Calling all East Asian journal editors to apply for the Editage-ISMTE conference travel grant

Calling all East Asian journal editors to apply for the Editage-ISMTE conference travel grant

Each year, the International Society of Managing and Technical Editors (ISMTE) holds a series of conferences across the globe. These conferences present a great opportunity for journal editors to interact with other editors and exchange views about critical issues in journal publishing.

Editage is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to East Asian journal editors to be a part of the ISMTE 2018 North American Conference (August 2-3, Baltimore, Maryland) or ISMTE 2018 European Conference (November 8, London, UK) through travel grants that cover the conference registration fee.

To enable journal editors from East Asia to interact with industry leaders across the globe, ISMTE and Editage have partnered to provide up to four Editage-sponsored travel grants. Apart from attending the conference, the grant winners will also be felicitated during the Awards Presentation Ceremony at the event. The grants were instituted in 2017.
