Annual Reviews appoints Lindzi Wessel as Reporter for new digital magazine

Nonprofit publisher Annual Reviews is pleased to announce that Lindzi Wessel has been appointed Reporter for the new digital magazine, set to launch in Fall 2017. Editor Eva Emerson welcomed her, saying:

I am delighted that Lindzi has joined our small but growing team. As hire number three, she will help to create stories that bridge the gap between our expert reviews and the needs of a wider general audience for engaging and accurate information that explains how science shapes our lives.

Lindzi joins us straight from an internship at Science Magazine as a news and feature writer and has published with STAT and The San Jose Mercury News among others. She is a graduate of the UC Santa Cruz Science Communication program and holds a master’s in neuroscience from UC Davis. 

The new digital magazine will explore the real-world significance of research covered in Annual Reviews journals in a compelling and accessible way. Mirroring the scope of the journals themselves, the content will be freely available to anyone to read and reuse, and will attract those who wish to stay abreast of progress in research in the natural and social sciences. This initiative receives support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Annual Reviews is a nonprofit publisher dedicated to synthesizing and integrating knowledge for the progress of science and benefit of society. Please visit the Annual Reviews Press Center to sign up for media-only access to journal content.
