EASE Council nominee

Nominated for ordinary Council member

Professor Jadranka Stojanovski

Dr Jadranka Stojanovski
Associate Professor at University of Zadar, Zadar
Research librarian at Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb

I’ve been a member of EASE for over seven years, and I am currently a member of EASE Council with responsibility for coordinating the EASE Regional Chapters. My research interests include advancements in scholarly communication and scholarly publishing, open science (open research data and open access to publications), and ethical concerns in scholarly publishing. I find the EASE community very motivating and a friendly environment for exchanging opinions, ideas and experience. With the help of EASE experiences and resources, we recently established the Croatian Association of Scholarly Communication, serving Croatian journal editors from 470 Croatian Open Access journals. I also contribute to the EASE Croatian Regional Chapter as an active member and lecturer.

As all my work is related to scholarly communication, I can continue contributing to the EASE mission and new initiatives. With the expertise in the Open Science infrastructure at national and European level, digital archives and repositories, interoperability among different information systems, and advancements in the scholarly communication, I think I can contribute to various EASE activities. Furthermore, my good insight into Croatia’s scholarly publishing community can contribute to the more inclusive engagement of the EASE journal editors. As a librarian, I understand the importance of good cooperation between publishers and the libraries.

I am willing to serve as a member of EASE Council in the next period and to increase and enrich the activities of the EASE regional chapters. I will participate in EASE publishing activities, meetings, webinars, and training workshops. Because of my intensive collaboration with different stakeholders: libraries, editors and publishers, researchers/authors, students, funders and policymakers in Croatia, I would continue to bring different perspectives and approaches.
