Elsevier appoints Charlotte Wien to the newly created role of Vice President, European Library Relations

Amsterdam | February 1, 2023

Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Charlotte Wien to the newly created role of Vice President, European Library Relations.

Dr. Wien will join Elsevier on February 01, 2023 to build and enhance the company’s relationships with the European academic library community, and to strengthen Elsevier’s commitment to be a trusted, innovative, and collaborative provider of services and content. She will report to Gwen Evans, Vice President of Global Library Relations, who joined Elsevier in 2020 from OhioLink to lead the company’s engagement and partnerships with the global librarian community.

Gwen Evans, Vice President of Global Library Relations at Elsevier, said: “I am delighted to have Charlotte join our growing team at Elsevier. Her insightful expertise will be invaluable as we continue to deepen our engagement with library leaders in Europe and support the scientific community in their efforts to advance research and innovation. Her experience as a librarian and as a senior researcher in scholarly communications and open science gives her a unique perspective."

Commenting on her new appointment, Dr. Charlotte Wien, Vice President, European Library Relations, said: "I am thrilled to take on this new and crucial role, serving the academic library community and the wider research ecosystem in Europe. I very much look forward to building on our existing relationships and fostering new collaborations with librarians across Europe, supporting their vital role in advancing the impact of their institutions.”

Dr. Wien’s appointment comes on the heels of the October 2022 announcement of Emily Singley as the North American V.P. of Library Relations. She brings a wealth of experience to this role, having spent more than 20 years working in the field of academic research, communication, and policy. Her most recent role saw her serve as a full professor of Scholarly Communication at the University of Southern Denmark and Head of Research at the University Library of southern Denmark. She holds a Ph.D. in Library and Information Science. Previous roles have seen her work on several projects relating to the international rankings of universities, bibliometrics, research registration, and the responsible conduct of research.
