I manage initiatives to support the development of open research repositories across the UK’s universities. This includes Publications Router, an initiative that helps institutions to capture their research outputs onto their own systems using feeds from publishers and other content providers.


I'm a research communication professional with extensive experience and expertise in STM publishing, especially journals. I was formerly publications director of Bioscientifica Ltd, the trading subsidiary of the Society for Endocrinology.
