge of and expertise in the scientific editing field. Sheryl was selected from 68 submissions, the quality of which was the highest ever according to event organizers. She now plans to share the knowledge she gained from the conference sessions to her colleagues and will also document them in a formal report.

More than 480 were in attendance at the three-day event, which included ample training sessions covering issues relevant to academic editors, such as new editing styles and requirements. Pulitzer prize-winning science journalist, Deborah Blum, director of MIT’s prestigious Knight Science Journalism Program and author of The Poisoner’s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York, kicked off the event with her keynote address that explored how today’s journalists connect with the public on issues related to science.

“There’s a reason CSE’s annual conference has become one the most popular events for scholarly publishing in North America,” said Anupama. “It is a no-holds-barred forum where all minds actively discuss strategies towards the betterment of the academic publishing domain—right from the keynote by Deborah Blum, which touched upon various aspects of how to intelligently and effectively communicate science to the average citizen, to sessions on industry-defining topics, such as ‘Transition from Print to Online Publishing’ and ‘Scientific Misconduct: Investigating Alleged Misconduct and Educating to Prevent it.’” She continued, “Personally, it was also very fulfilling to meet editing stalwarts and technical geniuses from different areas of publishing. All in all, it is a great event with enterprising individuals at the helm who will ensure that the 2017 conference will be a notch higher!”
