Information about this Video

Toby Green started working in scholarly communications in the analogue era, promoting books before going on to learn about major reference works, A&I databases, journals and, latterly, datasets which is probably why he believes that it’s all just ‘stuff’ and that knowledge, whatever its format, needs to be published seamlessly online the better to serve readers’ needs. Toby launched one of the first table of contents email alerting services, a simple linking solution to enable readers access the data behind graphs and charts and a citation framework for datasets. He pioneered selling e-book bundles on subscription and the freemium open access business model. Recently, he has written about the failure to deliver open access and is now turning his attention to the issue of impact and ways to build bridges between the academic and policy communities.
