I am the content administrator for the Sherpa suite of open access services: Romeo, Juliet, Fact and OpenDOAR. These services provide access to information on the open access policies of publishers and funding agencies; compliance information with UK funding agencies and information on research repositories respectively.
I review and update our records of these open access policies in order to maintain these services.
I am an information professional with a background in information management and science information provision. I am a Chartered member of CILIP and an Associate member of ILM.
I hold a BSc in Immunology from University of Edinburgh, and an MSC in Electronic Information Management from Robert Gordon University.
