The University of Ottawa Library is pleased to recognize Professor Stefanie Haustein as the recipient of the 2020 Open Scholarship Award. Established in 2016, the University of Ottawa Library Open Scholarship Award recognizes leaders who demonstrate excellence in supporting and practicing open scholarship. Open scholarship encompasses all aspects of open access, open data and open educational resources in both teaching and research.
Stefanie sat down with Jeanette Hatherill, Scholarly Communication Librarian, to discuss open access and more. You can watch this short interview on the Library's YouTube page.
Stefanie Haustein is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa’s School of Information Studies (ÉSIS), where she teaches research methods and evaluation, knowledge organization, information visualization, social network analysis and information literacy. Her research focuses on scholarly communication, bibliometrics, altmetrics and open science. Currently she is working on metrics literacies and research data sharing and reuse.
Stefanie co-directs the ScholCommLab, a research group based in Ottawa and Vancouver that analyzes all aspects of scholarly communication in the digital age. She is also an associate researcher at the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et la technologie (CIRST) at Université du Québec à Montréal, the Institute for Science, Society and Policy (ISSP) and LIFE Research Institute at University of Ottawa, as well as the Centre for Journalology, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI).
Open scholarship is at the heart of Stefanie's work: she not only conducts research on the topic but practices open science by publishing her findings open access (gold and green OA), sharing research data and other outputs using Creative Commons licenses and promoting open educational resources in research and teaching.
