"The British Library is seeking to appoint a Scholarly Communications Lead to help redefine its role as a provider of open access services to its global research audience and the UK Higher Education sector. The post holder will shape our scholarly communications strategy and work with colleagues across the Library and with external partners to implement it, in particular with regards to open access services (including preservation, discovery and enhanced analytics/text and data mining). While the focus of the British Library is on the UK, the scholarly communications ecosystem is global and we are seeking new ways to contribute and sustain it in partnership with relevant national and international organisations. Working closely with the BL’s Head of Research Services the post holder will represent the Library internationally, offering an exciting opportunity to influence the development of the global scholarly communications and open access ecosystem. The post will be based in the newly formed Research Infrastructure Services section of the Research Services department that includes similar roles focusing on data, discovery and repository services."
