Jon Tennant: Power, preprints, and publishers - shifting research cultures towards Open Scholarship
Every year The University Library of Southern Denmark invites an internationally recognized researcher that in some way or the other can contribute to the development of the library’s services. ‘Open Science’ is central to the services of the library. We are therefore proud to welcome Dr. Jon Tennant at the library.
Dr. Jon Tennant
Independent open science communicator and consultant
Jon completed his award-winning PhD at Imperial College London. He was the Communications Director of ScienceOpen for 2 years, but has spent the last year as an independent researcher. He is the founder of the Open Science MOOC, the digital publishing platform paleorXiv, and currently works as a PLOS Paleo Community Editor. He has spent much of his recent time challenging the business practices of the scholarly publishing industry, including formal complaints to the European Commission, and working with Education International on a global campaign to democratise knowledge. He is also a Shuttleworth Flash grantee, and has also won an award for his work on peer review. As well as this, Jon was the lead author of the Foundations for Open Scholarship Strategy Development, is co-author for the Open Science Training Handbook, and is the Executive Editor for the OA journal Geoscience Communication. He has also written several kids books on dinosaurs.
