Metascience is on the move
We have some big changes to announce. First, there are some significant changes to our editorial team we would like to bring to your attention. After a number of years of great service to the journal, Catherine Murphy will no longer be our key production coordinator in the Springer office in the Netherlands. She has taken on other responsibilities at Springer. But we are pleased to announce that Eric Pieren will take on Catherine’s former responsibilities. And, again, after a number of years of great service to the journal, David Lambie, our assistant editor, will no longer be working for us. But we are pleased to announce that Lori Nash will be our new assistant editor, beginning in July. We extend a heartfelt thank you to both Catherine and David and a warm welcome to Eric and Lori.
Second, the journal will be moving its operations to the Centre for Science Studies at Aarhus University, in Aarhus, Denmark, effective 1 July 2017. This move is a consequence of the fact that Brad will be moving to the Centre in July. We would like to take the opportunity to thank a number of people at the State University of New York, Oswego, for supporting the journal while it was housed in its Philosophy Department. First, we would like to thank the College President, Deborah Stanley, for her support. Second, we owe our gratitude to the Office of the Provost for providing some of the administrative support necessary to keep the journal running smoothly, especially ensuring that the assistant editor was paid regularly and postage costs were covered. Third, we would like to thank the Philosophy Department Chair, Craig DeLancey. Craig has been very supportive from the start when Brad began talking with the former editors, Stathis Psillos and Theodore Arabatzis, about the possibility of moving the journal to SUNY-Oswego.
Next, we would like to take this opportunity to thank two people at Aarhus University who have been very supportive in our efforts to bring the journal to the Centre of Science Studies. Kristian Nielsen, Associate Professor and Head of the Centre for Science Studies, and Niels Nygaard, Professor and Head of the Department of Mathematics, are very enthusiastic about the journal moving to Aarhus and are ensuring that the journal will have a good home in Denmark. We thank them both.
Finally, we would like to thank Lucy Fleet, our Publishing Editor at the Springer Office in the Netherlands, who helped ensure that some of the additional costs associated with moving the journal would be covered. Indeed, Lucy has been and continues to be a great support in our efforts to produce an engaging journal that serves the needs of scholars in science studies, and history, philosophy, and sociology of science.
Our hope is that this move will seem seamless to our readers, with no interruptions in the service we provide.
