Capturing Creativity, 2023 - Presentation 3 - Practice Research Voices: Findings, Recommendations, and Next Steps (Jenny Evans)
Presentation 3 from the 'Capturing Creativity, 2023' conference on Monday 18th September 2023, given by Jenny Evans, University of Westminster.
Jenny’s current role includes responsibility for scholarly communications, research integrity and ethics strategy and policy, research impact, researcher development, research information management systems, and leading a team of subject matter experts. She was the PI on the PR Voices project which built on previous work to build an institutional repository for all research, and which embedded practice research from the beginning, and initial findings in relation to what might need to change in the open standards landscape to better reflect these outputs. Her aspiration is an equitable research (not just scientific) scholarly communications and open standards landscape, which recognises and embeds ‘non-traditional’ outputs and contributors, and which respects and values transparent access espoused by the FAIR Principles, acknowledging that text-based open access models are not always appropriate for these outputs. She started her career as a public librarian in Perth, Western Australia, and after a year of travelling around Canada moved to London where she worked as a science liaison librarian at Imperial College London before moving to a scholarly communications role at Middlesex University. She joined the University of Westminster in November 2016.
This presentation highlights the key recommendations and findings of this work (link to published report here: https://doi.org/10.34737/w3803), an update on ongoing work, and give this community the opportunity to feedback on the recommendations.
