Greetings again. I hope that all is going well for you.
As you may know, the term AuthorAID can appear in the name of any project to help developing-country researchers write about and publish their work. The largest AuthorAID project (ours) is headquartered at INASP (the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications).
Thus, the full name of our project is AuthorAID at INASP. The AuthorAID team includes INASP staff members who spend part of their time working on AuthorAID. It also includes others (like me) who do some work for AuthorAID but are based elsewhere.
INASP has a variety of projects to support global communication of research. For more information, I encourage you to see the INASP website.
Last week, INASP announced that it had appointed a new executive director: Sue Corbett.
Sue Corbett has extensive experience in science publishing and social science publishing. She worked at Blackwell Publishing for many years. Then she was managing director for medical publishing at John Wiley and Sons.
More recently, she advised several NGOs (nongovernmental organizations). Starting in January 2012, she was interim executive director of INASP.
I was fortunate to meet Sue Corbett at the INASP 20th anniversary symposium. In fact, we happened to sit across from each other at lunch. I enjoyed talking with her, and I am happy to learn that she is the new executive director of INASP.
A message from Sue Corbett appears on the INASP website. Please join me in welcoming her as executive director of INASP.
