UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State University Press has announced that Julie Lambert has accepted the role of Journals Manager. Lambert has been a mainstay of the PSU Press Journals department for more than 12 years; she began as a production assistant for books and journals in 2008 and has worked as production coordinator for journals since 2011.

A member of the AUPresses Journals Committee from 2015 to 2018, Lambert brings into this new position an established relationship with both the PSU Press journals program and the scholarly publishing community.

“I am thrilled to reestablish my commitment to the journals program and am looking forward to the opportunity to manage the department in a renewed capacity,” she said. “Since I started in 2008 as the sole staff member devoted to journals, we have experienced dramatic growth in our portfolio of titles, added staff positions, adapted an in-house database, and facilitated relationships with vendors to host, archive and disseminate our content to an international audience. I’m proud to have contributed to this growth and am pleased to provide continuity as the department continues its trajectory into the future.”

In her new role, Lambert will oversee all aspects of the journals department, including a vigorously growing program that, as of 2021, will publish 80 journals. She will also become a key member of the Press leadership team, playing an important strategic role in fulfilling the overall mission of the Press.

“I am absolutely delighted that Julie Lambert has accepted the job of journals manager,” said Press director Patrick Alexander. “Julie’s talent as an industry professional, her deep knowledge of journals publishing, her leadership qualities, and her commitment to high standards made her an easy choice.”
