About Paul G. St-Pierre

I'm the science collections librarian at the University of Guelph, and a former doctoral candidate at Western. My primary research interest is the political economy of scholarly communication, taking a 20th century Marxist approach (notably influenced by Gramsci and Lukács) to critiquing the commodification of scientific publishing, which continues to be problematic despite the emergence of Open Access.
