About

Background

I got a PhD in Information Studies (University College London) and my background is in cultural studies (UEA Norwich) and English literature (UNAM).

Find out more about me on my home site, at epriego.wordpress.com.

I'm a researcher affiliated to the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities. I co-founded and coordinate the editorial work of The Comics Grid Journal of Comics Scholarship, a pioneering open access academic rapid publication project. I specialise in online publishing for impact and widening participation and in the qualitative analysis of scholarly networks and academic article-level metrics.

I serve in various international digital humanities academic committees, including the ad hoc communications committee of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations' (ADHO) and the executive council of the Association for Computers in the Humanities (ACH).

Research

My research interests include comics scholarship, digital humanities, library science, open access publishing, online and mobile journalism, social media, alt-metrics, big data research and scholarly communications.
