I have for several years worked at the interface between academic users and new technological development in publishing and scholarly communication.
I am co-convenor of the Digital History seminar at the Institute of Historical Research. Tweets @IHRDigHist
Open Access publishing
In 2011 I was principal investigator of the JISC-funded SAS Open Journals project, which built a new overlay OA journal interface for SAS-Space. See the project blog.
From 2004 until 2012 I was Editorial Controller for British History Online, the digital library of key sources for medieval and early modern British history, a service of the Institute of Historical Research.
User engagement and impact
I was until August 2012 project manager of the JISC-funded Analytical Access to the Domain Dark Archive project, an IHR/British Library collaboration bringing together developers and potential users to help develop a user interface to access a comprehensive archive of the .uk web domain, 1996-2010.
