The 2022 CSE Annual Meeting will take place May 1–3 in Phoenix, AZ, and we have the honor of serving as this year’s Program Committee Co-Chairs. Along with our dedicated Committee members, we are working diligently to carry on CSE’s tradition of outstanding educational content and networking opportunities.
We’re thrilled to announce that the theme for this year’s meeting is “Phoenix Rising: Adapting, Collaborating, and Learning in Scholarly Publishing.” As the first in-person CSE Annual Meeting since 2019, this year’s conference will offer attendees the opportunity to meet new industry colleagues on site. As we have all learned during the past few years, both professionally and personally we must be willing to adapt to changing circumstances, imagine new ways to collaborate, and consider each other as vital sources for new learning. Breakout sessions presented by expert speakers at this year’s annual meeting will be a mix of tried-and-true topics with universal interest to editorial offices, journals, authors, and reviewers, and will include lessons learned during the pandemic.
We are looking forward to 2 keynotes this year. First, undoubtedly, you’ve noticed a lot of activity in the mergers and acquisitions space, with publishers buying services companies and long-time service providers buying platforms and technology startups. The Program Committee was curious about how all of these developments would affect publishers, especially society publishers. Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor and Coordinator for Information Literacy Services at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Roger Schonfeld, Director, Libraries, Scholarly Communication and Museums at Ithaka, have kindly agreed to help us make sense of recent changes and to share some of their thoughts on the longer-term impacts of these developments.
Our second keynote will feature Zoe Swann, a cognitive neuroscientist and PhD Candidate at Arizona State University with an advanced knowledge of stroke, neurotrauma, and neurolinguistic disorders. Zoe is also a contestant in this year’s “Dance Your PhD” contest, sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Zoe will talk about unique methods in scholarly communications intended to help lay audiences make sense of science advances. She will share some of her novel teaching strategies, as well as her own journey in creating her submission video detailing her research in rehabilitation for stroke patients.
We hope you’ll join us in Phoenix as we come together as a community for the first time in 3 years! We’re looking forward to having the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from our peers in the exciting and ever-changing world of scientific publishing.
