Brian Kelly has supported the adoption of emerging web technologies across the UK Higher Education community for 20 years, first as a trainer with Netskills, then with the United Kingdom Office for Library and Information Networking (UKOLN) and most recently as an innovation advocate at the Centre for Educational Technology, Interoperability and Standards (CETIS). He is now an independent consultant.

In this podcast, Brian describes his experience of steering institutions towards the social web and makes an argument for continued risk-taking. In the wake of Jisc’s naming of the 50 most influential higher education professionals using social media, he also gives a nod to technologists and IT heads who are setting new standards in digital.

Throughout the summer at Jisc we’ve been conducting interviews with various projects that are part of the research data spring, to find out more about their work, their backgrounds, and how they’ve found the process.

In this series of interviews, we take the time to dig a little deeper into the thinking behind these projects, and get to know a little more about the work, and the people, behind them.

Jenny Mitcham, from the University of York and Chris Awre, from the University of Hull talk about their work with Archivematica and others to develop software that will automatically save research data and help fill what they call the ‘preservation gap’.

Ernesto Priego, from City University London and Andy Byers, from Ubiquity Press, talk about their work to create a series of plug-ins for open source publishing software called Open Journal Systems. These plug-ins will allow authors to publish data and articles directly from a journal managment system to insitutional repositories. This will reduce costs and save time for researchers.
