Juan Pablo Alperin

I am an Assistant Professor in Publishing Studies and an associate researcher with the Public Knowledge Project at Simon Fraser University, Canada. I am also a recent PhD from Stanford University Graduate School of Education, where I am finished my dissertation on the Public Impact of Latin America’s Approach to Open Access. I have a mixed education background, with a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and a Masters in Geography from the University of Waterloo, Canada.

I have delivered countless of workshops for journal editors all over Latin America, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have been an invited speaker at numerous international conferences on scholarly publishing. However, when I am not trying to revolutionize academic publishing, I get busy traveling,  playing with my three-year old, baking cakes, and winning at bocce.

I’m a believer in Open Science, Open Access, Open Source and all other kinds of things “Open.” Get in touch if you share my interests in open access, altmetrics, bibilometrics, or any other aspect of scholarly publishing more broadly! And if you want to know what I am getting up to, Follow me on Twitter.
