Forum on World-class Learned Societies Studies


Forum on World-class Learned Societies Studies

On behalf of the Asian Council of Science Editors (ACSE), and under the approval by the ACSE, I, Dr. Charley Miao, Regional Director of the ACSE, was invited for the seminar on “Development and Operation of World Leading Learned Societies” to share ACSE’s societal operation and governance experience, and its major business areas and developments in Asia and China. I also found the event an opportunity to strengthen ACSE’s communication with the other leading societies in China.

As a representative of the ACSE, I have highlighted the current scenario of Scholarly Publishing in Asia and the supportive role of the Asian Council of Science Editors. My presentation covered the strategic efforts of ACSE in transforming scholarly communication in Asia since its year of birth. Moreover, I also shred light on the Core Values of the ACSE, it’s Initiatives and programs inclusive of but not limited to ACSE Editor’s Café, AMS Central, ACSE Reviewer’s Bank, ACSE Mentorship Program, IndexONE, and Trends in Scholarly Publishing. The audience not only acknowledges the efforts of the ACSE and its member’s geographical coverage in Asia but also appreciate the technical assistance and tools designed by the ACSE to facilitate Journal Management teams and the Asian publishing industry.

China Association of Science Study and Science Policy (CASSSP, is an academic society composed of researchers engaged in science and technology policy research in China. It is a level-one learned association and a member of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), and affiliated to the Science and Technology Strategic Consulting Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). CASSSP is committed to promoting science and technology policy and management, as well as promoting scientific and democratic decision-making of science policies in China. CASSSP pays special attention to the development of the world’s top learned societies in terms of their operation and governance experience and promotes the exchange and cooperation between them with the Chinese counterparts. Incorporated with the CAST project on a better understanding of the history, operation, and governance experience of the international learned societies, CASSSP, under collaboration with Enago, is convening a seminar on the topic with inviting top representatives from leading international learned societies in China in the near future.
