Jeremy Berg will become editor in chief of Science and related journals beginning July 1, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) announced today (May 25). Berg, a former director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and current associate senior vice chancellor for Science Strategy and Planning in the Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, is replacing the outgoing editor of the Science journals, Marcia McNutt. McNutt was nominated president of the National Academy of Sciences last year, and begins her term on July 1.

Berg’s “broad scientific perspective and passionate advocacy for basic research, combined with his interest in scientific policy, makes him a superb spokesperson for the scientific community,” search committee chair and past AAAS president Gerald Fink said in the statement.

“Jeremy Berg will bring exceptional scientific, technical, and administrative experience and insights to the position of editor-in-chief, and I am confident that he will help us to lift our journal’s standards to an even higher level,” AAAS Chief Executive Officer, Science journals publisher, and former US Representative (D-NJ) Rush Holt said in the statement. “We are grateful to Marcia McNutt for her exemplary service, and particularly her efforts to raise the bar of data reproducibility.”
