May 25, 2010 - Dr. Barbara Gastel
finished her term as the editor for Science Editor at the
Council of Science Editors annual meeting in Atlanta May 14-18.
Accompanying her were STJR students Bernard Appiah, Wura Aribisala,
George Hale, Christina Sumners, and Emily White, who reported on
meeting sessions for Science Editor.
Gastel and the STJR students covered sessions on topics such as
ethics, best hiring practices, communicating with non-native
English speaking authors, how journals can use the Internet,
international markets, and data visualization. Articles on these
sessions will be published in Science Editor in the fall.
This year's meeting theme, "
The Changing Climate of Scientific Publishing-The Heat Is On ", refers both to global climate change
and future changes to scientific publishing. Speakers J. Marshall
Shepherd and George Luber covered the issues surrounding climate
change and how those changes could affect public health.
At the awards luncheon on Monday May 17th, Dr. Gastel received
the Award for Meritorious Achievement from the Council of Science
Editors. After receiving the award, Gastel gave a speech about
Science Editor, how it has changed over the past 12 years that she
has been editor, and how it is time for new ideas and perspectives
for the journal. For more information, see the College of
