McGill-Queen's University Press editor steps down
Donald Akenson is stepping down at the end of August 2012 after 30 years as Senior Editor of the Kingston office of the McGill-Queen’s University Press (MQUP).
“I want to extend my appreciation to Dr. Akenson for his years of dedicated service to MQUP,” says Principal Daniel Woolf. “He has made a great contribution to a Press that is a credit to its host universities.”
The Press has a solid reputation in Canada and internationally for high-quality scholarly publishing. It is one of the most prominent Canadian University Presses in the United States and Europe and its visibility has grown over the years.
The MQUP Board will begin consideration of a replacement for Dr. Akenson at its regular meeting next week.
