This skills wheel is an output of the C3 project team from the 2017 cohort of the CSCCE Community Engagement Fellows Program (CEFP 2017). The members of the team were four Fellows: Jennifer Davison, Andreas Leidolf, Malin Sandström, Elisha Wood-Charlson, and Lou Woodley (staff). By comparing the skills listed in a range of scientific community manager job descriptions and surveying SCMs within the 2017 CEFP cohort the C3 team identified the five core competencies and component skills that make up the wheel. This guidebook is intended to be a brief, practical introduction to scientific community manager roles and provide a starting point for discussing common questions about them.
