Weekly update #1

This is a new venture – just a quick note of what I have been up to this week. Some weeks are more interesting than others… I got the idea to do this from reading Doug Belshaw’s blog and his weeknotes.

This week I’ve been:

  • Enjoying a relaxing (and sunny!) bank holiday weekend in the Essex and Suffolk countryside
  • Working with colleagues on the consultation HEFCE will be launching later in the year on open access
  • Preparing for a presentation that I am giving at the ARMA conference on 11 June
  • Met with Janet Ilieva, the new head of the HEFCE Observatory
  • Working with colleagues to plan the evidence that HEFCE will submit to the House of Lords inquiry on scientific infrastructure
  • Written several blog posts here, and also worked on a guest post on open data that I am writing for Sciencewise
