Katie Shamash

Scholarly communications analyst

My blog posts


My role is to collect, analyse and present a wide range of data on scholarly communications.

I provide data analysis to Jisc and its customers. I also work directly with stakeholders to increase the openness, quality and scope of their data.


My key area of interest is data collection and analysis for academic publishing.

I'm a Master of publishing candidate at Simon Fraser University. My research there looked at innovations in the digital publishing landscape.

Previously, I've worked as web sales and marketing manager at a trade publisher. I hold a bachelor's degree in Honours English with a minor in computer science from Concordia University, Montreal.
