Johns Hopkins University Press has appointed Robin W. Coleman as acquisitions editor for public health, global health, and health policy. He will join the Books Division’s editorial department of nine full-time editors and assistants.
Coleman will continue to grow a dynamic list that includes top sellers such as Introduction to U.S. Health Policy, Health Disparities in the United States, and Governing Health. The Press’s acquisitions build on the substantial reputation of Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health, the leading school of its kind in the world.
“Robin brings to the position an energy and enthusiasm that matches Johns Hopkins’ commitment to global health,” said editorial director Greg Britton. “We are very pleased he has joined our team and look forward to building this list of books essential for this field.”
Prior to arriving at Johns Hopkins, Coleman acquired textbooks and professional resources for the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. He previously worked as a sales coordinator at Cornell University Press and currently serves as treasurer for Washington Publishers, a professional group based in the D.C. area. He has a bachelor’s degree in writing, literature, and publishing, with a minor in science, from Emerson College.
Established in 1878, Johns Hopkins University Press is America’s oldest university press and one of the world’s largest. It publishes 90 scholarly journals and nearly 175 new books each year. The Press is also home to Project MUSE, a leading provider of digital humanities and social science content for the scholarly community.
