Scholarly Publishing: SAGE Appoints David Ross as Executive Publisher of Open Access

From a SAGE Announcement:

SAGE is pleased to announce that David Ross has been appointed as Executive Publisher of Open Access. In his new role, Ross will assume global responsibility for the strategic direction of OA in SAGE’s Journals program.  He will oversee a team that will manage SAGE’s flagship Open Access journals: SAGE Open, SAGE Open Medicine, SAGE Open Engineering, and SAGE Open Medical Case Reports and develop systems, process and policies to support our OA publishing.

Ross has a rich history of experience with Open Access. He managed SAGE’s initial venture into OA publishing, a partnership with Hindawi, and was a founding board member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the now burgeoning global trade association established in 2008 to represent the interests of OA journal publishers. As SAGE’s official representative on a number of OA panels and projects, Ross represented SAGE as one of the publishing partners for the Study of Open Access Publishing (SOAP), a two-year projected launched in 2009 with the aim to disseminate broadly a description and analysis of models of open access publishing.
