About Rebecca C. Reznik-Zellen
I am a librarian with experience in disciplinary repository development, digital library collection development, strategic planning and digital project management, scholarly communication, and research data management services. My interests are the communication of scholarly scientific works; disciplinary repositories; open access; the copy- and author rights that enable sharing of research results; and the metrics for evaluating scholarly influence.
