Boston is a hub for scientific, academic, medical, technical, and professional publishing, yet many editorial office staff workers in these fields are isolated, working in small offices or from their homes, often freelancing. The International Society for Managing and Technical Editors (ISMTE) is a professional organization built to support this unique group of professional publishing colleagues, offering training, networking, and editorial-office best practices resources. Boston area members of the ISMTE host meet-ups to socialize, network, and develop professionally. The Boston local group welcomes members and non-members to join us. If you do editorial office work for scientific, academic, medical, technical, and professional publishing, we're here for you.
We typically meet monthly on a weeknight in a Boston or Cambridge restaurant located close to public transportation. Events of interest hosted by other organizations such as Bookbuilders may also be posted here. We look forward to seeing you!
