Melinda Baldwin completed her PhD at Princeton University and has held postdoctoral positions at York University and at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her new book, Making Nature: The History of a Scientific Journal (University of Chicago Press, 2015) examines the foundation and development of Nature, today arguably the world’s most prestigious scientific journal, from its first issue in 1869 up through modern debates about online publishing and open access. Her current research focuses on the development of external refereeing and peer review, both in specialist scientific journals and in grant-giving organizations.
