I worked closely with Jan for over ten years in the very challenging task of establishing a new academic journal. She was a consummate professional in all aspects of the job — an efficient manager of staff and production schedules, expert editor with a keen eye for detail, and calmly responsive and reliable when confronted by the unexpected. Jan Schubert is a treasure!
I have worked with Jan Schubert, as an editor and author, for several decades and cannot speak too highly of her professionalism and the quality of her work. Her efficient and timely management of the production of academic journals and other materials, and her attention to detail, results in an unparalleled superb product: I recommend her services unreservedly.
Dr. Jan Schubert almost single handedly organised, managed and edited Environment and Planning B throughout the period I have been Editor of that journal, from 1982 until today. The massive advantages of having someone who is scientifically literate and at the same time conscious of what the readership of the journal requires is a huge advantage for any Editor. She has great skills and I recommend her work to anyone contemplating working in a complex publication where she can bring her editorial skills to bear as well as managing publication through all the diverse stages.
