Rosie Grimes

Associate, Technology and Content
Rosie has spent over 22 years working in the academic journal sector, specializing in editorial processes and journal content development for two learned society publishers. In her early career at Institute of Physics Publishing, she developed in-depth knowledge of peer review and she worked extensively with the academic Editors and Editorial Boards to shape and develop their journals.

After nine years at IOP Publishing, she joined the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, as Journals Publisher, to develop its portfolio of journals. In addition to working on development of existing journals and investigating potential new journals, Rosie managed the transition from paper to online publishing (working with a number of online hosts over the years), the selection process and implementation of online peer review for the journals, and the introduction of anti-plagiarism software to improve author service.

She successfully grew the Institution’s journals business whilst continuing online product development, seeking cost-effective efficiencies and optimal use of software solutions.
