Steve Byford

Product manager (open research services)


I manage initiatives to support open research, especially Publications Router, which enables institutions to capture their research outputs onto their own repositories and other systems automatically using feeds from publishers and other content providers.


I'm a research communication professional with extensive experience. I joined Jisc in 2014 after 25 years in the scholarly (research) publishing industry and a brief stint in a university research office. I enjoy working with colleagues at institutions listening to how we can meet their needs, and with others in the wider research information chain, especially publishers and systems vendors.
