Danny Kingsley is coming home and will settle in Brisbane. The ex ANU staffer is leaving Cambridge University after four years as libraries deputy director for scholarly communication & research services. “This has been a very difficult decision to make, but it became clear some time ago that as a family we were unable to remain in the UK, and this is a good time to move in terms of the stages that my children are at in their schooling,” she tells friends.
Learned readers suggest this is a win for open access in Australian research, nowhere near as advanced as in the EU, where Plan S prescribes all scholarly publications which result from public funding must be published in OA journals or OA platforms from 2020.
Dr Kingsley is an expert in the costs and benefits of OA digital delivery, with the policy knowledge and governance skills to help agencies and institutions towards expanding OA.
