Monica Bradford studied chemistry at St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, receiving a BS in 1979. After college Monica worked for the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society for nine years. For the last thirty years, she has been on the staff of the journal Science, the premier global outlet for scientific news, commentary, and cutting-edge research. Through its print and online incarnations, Science reaches an estimated worldwide audience of more than 3.6 million. Science’s authorship is global too, and its articles consistently rank among the world's most cited research. Monica is currently Executive Editor of the Science Journals, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  In this position she manages editorial activities for Science and coordinates editorial policies with the other 5 AAAS journals: Science Signaling, Science Translational Medicine, Science Immunology, Science Robotics and Science Advances

Monica has worked alongside six Editors-in-Chief helping to lead the field of scholarly publishing in developing standards for authorship, conflicts of interest, reproducibility, data/material availability, dual-use research of concern and transparency. Science has published many high-profile research papers during Monica’s tenure, including the discovery of the cystic fibrosis gene, the human genome, exoplanets, quantum cascade lasers, the Bose-Einstein condensate, and small RNAs.  She worked closely with the team to maximize public awareness of these exciting results. In addition, she helped craft special issues that highlighted research that impacts societal issues such as inequality, the environment and disease.

Monica has been heavily involved in the development of Science’s website and new media offerings as well as the adoption of technologies to increase efficiency and support for a digital-first, format-agnostic publication process. In addition, she has worked with the publishing team and sponsors on establishing awards to recognize early-career scientists. Monica served on the publishing board of the American Heart Association, was a Director of the Counsel of Science Editors (CSE) as well as serving as the President of the CSE in 2007.
