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.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
