Full Membership


C. Sean Burns (Ph.D., 2013, University of Missouri) is an assistant professor in the School of Information Science at the University of Kentucky. He conducts research in scientific communication and publishing and is above all interested in how information and communication technologies influence the expectations and practices of scientists and information professionals, such as academic librarians. Dr. Burns's particular curiosity is with how the creation of information, where that specifically applies to knowledge management practices, and the production and dissemination of information, where that refers to authorship, peer review, information storage and retrieval, and other social and technological elements, shape these expectations and practices.
