Research outputs team

The Research Outputs Team in the Library is responsible for providing support for researchers and academics.  This includes Open Access publishing, REF eligibility, bibliometrics and research data.  Although we are based in the Library, we work closely with the department of Research and Innovation Services (RIS).

Dr Emily Davey, Research Outputs Manager

I have been at the University of Portsmouth since 1999. After completing my undergrad degree in Computer Science, I completed my PhD in Creative Technologies in 2007. Prior to working in my current role in the Library, I was the Senior Online Developer in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences for 6 years.   

Dr Andrew Clark, Research Outputs Officer

I joined the Research Outputs Team in October 2014 after working for over a year as a Research Administrator in the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies. Prior to this I received my PhD from the University of Portsmouth in January 2012. As Research Outputs Officer my role involves validating the REF-eligible outputs that have been entered into Pure, and supporting the application process for Article Processing Charges (APCs). I am happy to receive any queries that relate to HEFCE's open access policy for the next REF.

Soozi Mead, Research Outputs Assistant

My role involves making sure the research shared on the Portsmouth Research Portal abides by copyright and licensing laws. I validate all elements of the University’s research outputs submitted into Pure, and compile data for the RCUK, which helps the University monitor the progress it is making towards complying with HEFCE's Open Access policy. I am an advocate for the value, ethics and ethos of open access and like to work to improve freedom of access to knowledge and information.
