In this episode of SSP’s Early Career Development Podcast, hosts Meredith Adinolfi and Sara Grimme chat with Anne Flegel, the Head of Academic Book Operations at Oxford University Press, and Midori Baer, Senior Director of Publishing Operations at the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science (PNAS), on the role of operations in scholarly publishing.
Sara Grimme is the Director of Strategic Accounts at Digital Science. Prior to joining Digital Science, Sara was Publishing & Product director at Elsevier, and launched Elsevier’s open access mega journal, Heliyon. Before joining Elsevier Sara worked for Nature Publishing Group, launching and running the open access journal Scientific Reports. When not thinking about all things publishing and open access, Sara can be found with a giant stack of books and a glass or two of wine, while pondering her next travel adventure.
