Susan Noble

Service manager (UK Data Service - international data)


Role

As part of the UK Data Service at Jisc, I manage the international data team.

Our role is to make the huge socio-economic databanks produced by Inter-Governmental Organisations (eg World Bank, the UN, the OECD and IMF) available to the UK academic community, and to promote the use of this data in teaching and evidence based research. My areas of interest include: data citation, open access, statistical literacy, e-learning, international development, SDGs, and data visualisation.

Background

Having previously worked in a commercial environment (Marconi Plc) as a business analyst and project manager, I’m now immersed in the world of socio-economic data and believe the service we provide to academia is invaluable.

I’m particularly interested in statistical literacy and increasing quantitative skills in the social sciences and aim to ensure that all users who could be benefiting from using international data know it’s freely available and easy to access.

I’m also interested in the adoption of data citation and keep abreast of issues in this field as a member of the IASSIST Special Interest Group on Data Citation.
