I am Professor of Information Science at City University London. My interests (research, scholarship, research and teaching) cover a fairly wide area, including: foundations of information science; theories and philosophies of information; information management; information-related behaviour; knowledge organisation; scientific information; information history; and qualitative conceptual analysis. See here for more details.
I’m the editor of Journal of Documentation, the leading European journal of library/information science, and am on the editorial board of Portal: Libraries and the Academy. I am a member of the council of Aslib.
My research and scholarship is mainly done through City’s Centre for Information Science, and in conjunction with our excellent group of research students. My full publications list is here, with a smaller set of key publications. I am on the advisory board for the CoLIS 8 conference, to be held in Copenhagen in 2013.
