The Council of Biology Editors (CBE) is the leading organization for people
concerned with scholarly publishing in the sciences. One CBE publication,
the CBE Style Manual, is the style manual used by many scholarly journals
in science.

The 1100 members of CBE represent the breadth of interest in scientific
publishing--journal and book editors, managing editors, technical editors,
freelance editors, publishers, printers, and authors. The purpose of the
Council is to improve communication in the life sciences by educating
authors, editors, and publishers; by providing efficient means of
cooperation among persons interested in publishing in the life sciences;
and by promoting effective communication practices in primary and secondary
publishing in any form.

Any individual interested in the purpose of the CBE is eligible for regular
membership.
