New Editorial Leadership Ready to Lead JSPG into Next Decade of Science Policy Publishing
Washington, DC (June 23, 2021) — The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) has selected new leadership to manage the Editorial Board. On June 1, Rosie Dutt began her tenure as the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the JSPG, kicking off a month of editorial transitions for the journal.
“I look forward to leading the JSPG editorial process as Editor-in-Chief,” said Dutt, “and continue to ensure that the journal remains a platform for the next generation of science policy leaders to publish their research and enrich their writing credentials through contributing to science, technology, policy and governance.”
In addition to her role at JSPG, Dutt is currently a doctoral student in the bioimaging science program at Washington University in St. Louis, and is involved with numerous policy organizations in the United States. She is also heavily involved with science communication and has an interest in developing tools to make science more accessible to the general public.
Current Associate Editor, Ben Wolfson is set to fill Dutt’s prior position as Assistant EIC. Wolfson is a postdoctoral fellow at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) with a doctorate in molecular medicine with a focus in cancer biology from the University of Maryland Baltimore.
Andy Sanchez will transition from Associate Editor into the new role of Junior Assistant EIC for Special Editions, under the supervision of Maddy Jennewein. Sanchez is a doctoral student in chemical and biomolecular engineering at Cornell University.
“I look forward to working with Rosie Dutt in her new role as EIC, and to welcoming Ben Wolfson and Andy Sanchez to the editorial leadership team. I know that we will be able to take JSPG to the next level and continue to elevate our impact in science policy with such a talented group,” said Adriana Bankston who recently assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer & Managing Publisher of JSPG. “I also want to thank Christian Ross for his leadership of the editorial process, and Maddy Jennewein for their work on our special issues in the past several years. Their talents and vision will be truly missed, and I’m grateful for their dedication to the journal.”
