Biography

I am preparing my PhD thesis in Information Studies at the University of Lund. My PhD Project "How Does Academic Knowledge Travel Long Distances? Social Sciences and Humanities in Eastern Africa from a European Perspective" approaches to further postcolonial research questions in information studies. ---------------------- Project Abstract ---------------------- To European social sciences and humanities (SSH) researchers, substantial parts of ssh literature produced worldwide is invisible. For instance, much literature published in Africa is neither indexed in any subject databases, nor acquired by European libraries, a gap unacknowledged by the information profession. In this thesis, opportunities to discover publications by East African SSH researchers will be investigated. Bibliometric methods applied include the construction of a bibliographic database. Scholarly reception is determined by citations in Google Scholar and Web of Science. To assess the influence that the choice of a publication venue has on the text, a sample of papers published in East African journals is compared to papers by the same authors published in journals edited in the ‘global North’, complemented by a review of the according submission policies. The analysis focusses e. g. on topics, references, and writing style. What exactly is missed out on when Africa-published literature is invisible? Crucial to this project is the discussion of concepts such as ‘Postcolonial research’, ‘international/local journals’, ‘global academia’, and ‘centre/periphery’. ------------------------- Between 2011 and 2015, I was employed at the Vienna University's Library, Open Access Office. My main functions were: research to back up strategic decisions, repository management, in the area of overlap to IT, OJS support and advisory services on Open Access publishing. I completed two M.A. degrees: Sociology and History of Art (2009), and Library and Information Sciences (2014).
