"I have worked with Barbara at George Washington University since 2006. She is a pleasure to work with, and knows journals publishing inside and out. Barbara is an excellent teacher, and creatively and effectively conveys her vast knowledge of publishing to our students. I truly believe that the students in the program are fortunate to have Barbara as an instructor. I base this not only on her experience and knowledge, but also because she is a caring person, and creates a positive learning environment in the classroom."

"Barbara could and probably should write a book based on her all-round knowledge of the STM journal publishing industry ... As well as consulting for a wide range of excellent clients, she has been a publisher herself, implementing some of the strategies she prescribed for many years, all to a positive affect. I owe Barbara a big thanks for helping me get established here in the US, wise and friendly advice ... it's always a pleasure to meet and talk with Barbara, she's a trusted source of information and experience, and I should add founding rock of SSP, the organization has helped so many people in the industry over the past 30+ years!! Thanks from all of us, Barbara. ;-))"
