Content Development Editor in Academic Publishing.
Information Professional & Qualified Librarian.
Hi, I’m Harriet. I’m a Content Development Editor in the academic publishing sector and I am responsible for onboarding (adding!) new products to our various systems and workflows. I look after two portfolios of books (Business and Education) and oversee the books workflow, as well as our publishing service OA journals, and I manage an offshore team! I focus on training, support and the development of our workflows, processes and procedures.
I’m a qualified Librarian and possess 6 years of experience working in Higher Education and 11 years of experience across libraries, galleries, museums, and archives. I’ve held a variety of roles in publishing, acquisitions and subscriptions, scholarly communications, education, research support, and administration.
The majority of my positions have focused on supporting educational activities, research support, managing, collating and inputting information, collecting data and data analysis, project work, skill sharing and training staff and students, implementing new systems and bringing projects to fruition.
I have a BA in Art History from the University of Leeds and a Postgraduate Diploma in Librarianship from the University of Sheffield. My interests, respectively, focused on modern and contemporary Western art and Open Access, archiving research, and specifically practice-based research in the creative arts, the REF and repositories.
