Jeremy Berg, editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals, has announced that he will complete his tenure as editor on June 30, 2019, after three years in the role.
“After thoughtful consideration, I determined earlier this year that balancing time between the Science offices in Washington, D.C. and my home in Pittsburgh was becoming less tenable for me,” said Berg. “Out of respect for the journals’ dedicated staff and the needs of my family, I’ve decided to return full time to the University of Pittsburgh next July.”
At the University of Pittsburgh, Berg is a professor of computational and systems biology and associate senior vice chancellor for science strategy and planning.
“Jeremy has provided steady leadership during an important time of growth and change at the Science journals, which have never been better,” said Rush Holt, chief executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and executive publisher of the Science journals. “We are grateful for his service in upholding the highest standards of scholarly publication and look forward to continuing to work together through the middle of next year.”
The international search for the next editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals will be chaired by Margaret Hamburg, AAAS president.
