Soranno Named Founding Editor for Science Journal
MSU professor Patricia Soranno was named founding editor-in-chief of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography’s new journal, Limnology and Oceanography Letters.
“Pat Soranno’s innovative ideas about publishing and research excellence make her a fantastic choice to be the founding editor of ASLO’s newest journal,” said Jim Elser, ASLO president.
A professor in the MSU Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, Soranno has spent the past 20 years conducting research that integrates freshwater ecosystems into a landscape perspective from local to continental scales.
Soranno is leading a team of researchers from three universities. The group focuses on macrosystems ecology, which is the study of a variety of ecosystems and data to tackle many environmental problems such as climate change, land-use change and invasive species.
Previously, Soranno has served as an associate editor for the journals Ecosystems, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Scientific Data and GigaScience.
“The founding of this new journal is a wonderful opportunity for moving the aquatic sciences forward by showcasing the very best our science has to offer in a high-impact venue and by capitalizing on the emerging developments in both publishing and science,” Soranno said.
