Science Editor-in-Chief to Step Down
18 December 1998 7:00 pm
Science is looking for a new editor. Editor-in-Chief Floyd Bloom last week told the board of directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which publishes Science, that he will not seek a second 5-year term when his current appointment expires in May 2000. He said he wants to spend more time doing research at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, where he is chairman of the department of neuropharmacology.
During Bloom's tenure, Science regularly published research reports that ranked among the most cited papers of the year. The journal also expanded its international news coverage, underwent a major redesign, and made the leap onto the World Wide Web. Bloom "brought the vision, energy, and focus necessary to make it happen," says Science Publisher Richard Nicholson.
The AAAS board plans to appoint a search committee within a few weeks, with hopes of naming Bloom's successor sometime next year.
