As part of a university-wide downsizing, Harvard University Press has eliminated six positions. According to a spokesperson, a reorganization of the editorial department and the sales and marketing departments resulted in cutting two editorial positions, three marketing jobs and one sales spot. The spokesperson said the reorganization was done as a part of the university's response to the economic downturn and the decline in the value of Harvard’s endowment, and as a result of strategic planning that began before the economic crisis hit last fall. Despite the personnel cuts, no reduction in title output is planned.
