Distinguished Editors Series: Cell Masterclass on Scientific Writing
3 & 4 November 2014, Monday & Tuesday, NUHS Tower Block
Dr Emilie Marcus, CEO, Cell Press & Editor-in-Chief, Cell
Dr Emilie Marcus is the Editor-in-Chief of Cell since 2007 and become the CEO of Cell Press in 2012. After a successful graduate and postdoctoral research career at Yale University followed by the Salk Institute and UCSD, she joined Neuron as its editor for 5 years before joining Cell in 2003.
In addition to her role in setting the scientific vision for the journal, Marcus conceived and launched the “Article of the Future” the newest wave of e-publishing, the “author-pays” Cell Reports, the Lunch&Learn series of HBS Case Study discussion as management training tool, and the Leading Edge section in Cell which expands the realm of content in the journal beyond primary research results.
Outside of Cell Press, Marcus has been a major contributor to debates on issues facing scientific publishing. She has served as a panelist on open debates about alternative publishing models at Harvard and Brandeis Universities and on the publishing ethics panel at the 2006 Annual Meeting of the Council of Science Editors. She also contributed to debate around the value and robustness of the peer-review process, handling potential conflicts of interest for authors, reviewers and editors, scientific misconduct and data manipulation, the impact of new information technologies (blogs, wikis and data and text-mining capabilities), new publishing business models, and the uses and abuses of the impact factor as a measure of journal quality.
