We’re working to consolidate and share resources about scientific community management and to nurture a new community of practice for scientific community professionals.
We’re building out a series of resources pages that currently include:
- Hiring / Becoming a community manager
- Being a scientific community manager
- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
- Online communities and communication tools
- In-person community events
If you’d like to contribute, for example by offering to present a webinar or create a case study of your community, we’d love to hear from you (email@example.com)

The CSCCE community of practice
We host a community of practice for scientific community managers – and those interested in scientific community-building. With monthly webinars and an online Slack group this is a great way to start connecting with others supporting scientific communities.
Stay up to date with what’s coming via our monthly newsletter.
