Dr Samuel A. Moore is the Scholarly Communication Specialist at Cambridge University Library, where he is responsible for the university’s strategy on academic publishing and research communication. He has a PhD in Digital Humanities from King’s College London and is currently working on his first monograph for the University of Michigan Press entitled Publishing Beyond the Market: Open Access, Care and the Commons. He is also one of the Radical Open Access Collective organisers, a community of scholar-led, not-for-profit presses, journals, and other open access projects.
Working at the intersections of information and education studies, Dr Moore’s research focuses on the relationship between open access publishing and ideas of the commons, particularly how the two concepts relate to one another and can be productively deployed to nurture experimentation and collaboration within the humanities. This critical research calls for a broader assessment of the contemporary university, research assessment and their relationship with the marketized publishing industry, particularly the institutional forms, governance mechanisms and relationalities required for more open and equitable research cultures.
