IOP Publishing (IOPP) has appointed Miriam Maus as its new publishing director. She will be responsible for defining and delivering the organization’s publishing strategy and leading a global team of editorial, production, and author marketing colleagues.
Miriam takes over from Antonia Seymour, who will become managing director of the organization in March when Steven Hall retires.
She joins IOPP from Wiley, where most recently she held the role of vice president and managing director in the Journals Editorial Organization, responsible for overseeing and developing their proprietary and society-owned journal portfolio across a range of subject areas and regions.
Antonia Seymour, current publishing director and soon to be managing director, said, “We are delighted to have attracted someone of Miriam’s calibre. She will play a vital role in helping us deliver on our strategy objectives, and we look forward to warmly welcoming her to the leadership team. Her energy and experience will be immensely valuable as we continue to ensure that the work of our authors, reviewers, and publishing partners gains recognition and impact.”
Commenting on her appointment, Miriam Maus said, “I feel very proud to be joining IOPP, renowned as it is for its community ties, the value it places on relationships with researchers, librarians, and partner organizations, and its editorial and operational excellence. I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues as we build on recent achievements and identify opportunities that will keep us at the forefront of developments in scientific publishing.”
Miriam will be based at IOPP’s head office in Bristol and will join the company on 25 January.
