A unique body of supporting expert volunteers, dedicated for empowering and managing the identity of Asian Council of Science Editors
One of the unique features of ACSE is a participation of volunteers who serve on the Board of Directors and committees which provide them easy access to network with old colleagues and making new connections. We are now seeking volunteers who are interested in sharing their expertise and time to support the cause of ACSE by joining one of the ACSE Committees. We will group our committees during the months of August and September.
