Bill Moran氏(Publisher of Science Family of Journals, AAAS)Science_JPNMTG_Bill Moran Headshot 2 High Resolution.jpg

Bill Moran is currently the Publisher of the Science Family of Journals. In his role, Bill and the publishing team are responsible for content, rights and permissions, licensing, scientific meetings, publishing collaborations, advertising, outreach, Science Careers and all publishing operations.

During his 11 years with AAAS, Bill has been instrumental in broadening the association's international publishing activities and collaborations. He spearheaded the launch of the Beijing office; in addition, he developed an international collaboration program for Science Publishing that encompasses Science Careers outreach. Bill has also worked with the Science editorial team to raise awareness of Science/AAAS within academic institutions in developed and developing countries. Notably, in 2014, Bill collaborated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences to arrange a meeting between former Editor-in-Chief of Science Dr. Marcia McNutt and the Premier of China Li Keqiang. He further established Science Custom Publishing activity a decade ago.

Before taking on the role of Publisher Bill's previous role was Director of Global Collaboration and Custom Publishing. These responsibilities include operations related to the following products: Science, Science Signaling, Science Translational Medicine, Science Immunology and Science Robotics, and outreach. Science Careers was a large part of Bill's responsibility and the task of building awareness for Science Careers as a valuable tool for all researchers regarding career development.

The first ten years of Bill's career were with the Nature Publishing Group. Bill was a senior VP of Nature America based in New York City. While at NPG, Bill developed the strategy and launched the first online job board for NPG, including a founding member of Nature online. Additionally, his responsibilities included working on several new journal launches, Nature jobs, and developing supplements and conferences for NPG.

Before moving to Science/AAAS, Bill was recruited by Informa based in the Boston area to help with their launch into the STM market. While at Informa, Bill was responsible for several new product launches and the acquisition of new journals, including the redesign of online products. He received his bachelor's degree from Baruch College.

Kei Koizumi氏(Visiting Scholar in science policy, AAAS)Science_KeiKoizumi.jpg

Kei Koizumi was most recently Senior Advisor for Science Policy at AAAS, where he worked to establish the AAAS Center for Scientific Evidence in Public Policy (EPI Center) and enhance AAAS's capacity to advocate on behalf of science. He was Assistant Director for Federal R&D at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Obama Administration. Before that, he was Director of the AAAS R&D Budget and Policy Program. He now lives in Shanghai, China, as a science policy consultant. He currently serves as chair of AAAS Section X, Societal Impacts of Science and Engineering, and is a Fellow of AAAS. He received an MA in International Science and Technology Policy at the George Washington University, where he teaches science policy, and a BA in Economics and Political Science from Boston University. He is from Columbus, Ohio.

The Future of Science and Society Starts with You

We know science makes the future happen, but science today and tomorrow requires more than experiments and publishing the results. We all face the challenge of connecting science to the challenges we face as a global society. I'd like to talk today about how I've worked with Science and AAAS to connect science to society and offer some ideas to my Japanese colleagues from my own experience. I'll talk about how I've worked at AAAS to connect scientists to policymakers and science to policy, how I've worked at several institutions to connect scientific advice to informing important decisions, how effective science communication increases the impact of research, and how we can all work together to make science a welcoming environment for everyone. We have so many difficult challenges such as a warming planet, aging societies, and environmental pollution that everyone has to participate in making science part of the solution. Whether we are early-career scientists or policy makers, Japanese or American, researchers or communicators, we can work together to improve science and society.
