Dr Gabriella BÖHM
Head of Journal Publishing

 

Gabriella has worked at Akadémiai Kiadó as Head of Journal Publishing since May 2020.

Besides leading the journal publishing team, she is responsible for setting and implementing the strategic goals of the business branch. She is the primary contact for our scientific and other contract partners, such as the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the editorial boards and funding universities of the journals, companies, indexing agencies, suppliers, and distributors.

She has exchanged her research career to an alternative way of serving science. She obtained her PhD in Physics from Eötvös Loránd University, but her achievements primarily enrich the field of pure mathematics (algebra, category theory). She is Doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and a member of its Public Board. She profits from her previous professional experiences, namely, authoring several dozens of scientific articles and a monograph and acting as a reviewer and an editorial board member, daily in her current job.
